Queensland Holidays: An Overview

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.

Miranda and Katie are here to help give you the inside track.

Original Highlight

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.
