Queensland Highlights

Queensland's vibrant capital

Brisbane combines the best of Queensland's laid back lifestyle with the sights and sounds of a major metropolis. Hunt for treasure in the chic shops and arcades of Queen Street Mall or the bohemian precinct of The Valley. Cycle or stroll along the shores of the Brisbane River; scale the heights of the Story Bridge. Delight in the tropical climate.

All that glitters is the Gold Coast

Glitzy nightlife, fabulous forests, international theme parks and fast-paced action are just some of the reasons why the Gold Coast is famous for fun. Along with endless stretches of golden beaches, including the world-famous Surfers Paradise, there are designer-label shops, world-class golf courses and award-winning restaurants. The hinterland boasts World Heritage-listed national parks, sub-tropical rainforests, wineries and luxurious spa retreats.

One of the world's seven natural wonders

Once you’ve experienced the Great Barrier Reef you will know why it is one of the seven wonders of the natural world. Diving and snorkelling are a must. Stay at a one of the many heavenly island resorts. Charter a yacht and sail The Whitsundays. Find your own uninhabited island. Where else in the world can you find a beach where the only footprints in the sand are your own.

Where rainforest meets reef

The Daintree Cape Tribulation Rainforest is as spectacular as the Great Barrier Reef. The only place in the world where the rainforest meets the reef, this unique wilderness is home to the biggest range of rare plants and animals on earth. Hike along walking trails through pristine jungles spotting for wildlife or relax on golden beaches lapped by calm waters.
