When it comes to Australia, where else but Queensland?


For an Australian holiday of sprawling beaches, lush rainforests and laid-back road trips, Queensland is where you need to be. The second largest state in Australia (and roughly seven times the size of the UK), covers everything from the tropical islands of the Whitsundays to the age-old Daintree Rainforest, giving you ancient indigenous cultures, modern cities and over 4,000 miles of coastline to choose from.

It’s also where you’ll find the famed Great Barrier Reef, one of the seven natural wonders of the world and, according to Sir David Attenborough in his latest BBC series, “the most magical place on earth”. To see this giant living structure for yourself, a number of our Australia holiday itineraries feature the reef, where your experience can be tailor-made to include any number of activities from snorkelling to a seaplane flight, glass bottom boat ride or guided scuba dive.

It's in our heritage; in 1981 we opened our first Flight Centre store in Sydney. And while we've grown to over 17,000 stores around the world, travel to Australia has – and always will be – embedded in our culture. This unrivalled passion means we not only have one of the widest choice of tailor-made Australia holidays and flights in the UK, but all of our people are Aussie Experts, having either lived in or visited Australia.
