The best way to appreciate the immensity of the Great Barrier Reef is on an evening heli-tour with a stop for sundowners on deserted Whitehaven beach.
Miranda, Original Traveller
Queenslanders will tell you that their state is the best of Australia all rolled into one. This is the home of some of the world's most treasured natural wonders, such as the Great Barrier Reef and the ancient Daintree Rainforest, and remains one of Original Travel's favourite places for an Australian holiday. Within this state is the channel country, the savannah country, Cape York, the Great Dividing Range and the Gulf country.

Luxury Holidays to Queensland: The Detail
Southern Queensland is home to the Gold Coast, renowned for its action-packed theme parks, wildlife sanctuaries, championship golf courses and the sophistication of Main Beach.
Heading north are The Whitsundays - 74 incredibly beautiful tropical islands and a fabulous place for boating holidays. Behind all this is the vast Outback, a landscape which seems endless and where every town has a story to tell. There are dinosaur footprints, wildflowers, ancient Aboriginal rock art sites and characters to share a beer with. A luxury holiday to Far Northern Queensland offers perhaps the epitome of 'the best of Oz' boast.
We'll tailor make your luxury holiday to Queensland to your specific requirements; we can organise trips into tropical rainforests and to the underwater treasure trove of the Great Barrier Reef. Here you can take a walk with an Aboriginal guide or enjoy a private helicopter safari around the Cape York Peninsula at the very northern tip of Australia.
