From Cairns in the north to Brisbane in the south, along the Sunshine and Gold Coasts, through the world’s oldest living rainforest and past the magnificent natural wonder that is the Great Barrier Reef, Queensland is a diverse Australian territory to discover.
North Queensland is home to two of Australia’s most famous and magnificent natural wonders; the stunning coral Great Barrier Reef with its incredible marine wildlife and the lush, tropical rainforests rich in verdant plants and ancient species.
When it comes to beaches, the diversity of this stretch of Australian coast offers sands to marvel at. There are the golden sands of Surfers Paradise which offer a perfect base for families; or for a romantic honeymoon, the pristine white beaches of the Whitsunday Islands include the Guinness Book of World Records-breaking Whitehaven Beach; or you can even sunbathe next to the blue waters of Fraser Island’s amazing freshwater Lake McKenzie on your adventure to this unique isle.
And for when you’re all beached out, the rum factory in Bundaberg, the gourmet restaurants of Noosa, Daintree’s astonishing rainforests and the stunning botanic gardens of Brisbane await in this east Australian province of wonders!
Combine your trip with a stop in Dubai en route to Australia for a luxurious twin-destination holiday of a lifetime. The tropical northern half of Australia is best visited in its dry season of May to October. Temperatures don’t fall throughout the year, so whenever you visit it will be hot, however rainfall is at its most during the months of December to March.
