Awe inspiring marine wildlife and stretches of pristine rainforest

The northern reaches of Queensland are incredible sites for those who enjoy vast wilderness. The area plays host to over an incredible 36 national parks and contains three World Heritage Sites within its borders, namely the Wet Tropics of Queensland, Riversleigh fossil site and, most famously of all, the Great Barrier Reef.

Considered one of the great natural wonders of the world, the Great Barrier Reef is the biggest coral reef system on the planet. Superlatives fail to capture its immensity and beauty, an environment that fosters incredible biodiversity, including 30 species of cetaceans, more than 1500 types of fish and the graceful dugong, strung out across 2300km (1400 miles). Explore this underwater marvel with unmatched snorkelling, diving and wildlife watching boat trips. There are also hundreds of islands and beaches to discover.

Another popular destination is nearby Cairns, a great spot from which to begin an adventure into the tropical jungles of northern Queensland. With great stretches of eucalyptus savannahs and its remote, barely disturbed environment, the Cape York Peninsula is the northernmost point of Australia. Rivers, creeks and streams bubble through mostly flat territory with mangrove swamps, rainforests and amazing, rough trails for real explorers. The town of Laura also harbours some of the oldest rock paintings from the Aboriginal peoples.

The largest living organism on the planet, viewable from space and spanning over 2,300km of vibrant coral and exquisite marine life. Journey out to Lizard Island, situated right in the heart of the Great Barrier Reef and walk directly out of your private tropical paradise, onto white sandy beaches and out to the crystal-clear waters of the Reef itself. Explore the 74 islands of the Whitsundays, situated at the southern point of the Great Barrier Reef and relax on the pure white, silica sand of Whitehaven Beach, ranked as Australia’s No.1 beach and commonly ranked in the Top 10 best beaches in the world.
