Queensland is Calling
Ancient rainforests, mesmerising reefs and sweeping beaches are calling. It's time to answer and say hello to unforgettable memories and endless adventures.
First-time and return visitors to Queensland alike will never want for thrilling experiences, incredible things to do and moments to turn into memories. Its dazzling reefscapes and sweeping shores come as no surprise, but look beyond the coastline and you will find rich Indigenous culture, a farm-to-table dining scene, rugged outback and verdant hinterland ready to welcome you.
Travellers can design their own adventure in Queensland. Perhaps you're after days of family fun on Hamilton Island or exploring the rocky landscapes of Magnetic Island. Or you might charter your own vessel through the dreamy Whitsundays to Whitehaven Beach, where seven kilometres of brilliant white silica sand and shallow turquoise waters dazzle; a picture-perfect backdrop for keen photographers.
Looking for an outback adventure or the thrill of the untamed wilderness? It’s all on offer here, from the mining city of Mount Isa – nestled amid the dusty red Selwyn Ranges – to Hughenden, with its volcanic landscapes and extensive fossil collection. Or hike up the altitude into the lush mountains for camping, fishing and tranquil picnic spots. Rich earth and lush rainforest exist in perfect harmony here.
Even Brisbane, the state’s cosmopolitan capital, takes its cues from nature. Take a bite out of the culinary wonderland that is Howard Smith Wharves, soak up arts and culture at GOMA, and use the city as a gateway to scenic hinterland or a tropical island paradise. Just to the north on the Sunshine Coast, relax and unwind with a few days ambling Noosa’s upmarket boutiques, national park and local markets.
Take things at your pace along the southern shores of Kirra Beach, where quieter coastlines and world-class surf await, or venture into the hinterland for wholesome activities and a luxe stay.
Whether you’re seeking days in the sun, surf or hinterland — pack your sense of adventure and follow the call to Queensland.
