Queensland Tours, Vacation Packages & Travel Experiences


  • Snorkeling the Great Barrier Reef
  • Heart Reef, the Whitsundays
  • Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary, Brisbane
  • Gold Coast at Night
  • Visit Australia Zoo on the Sunshine Coast

Australia’s ‘Sunshine State’ enchants with both its natural beauty and its laid-back outdoor lifestyle. Boasting the world’s largest natural reef system doesn’t hurt its appeal either. The Great Barrier Reef stretches along more than half of Queensland’s coast. Most visitors approach the reef from Cairns or Port Douglas, where vibrant pockets of it can be accessed on a variety of vessels. North Queensland’s treasures also spread inland with the UNESCO World Heritage Listed Daintree Rainforest and Cape Tribulation.

The Great Barrier Reef stretches all the way to Queensland’s Whitsundays, a sailing paradise where near-untouched green islands dot azure waters that remain at perfect swimming temperatures year-round. Whitehaven Beach in particular is frequently hailed Australia’s best, and one of the best in the world, lining uninhabited Whitsunday Island.

Not to be overlooked, Southeast Queensland is a favourite getaway for many Aussies. Brisbane’s days as Australia’s provincial northern city are long gone. The state capital today is a cultural and economic powerhouse, with an appetite for outdoor living unmatched elsewhere in the country. To the south or north, either the Gold or Sunshine embody Australia’s surfing beaches at their finest, with a destination to suit everyone from the visitor-ready high-rise skyline of Surfers Paradise to the relaxed shores of Caloundra or Coolangatta.

Whether your Australia vacation is about adventure or relaxation, there’s a part of Queensland waiting to join your list of favourite destinations.
