In laid-back Queensland, sparkling coral waters dotted with picture-perfect islands combine with city-lined beachscapes and a thriving bar and café culture.

From stretches of secluded sand backed by national parks to popular surfing spots just metres from a city’s skyline, Queensland is home to some of the most varied beachscapes in Australia. Southern Queensland is a subtropical haven, famed for its casual laid-back lifestyle and entertaining attractions, while in the tropical north lies one of the world’s most remarkable landscapes and some of the most diverse rainforest in the world.

Queensland holidays - perfect for...

  • Australia's East Coast route is the probably the most popular of all Australia and great for self-drive holidays - we'll help you perfect your own unique itinerary
  • Brisbane and the Gold Coast have a vibrant beach culture whilst the Sunshine Coast, including Noosa, is slightly more relaxed
  • Fraser Island is popular - not least due to the amazing beaches, forests and lakes only accessible by 4x4 vehicles
  • There's plenty to do in and around Cairns; there's also Port Douglas which is a popular, quieter alternative for access to the Great Barrier Reef
  • Tropical North Queensland is as much about the rainforest as it is the reef - head to the Daintree National Park and Cape Tribulation to see the forest meeting the reef on a simply stunning beach
