The Queensland region

Pristine beaches, tropical islands, lush rainforests, vibrant cities and the authentic Australian outback, Queensland is the ultimate holiday destination. Known as Australia’s Sunshine State, Queensland offers an abundance of diverse experiences to create lasting memories.Tropical North Queensland (TNQ) offers the Great Barrier Reef and tropical rainforest experiences, combining adventure and relaxation within some of the greatest environmental wonders of the world.


Cairns attractions rank as some of the most original and exciting in Australia. Golden sunny beaches flanked by pristine rain forest and the Great Barrier Reef make Cairns a region that literally has it all! Friendly locals provide a setting for exploration and fun that very few other places in the world can offer.

The city of Cairns has recently been renovated to enhance its image and provide a relaxing place for tourists and Cairns locals to congregate and have fun. Cairns Esplanade, once a huge grassy park, now features a world-class facility incorporating an outdoor amphitheater, a large sandy swimming lagoon, grassy picnic areas, walking tracks, free public barbecue's, children's playground, shops and restaurants, an environmental interpretation centre and a Great Barrier Reef Cruise departure terminal. But Cairns is only really the hub to the attractions of Far North Queensland.
