Tucked up in the north east corner of Australia, Queensland is home to sprawling cities, virtually year-round sunshine, divine beaches and spectacular natural beauty. Brisbane is the bustling state capital and one of the fastest growing cities in Australia – in fact, more Australian’s move here every year than anywhere else in the country.
Just south of Brisbane, the brash and glamorous Gold Coast lives up to its name with a colourful trio of buttery beaches, dazzling sunshine and the ubiquitous bronze skin. To the south of the state capital, the Sunshine Coast is very different in terms of ethos, if not aesthetics – life here is tranquil and relaxing.
Just off the coast, the gorgeous Fraser Island tempts travellers with its promises of deserted sands and a fantastic array of fauna and flora, giving you the chance to enjoy what could be Australia's most enchanting natural paradise.
In Brisbane & Southern Queensland
One of Australia's largest and most interesting cities. Brisbane is coming into its own with a fantastic cultural scene, superb cuisine from across the world and a great range of attractions to visit.
Home to some of Australia's finest beaches including the famous Surfers' Paradise, Gold Coast is a great stop for families or anyone looking for a great time on fine white sand.
Charming coastal towns and pristine white sand beaches can be found all the way along the sunshine coast - a fantastic destination for anyone looking for a quieter side of Australia.
