Our Favourite Coastal Journeys

One of the world’s most remarkable natural wonders, the Great Barrier Reef almost spans the entire length of Queensland's coast. Home to countless species of marine wildlife, stunning natural scenery and world-class activities, the Great Barrier Reef is a national treasure that everyone should experience first-hand. But despite being undeniably beautiful, it's not all Queensland has to offer. 

Have a go at surfing along the Gold Coast, cruising the Whitsundays, sipping coffee on the laid-back streets of Brisbane, or even discovering Aboriginal culture at Tjapukai – from which you can also visit the rainforest village of Kuranda. With so much to do along the Queensland coast, it can be hard to know where to begin. That's where Flight Centre comes in.

Queensland is a big place. Let us help you tackle it

With a nickname like ‘The Sunshine State’, you know you’re in for a good time with a Queensland holiday. Located in the north-east corner of Australia, the state is beloved by locals and tourists alike for its pristine coastline, tropical rainforests, burgeoning cities, charming towns, Indigenous culture and colourful locals.

As Australia’s second largest state (seven times the size of the UK) it can be difficult to know where to start your holiday in Queensland. The most popular entry point is Brisbane, Queensland’s growing capital and the perfect starting point for a road trip along Australia's Nature Coast to see dolphins and whales. The other is the tourist town of Cairns, idyllically located between the Great Barrier Reef and the Daintree National Park, home to the world’s oldest surviving rainforest.
