Queensland Tours, Travel & Activities

Time and place tick into a languid dimension when you cross the Queensland border. Touted as Australia's Sunshine State, Queensland is allegedly blessed with 300 days of sunshine a year, and outside the deluge of the wet season, the sky seems unceasingly awash with an amber glow.

Brisbane Tours, Travel & Activities

Brisbane has shucked its reputation as a backwater and emerged as one of the country's most progressive centers. It has several interesting districts, a good street cafe scene, a great riverside park, a busy cultural calendar and a thriving nightlife. Known locally as Bris Vegas, the city is renowned for its sun and the brash, glitzy hordes that follow it, but it's also a thriving arts capital, with dozens of theatres, cinemas, concert halls, galleries and museums …

• Cairns & the Tropical North

Cairns Tours, Travel & Activities

In addition to the unspoiled islands and luxury resorts of the Great Barrier Reef, Cairns is relatively close, for widespread Australia, to some uniquely Australian attractions. About 100 miles to the north, Daintree Rainforest Park is full of indigenous species of marsupials, bats, birds, frogs and more. A half-hour from the city, an antique railway takes you through the lush mountains of the Atherton Tableland, and just an hour's drive away the Outback begins …

• Gold Coast

Gold Coast Tours, Travel & Activities

The Gold Coast's bright neon lights bring the glitz and glam of Miami and Las Vegas to Australia.

Sand, surf and nightlife sure have their appeal, but there's more to the Gold Coast than the beach. The Hinterland is a densely forested region home to two of Queensland's best national parks …

Fraser Island Tours, Travel & Activities

It is said that all the sand from the eastern coast of Australia eventually ends up at Fraser Island, a gigantic sandbar measuring 74 miles by 9 miles (120km by 15km) and created by thousands of years of along-shore drift. Seen from the coast this beautiful enigma appears to be too lush to be the world's biggest sand island, but the island's diverse ecology is one of the many wonders of the place …

Palm Cove Tours, Travel & Activities

Since the mid-1980s, Palm Cove has developed from a sleepy, little beach community into a wannabe-chic resort town, and still manages to be a pretty spot despite all the development. The beach has a stinger net in summer, plenty of shady melaleuca trees, and views of the small, privately owned Double Island. Palm Cove's jetty is regarded by local anglers as the area's best fishing spot and is a great place for a stroll …

» Port Douglas

Port Douglas Tours, Travel & Activities

Port Douglas certainly outclasses Cairns in the hip stakes. Its a genuine reef resort with a long stretch of beach backed by palm trees, and an atmosphere far different from its southern rival Cairns. Its streets are lined with expensive eateries and clothes shops, and exclusive resorts. Despite its development and upmarket allegiances, the town has a relaxed village feel about it, especially on the weekend when the down-at-heel beer gardens of its pubs fill up with drinkers and its outdoor Sunday markets take over Anzac Park …
