Queensland is the gateway to loads of landmarks and natural attractions, not the least of which is the Great Barrier Reef. Attracting visitors from around the world, this colourful underwater expanse covers roughly the same square kilometres as Germany and is full of everything from turtles to tangerine-coloured clownfish. Back on solid ground, QLD also has more than 1,000 national parks, an abundance of caves in the Capricorn Region, and the cultural hub of Brisbane.
When to Visit
The best time for you to visit Queensland depends a bit on what you plan to do on your holiday. Divers will find April through October most agreeable to their pastime; water visibility is best in the winter and spring. This is also the right time to visit Queensland if you’re keen to miss monsoon season, which falls from November to April. The high season falls in the winter, between June and August. The temperature hovers around 22 degrees C, and the humidity of summer is nowhere to be found. Remember: Queensland accommodation fill up fast in the high season, so book early.
What to See and Do
Queensland is home to no fewer than five UNESCO World Heritage Sites, including the Great Barrier Reef, Frasier Island, and the Gondwana Rainforests. Once you’ve had your dose of the great outdoors, cities like Brisbane and Cairns offer an abundance of theatre and fine cuisine. Feeling brave? Embark upon the Story Bridge Climb just outside Brisbane for the chance to see a panoramic view of QLD. When you don’t want to be confined to one city, Queensland car rentals let you unleash the potential of your holiday and explore hidden corners of the state.
