Ancient rainforests, vast rugged mountains and pristine beaches are what you look forward to finding in Queensland’s national parks and World Heritage listed areas. Less expected are the vast sand dunes of Moreton Island, and the extraordinary Aboriginal rock art of Central Queensland.
From the crests of mountains you’ll be stunned by 360 degree views, and from the depths of gorges you’ll marvel at the sandstone cliffs soaring high above.

In Townsville you can marvel at spectacular waterfalls. On the Sunshine Coast and Mackay take in the views as you meander along crystal-clear creeks and mountain ridges. And on the beautiful Whitsundays trek through untouched rainforests and beaches on one of numerous uninhabited islands.

Need more proof? Queensland is home to 5 of Australia’s 16 World Heritage listed areas.

In the Outback you can uncover your own dinosaur fossil at the Riversleigh Fossil site. In Tropical North Queensland are the fragile Wet Tropics and world-famous Great Barrier Reef. On the Fraser Coast, Fraser Island is one of the most unique sand islands on the planet. And on the Gold Coast you’ll find the ancient Gondwana Rainforests of Australia, home to spectacular mountain rainforest and 2000 year old arctic beech trees.
