QUEENSLAND was the first of Australia’s states to commit to major tourism development – and no wonder. The state offers an extraordinary profusion of beach and rainforest attractions, plus tropical islands and the unparalleled Great Barrier Reef.
Queensland’s holiday regions and attractions range from theme parks and surf beaches to the Great Barrier Reef, the world’s largest complex of coral reefs and islands. They span the wilderness and adventure travel areas of the state’s north and far north. These awesome regions provide the perfect choices for your holiday accommodation, Wedding or conference event.
Queensland has major cities, a red outback and a glitzy coastal strip – the Gold Coast in the south east. It also has a coast dotted with tropical islands and makes for a perfect Australian holiday. You can book an organised tour or take control yourself with a hire car and explore our great south east region.
Your accommodation choices in Queensland will amaze you. You can have as much luxury as your heart desires or be frugal and camp on a beach and in many places those options are in the same places. Lady Elliot Island is an example of an eco resort where you can snorkel by day and watch the giant turtles lay their eggs by night or their hatchlings begin their life’s journey. you can do this from your beachfront accommodation or stay in an economical “eco tent”.
There are very 5 Star choices like the Sheraton Mirage or Palazzo Versace on the Gold Coast. There are many lifestyle choices to make as well with rejuvenation spas or health retreats in the hinterlands and beachfront apartments where you can spend your days watching the surfers enjoy the endless waves.
Most important: Book directly with the operator. This way your money stays with them and you often get a better rate or added services rather than the big overseas booking sites skimming their profits with big commissions.
