Out and about in
Queensland

Tropical rainforest, the biggest coral reef in the world, countless palm-lined beaches and an intriguing outback are the highlights of a Queensland camping trip. There are few other states where the sun comes out as often, so if you’re a fair weather camper – and can handle the heat – Queensland is the place to be. Cruise through sleepy coastal hamlets, bustling metropolises and remote outposts, and you’ll be greeted with laidback and hospitable locals lucky enough to call the Sunshine State their home. 

So when’s the best time to go? While Queensland struggles to get cold, it does get stormy in the Wet Tropics during summer. If you’re heading north of the Tropic of Capricorn, shoulder seasons outside school holidays are your best bet for avoiding humidity, and the crowds. If you’re into bushwalking or generally being active outdoors, you’ll want to avoid going inland in the height of summer, but should also be prepared for the outback’s chill factor in winter.

Queensland is a whopper in terms of size, but when it comes to road trips, there’s something for everyone –  from blissful coastal drives that take only a few hours, such as the beautiful trip from Cairns to Cape Tribulation, to legendary 4X4 exploration. The famous track to Cape York, for example, is a must-drive for many keen off-roaders.

For family fun, the Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast regions are always winners, with plenty of amusement parks, Australia Zoo, safe, patrolled beaches and phenomenal caravan parks  to keep the kids grinning. Queensland’s islands also make unforgettable holiday destinations. Experience terrific sand driving and camping adventures on Fraser Island and Moreton Island. Relax in the tropical paradise of the  Whitsundays, or explore the pristine beach coves on Magnetic Island.    

It’s no secret the highlights of a trip to Queensland are snorkelling the Great Barrier Reef and wandering beneath the lush canopy of the Daintree – two of the world’s most important natural wonders. If you’re into natural history, outback Queensland is full of unsung surprises, including incredible dinosaur fossils and archaeological sites, artesian pools, fossicking reserves and stunning gorges including Lawn Hill and Carnarvon.

Lush banana plantations, fields of sugarcane and roadside stalls selling locally grown produce are truly characteristic of a Queensland roadie. Whether you’re relaxing at your beachside campsite or burning energy on an outdoor adventure, there’s nothing sweeter than fuelling up on mangoes and pineapples for your next excursion.
