Northern Queensland Holidays

Northern Queensland is the home to some of Australia’s most impressive natural beauty – the postcard-perfect powdery beaches, the dazzling Whitsunday Islands and, of course, the world-famous Great Barrier Reef.

The large towns of Cairns and Port Douglas serve as the gateways to the Reef. Cairns is the larger with a good range of restaurants and a vibrant nightlife. Port Douglas offers a quieter option with a lovely beach to enjoy. The Great Barrier Reef itself offers incredible snorkelling and diving opportunity with schools of multi-coloured tropical fish and all manner of marine life easily visible in the clear water. This is deservedly one of Australia’s truly unmissable experiences and should be a part of any Australia itinerary.

The Whitsundays are a group of 74 gorgeous islands home to some of the clearest waters and finest beaches you’ll find anywhere in the world. Explore the popular Whitehaven Beach and the charming Hamilton Island for a holiday you’ll never forget.
