Queensland is a state in the north-eastern region of Australia. This magnificent area offers an abundance of places to visit, warm, tropical weather and one of the world's seven natural wonders, the Great Barrier Reef.
Due to its mild, tropical climate, any time of year would be ideal to plan your Queensland holidays. Across the state, temperatures rarely drop below 15 degrees Celcius and the weather is generally humid. To catch the hottest months, travel between November and March, with the caution that temperatures can reach a scorching 35-40 degrees Celcius in mid-summer. Fly in to Brisbane International Airport, located just north of the state's capital Brisbane. From there you can directly proceed to your destination by train, bus or car.
The capital city of Brisbane is a great place to begin your Queensland holidays. This bustling city is built around the Brisbane river and is a gateway to the sunshine coast. With a great reputation for nightlife and dining out, Brisbane's diverse selection of restaurants offer some of the best seafood, tropical fruits and local produce in the country. A four-hour drive north is Bundaberg, the heart of Queensland's sugar country. Explore pristine beaches, rare local wildlife and coral islands on the cusp of the Great Barrier Reef.
Queensland's tropical north is a vast region of rare, natural beauty. The cities of Cairns and Port Douglas offer spectacular scenery and are on the self-drive routes of the Great Tropical Drive. At the reef you will be spoilt for choice of activities such as snorkeling, sea-plane flights, glass-bottom boat rides or simply admiring the coral. On the north-east coast you will find the extraordinary Daintree Rainforest, home to many ancient plants and unique species of wildlife.
