Welcome to the Tropical North. From wild, fertile rainforests to white sandy beaches and the largest coral reef in the world, Queensland is the tropical part of Australia. Boasting some of the best beaches in the country and around 300 days of sunshine a year, Queensland is the ultimate Australian holiday destination.

Dive in the Great Barrier Reef, with thousands of species of fish and coral. Trek through the tropical Daintree rainforest or relax on the serene sandy beaches of the Whitsundays islands. If you can brave the heat, head out into the Outback to hunt for fossils on the Dinosaur trail. Whatever you want to do while you're there, Queensland is the sun-seeking traveller’s paradise.

Aside from bountiful beaches, Queensland had some pretty cool cities too. The capital Cairns is a real backpacker’s retreat – with hip hostels, cheap eats and a happening night life. Down on the south coast, you’ll find the laid-back café-culture of Brisbane, with up and coming arts scene and down to earth locals.
