Queensland Holiday Destinations.

The Gold Coast, in the southern part of the state, is a Theme Park paradise and the most popular destination for foreign visitors. A great place to stay short term if you have a young family. Those foreign visitors to the Gold Coast generally have the Great Barrier Reef on their itenary and maybe a short visit to the Queensland Outback. The Whitsundays and Cairns will satisfy your Barrier Reef requirements and both destinations have added features. Cairns is close to Port Douglas and The Daintree Rainforest and The Whitsundays have their beautiful Islands. The closest Outback experience from the Pacific Highway is a 2 hour drive to Charters Towers from Townsville. This is a great City with numerous historical buildings and relics from the past.
Over 2,000 klms apart, The Gold Coast and Cairns are the major outposts on the Queensland Coastline but there are numerous destinations in between and all have their own distinguishable features.
Brisbane the Capital, has a wealth of historical buildings and a host of attractions including The Koala Sanctuary, Southbank,The Queen Street Mall,The Moreton Bay Islands and China Town. Toowoomba lies 130 klms West of Brisbane on The Great Dividing Range and is the second largest inland City in Australia. Famous for its Carnival of Flowers held every September and home of The Australian Gospel Music Festival held at Easter. The City has a Military Museum and a Pioneer Village.
The Sunshine Coast, stretching from Caloundra in the South, to Noosa Heads in the North has a wealth of interesting locations to visit. The Hinterland is dotted with small towns with multitudes of antique shops and The Glass House Mountains as a magnificent backdrop. The Sunshine Coast is also home of The Australia Zoo, Underwater World and the famous Ettamogah Pub.
Further North, Hervey Bay is the whale watching centre of Queensland, and on into The Bundaberg Region that is famous for its Rum Distillery, Mon Repos Beach where the Turtle Rookeries abound in the season between November and March and the small town of 1770 where Captain Cook made his first stop on his way North on his ship The Endeavour.
Rockhampton sits on The Tropic of Capricorn and is the Beef Capital of Australia. Plenty of historical architecture in the City and The Board Walk has nice views towards the city. The Dreamtime Cultural Centre is the largest of its kind in Australia. The Capricorn Caves are just North of the City.
Mackay is the Sugar Capital and has a Heritage Walk in the City Centre. Several nice sandy beaches close to the City and The Eungella National Park is home to The Broken River where visitors can see the famous Duck Billed Platypus.
Between The Whitsundays and Cairns, Townsville is Queenslands largest Tropical City and home to The HQ. of The Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority. The Reef Headquarters has a tropical aquarium with a walk through viewing tunnel. Castle town Shopping World is the second largest retail centre in Australia. The Strand is a magnificent area with Tropical Parks, Rockpools, a water park and BBQ areas. Looking out from the shoreline, Magnetic Island stands shimmering in the tropical sunlight.
So many destinations to choose from and yet many more abound in this magnificent State of Queensland.

Oprah Winfrey

met Elvis the koala at The Hamilton Island Zoo on Wednesday 8th December 2010. The Queen of Talkshows said she would be telling everyone the Whitsundays is better than any description in a book or a magazine and declared "Oh my God its so Beautiful". Tourism CEO Peter O'Reilly said the impact on The Whitsundays, when Oprah's shows are aired in the new year will be an enormous boost as viewings throughout the world will be in the hundreds of millions.
Oprah drove around the island in her own buggy and later hosted a party on Whitehaven Beach on Whitsunday Island with a number of invited guests.
She later retired to spend the night in the exclusive private Beach House Accommodation at The Qualia Resort on Hamilton Island.

Accommodation is in two types. The main Room has a luxurious king size bed (minimum 2 people) ideal for couples or honeymooners and the other has a bunk style quad for friends, family or other guests. Both rooms feature bright interior decor reflecting the Great Barrier Reef and are air-conditioned with large private ensuites. Day visitors depart the reef at 2-30pm and the new visitors arrive at 10-30am the next day, so the time in between is exclusive to Reefsleep guests and their host for the night.
