Why Queensland?

Life-changing natural wonders, from the Great Barrier Reef to the rainforest

Queensland is home to five magnificent World-Heritage listed wonders: the world’s largest reef – The Great Barrier Reef, the world’s oldest living rainforest – Daintree Rainforest, the world’s largest sand island – K’gari (Fraser Island), one of the most significant fossil sites in the world with some dating back 25 million years – Riversleigh Fossil Mammal Sites, and the most extensive area of sub tropical rainforest in the entire world – the Gondwana Rainforests. Thanks to the warm sub tropical climate, these sights can be explored all year round.
