Situated in Australia’s northeast corner, Queensland is Australia’s second largest and third most populous state.

With vibrant cities, sublime coastline, and stunning natural attractions, Queensland is the ideal place for backpackers and youth travellers, whether you’re on an Australian working holiday or are simply just spending a few weeks travelling through Australia.

Natural beauty abounds in the sunshine state, which enjoys nearly 300 days of sunny weather.

If you’re looking for adventure you’ll find it here; opportunities are ample for white water rafting, hiking, diving, and horseback riding.

Queensland boasts more tours accredited under the national eco certification scheme than any other Australian state so you can fully enjoy nature without damaging it

The Great Barrier Reef is one of Queensland main attractions.

One of the Seven Wonders of the Natural World, Australia’s Great Barrier Reef, this vast array of coral stretches is home to a stunning amount of wild marine life.

It is longer than the Great Wall of China and is the only living thing that can be seen from space.

It’s the perfect spot for diving, snorkelling, swimming, and kayaking.

 

Life begins at the end of your comfort zone….

 

Additional Queensland natural highlights include the Daintree Rainforest and the Boodjamulla (Lawn Hill) National Park. A Wet Tropics World Heritage Site, the Daintree Rainforest boasts lush, green jungle scenery and incredible amount of biodiversity.

It is home to mangrove forest habitats and eucalypt woodlands. The Boodjamulla (Lawn Hill) National Park is also not to be missed.

This place is an archeologist’s paradise; a pre-historic landscape dotted by ancient settlements, cave paintings, and 25 million year old fossils.

And if you just want to lounge around on the beach you will want to head to the sunshine coast. These beaches are the perfect spot for a leisurely swim or an excellent surf session.

If you’re looking for urban vibrancy you will find it in the beautiful Brisbane, a vibrant, cosmopolitan city home to 2.2 million.
