Southern Queensland holidays - Sun-dappled, laidback and fun
Southern Queensland is an eclectic region, offering everything you could possibly think of when it comes to coastal getaways. From lively cities frequented by surfer dudes and trendy travellers to quieter hideaways with unspoilt bays and classic coastal roads perfect for road trips, there’s a quintessential slice of Aussie paradise wherever you go.
Enjoy a vibrant coastal experience
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.
