Do you fancy a Queensland mini break?


Embrace the unrivalled energy of the Gold Coast, where beautiful sandy beaches, ancient rainforests, thrilling theme parks, and a vibrant dining and cultural scene come to life in this entertainment playground.

Whether it’s watching the sunrise at Burleigh, fishing at Main Beach, taking in the golden sand at Surfers Paradise, or surfing with the pros at Coolangatta, there’s a spot reserved for you on the spectacular coastline that draws visitors locally and from all over the world.


Only an hour’s drive north of Queensland’s capital you’ll join the laid-back lifestyle of the Sunshine Coast with its plethora of natural delights. Leave your footprints in the 100km stretch of sandy coastline, or take in the sweeping views from the volcanic peaks of the Glass House Mountains.

Beyond the sparkling beaches and lush hinterland are communities that create the true essence of the Sunshine Coast. From the sophisticated seaside village of Noosa, to the urban centre of Maroochydore, the easy-going charm of Caloundra and the natural beauty of the Pumicestone Passage that separates Bribie Island from the Queensland mainland, each seaside spot has its own personality to get to know.

K’Gari (Fraser Island)

Visit Queensland’s Fraser Coast and be forever changed by raw nature.

Why? It’s home to two of Australia’s most famous and visited heritage-listed jewels — the world’s largest sand island and the world’s first whale heritage area.

K’gari has more than a few reasons why this World Heritage-listed place is a natural paradise. Explore unspoilt coastline, soak in the natural spa at Champagne Pools, touch the powder-like sands and crystal-clear fresh waters of Lake McKenzie, and be dwarfed by nature with a walk through the ancient Valley of the Giants.


Byron Bay needs little introduction. The balmy sun-kissed town on the North Coast of NSW is known as much for its bountiful beaches as its rainforest hinterland, creative community and innovative food scene. It was once the favoured domain of hippies and boho seachangers – these locals never left, but have been joined by forward-thinking restaurateurs, designers and celebrities.
