Queensland is a natural wonderland like no other.
Wetlands, rainforests, savannas, tropical’s, and desserts each provide a special and unforgettable experience.
Dotted all through the states, amazing landscapes are sparkling cities, like the Brisbane capital city and idyllic coastal hamlets and country town.
Here are the best things to do in Queensland:
Great Barrier Reef
It is the world’s biggest living structure, comprised of more than three-thousand coral reefs, 300 coral cays, and 600 islands, and it is home to 1000s of tropical fish species and dolphins, sharks, turtles, dugongs, and more.
Needless to say, you could surf, swim, snorkel, scuba, and sail for months and still not view everything this remarkable part of the planet has to offer.
Kuranda Scenic Railway
The Kuranda town itself is folksy and charming, but its scenic railway provides a journey you will bear in mind for the rest of your life.
You can take a steam train but winds via the rainforest and along the gorge, or glide over the treetops in the cable vehicle.
It is the world’s biggest sand island and one of the top inland escape in the country.
Whether you camp or stay in a luxury eco-resort, you will enjoy the ancient rainforests, sandstone cliffs, freshwater lakes, rock pools, and seventy-five-mile beach.
Mount Hypipamme crater
Bordered by lush tropical rainforest, the Mount Hypipamee crater is a breathtaking 70m wide, 140m deep crater.
The lush green of the waterweed that sits on the crater top lake offers an amazing contrast to the stark grey granite walls.
Chillagoe-Mungana Caves National Park
There are more than five-hundred limestone caves to explore in this national park.
While they are all amazing, ensure you visit the caves at Wullumba and Mungana to experience the ancient Aboriginal rock art painted on the cave wall.
