The Green Lamington



Nature lovers should definitely visit the Lamington National Park. The rich subtropical forests of the park seem to hide a waterfall wherever you look. The clean air, deep green vegetation and richness of animal life make the park a wonderful hiking location.

The Old Daintree



Daintree is an ancient rainforest – the biggest one in Australia. The wildlife is amazing – the tropical flora provides refuge to huge butterfly, bat, reptile, marsupial and frog populations. Situated on the coast, the forest is fringed by gorgeous white sandy beaches. Visitors to Daintree can either stay in Cairns, or rent authentic eco-lodges.

The Peaks of Tamborine



Tamborine Mountain is part of the Scenic Rim area. The emerald locality was born from the lava of a volcanic eruption millions of years ago. The locals grow fruit in the rich red soil. The area is home to many interesting and quaint events and festivals. It’s a great place to buy delicious local produce and colorful crafts.

The Amazing Beaches



Queensland is home to some of the most beautiful beaches in Australia. Imagine the perfect postcard: the clear turquoise waters and fine white sand. That’s Queensland. Grab your Natural Necessity surfing gear, and hit the waves – be it alone if you are an experienced surfer, or with an instructor, if you are a newbie. Or, if Australia’s favorite pastime is not your thing, enjoy swimming, diving, snorkeling, parasailing, jet boating, and just sipping a drink under a parasol and relaxing.

The Natural Wonder - Great Barrier Reef



This World Heritage listed location is actually the largest living structure on the planet, and is even visible from space. The reef stretches around 1400 kilometers, from the northernmost tip of the state almost down to Brisbane. The biodiversity of the ecosystem is unparalleled - with over 1500 species of fish, 400 kinds of coral and 200 bird species. And let’s not forget the turtles, giant clams, and saltwater crocodiles. The Great Barrier Reef is a dream come true for every snorkeler. And for those brave enough to try it – there is another way to experience the natural wonder: from the air! Gather the courage to try skydiving over the area – the view will take your breath away.

The Awe-Inspiring Hervey Bay



Seeing whales in the wild is an experience that awakens an incomparable sense of awe and freedom. The city of Hervey Bay, a 3-hour-drive north from Brisbane, is Australia’s prime whale watching location. Humpbacks can be spotted here each year from July to November, as they bring their calves to the quiet and safe waters of the bay.

The White Whitsunday Islands



Whitsunday Islands are a breathtaking archipelago consisting of over 70 islands. Most of them have national park status, and a few offer premium tourist resorts. While you’re there, catch a boat to the eponymous Whitsunday Island, and witness firsthand the world-famous Whitehaven Beach. The 7 km long white beach on the uninhabited island consistently tops the lists of world’s best, cleanest and most eco-friendly beaches.


Fraser Island



The largest sand dune island in the world is located 250 km north of Brisbane. The World Heritage listed natural wonder is unique for the extraordinary diversity of its plant and animal life, and the fact that these lush tropical forests are thriving on sand. Today it’s very popular among tourists.
