Queensland is located on the north-eastern region of
New South Wales and the
Northern Territory, as well as a bit of
South Australia. Take a holiday in Queensland at any time of the year and you’ll discover why it is often affectionately nicknamed the ‘Sunshine State of Australia.’ Queensland is also famous for the various World Heritage Sites situated within its borders, such as the Great Barrier Reef and the Daintree National Park.
Brisbane is the capital of Queensland and is the third largest city in Australia. With excellent weather year-round, friendly and fun-loving locals, a wide selection of restaurants, bars and shops, and easy access for day trips, Brisbane has much to offer. Getting around Brisbane is best with a car hire, especially if you want to travel cheaply or if you want to take day trips out to the highly popular Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast regions. Booking a car hire online in advance is recommended – check out Direct Flights for the cheapest car hire rates in Brisbane.
The Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast regions of Queensland are lined with long strips of bright blue water bordered by golden sand. The Gold Coast is very popular with travelling families because of the many theme parks situated in the area, as well as with backpackers and young travellers, who flock to the beach town of Surfers Paradise. One of the main attractions in the Sunshine Coast is the Australia Zoo, owned and maintained by the family of the late Steve Irwin. The Sunshine Coast is also home to the city of Noosa, where you can take a scenic sunset cruise down the Noose River to the Everglades.
Cairns is another popular city in Queensland, and is the gateway to one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World, the Great Barrier Reef. Whether you choose to go snorkelling or scuba diving, you will be amazed at the exotic colours of the marine wildlife found in the Reef.
