Situated in Northeastern Australia, Queensland makes for the perfect vacation spot for friends, solo travellers, and young couples. With COVID-19 protocols in place, the state is ready to welcome tourists. Simply put, you are good to go to Queensland.
Beauty of Brisbane
Plan a trip to Brisbane, the bustling cultural capital. When here, embark on River to Bay experiences, climb the iconic Story Bridge, discover the riverside areas aboard CityCat ferries, or explore Eat Street Northshore, one of Brisbane’s hottest food and entertainment destinations. Stay at stunning river-view hotels like Crystalbrook Vincent, W Brisbane, or Emporium Hotel South Bank.
Coastal Wonders at Cairns
For an immersive vacation, head to Cairns, the gateway to the Great Barrier Reef. Home to islands such as Green Island, Fitzroy Island, and Lizard Island, the adventure capital offers experiences like AJ Hackett’s Skypark, Cairns Zoom, Kuranda Skyrail, and Daintree Rainforest, a UNESCO World Heritage-listed rainforest. You can also ride the rapids of Tully River, see the sunrise from a hot air balloon, or go skydiving.
Adventure Awaits at Gold Coast
Head to Gold Coast for its sandy beaches and surfing spots. Take up jetboating, jet-ski safari tours, or go on rides at the theme parks in the region. Climb up to the SkyPoint Observation Deck, and enjoy dinner at the local surf clubs.
