Queensland

Latest deals on flights, hotels, activities and more

Known as the Sunshine State, Queensland occupies Australia’s north-east. From the inland deserts to the island reefs, the state has a huge variety of climates, landscapes and industries. Some of Queensland’s best-known destinations include the Great Barrier Reef, the Daintree Rainforest, the Gold Coast, the Sunshine Coast and the Whitsundays. The cosmopolitan delights of Brisbane and the Gold Coast stand in bold contrast to the rough-and-tumble joys of the outback. The Great Barrier Reef’s natural wealth is rivalled by that of the Daintree Rainforest. And the lure of adventure is matched by the lure of beachside resorts.

Fast facts about Queensland

Where is it? Queensland occupies the north-east of Australia and is bordered by the Northern Territory, New South Wales and South Australia.

How do I get there? Flights to Brisbane and the Gold Coast, as well as regional airports such as Cairns, Hamilton Island and Townsville, are available from every Australian city and some regional locations. The flight takes between 1-and-a-half and 5 hours. Airlines include Qantas, Jetstar, Virgin, Tigerair, Emirates and Singapore Airlines.

When should I go? Queensland is a huge state and the climate varies from tropical to temperate. The summer can be extremely hot, while the winter (or dry season) is generally mild. Visit from June to September for the whale migration and mild weather, or wait until October for warmer temperatures, longer days and fewer crowds.

What should I do? Hike through rainforests, bushland, tablelands and wetlands, visit the Gold Coast’s theme parks, experience the Great Barrier Reef, take a flight to the Whitsundays, pick your own mangoes, go to a rodeo, relax on the beaches of the Sunshine Coast, and sleep under the stars in the Simpson Desert.
