Queensland is known for its Great Barrier Reef, tropical islands, rainforest, The Gold Coast and the state that attracts many Australian visitors. For those who like to travel off road, Fraser Island, Moreton Island and Stradbroke Island are great destinations. Lots of national parks to get away from it all. Perfect beaches all along the coast line and plenty of great campsites in the national parks. Off the coast at Arlie Beach are the famous Whitsunday Islands, a must visit, if you are looking for some luxury or even better like to hire a boat to explore the area yourself. Cape York just North of Cairns, not just for off road adventures but also offers great remote beaches, Aboriginal rock art and the ability to visit Australia’s most northern point just a few kilometres away from Papua New Guinea. The Gulf Country, Lawn Hill National Park and the area around Birdsville are classified as the Queensland outback. If you happen to be near Birdsville in September don’t forget to visit the Birdsville races.
