Queensland is a close-to-home tropical getaway with plenty of sand, surf and theme park thrills to satisfy the whole family. Be wowed by the hyper-colour underwater wonderland of the Great Barrier Reef. Hop a boat to eyeball a passing parade of whales. Camp with dingoes in the stunning, sandy expanse of Fraser Island. And, if you can tear yourself away from the sublime coast, more adventures await inland. Relax in a rainforest paradise or browse the quirky boutiques and market stalls of chilled-out hinterland towns. Queensland is home to an exciting collection of theme parks. Whether you fancy rides and slides that make your heart stop, cuddling koalas or getting up close and personal with other wildlife, or a glimpse behind the scenes of some movie magic, you’ll find something that suits. Just a short hop across the Tasman, this Sunshine State is waiting to indulge.
