Queensland, Australia

The sunniest state in Australia

Queensland is nature's playground, from its surf beaches to tropical rainforests, wildlife encounters and of course the iconic Great Barrier Reef. Queensland's subtropical capital Brisbane, the vibrant Gold Coast, Cairns - the gateway to the Great Barrier Reef and the 74 islands of The Whitsundays are just a few of Queensland's year-round destinations which give visitors a taste of quintessential Aussie lifestyle. Start by experiencing the best Brisbane city has to offer in food, wine, arts, entertainment, shopping, and sporting events. For a quieter escape, head into the surrounding hinterland and wake up to the beauty of World Heritage Listed rainforests and relaxing spa retreats. Cairns is Queensland's adventure capital and gateway to the Great Barrier Reef and Daintree Rainforest where you can snorkel, dive, go whitewater rafting, hot air ballooning and learn about Queensland's ancient indigenous culture from an Aboriginal guide. For a relaxing island break, exploring secluded beaches, or island-hopping by sailboat, the Whitsundays is the perfect escape.
