Queensland, Australia

About as diverse a landscape as you can get, the Sunshine State has plenty to fall in love with. Sun-soaked islands, rugged bushland, picture-perfect beaches, stunning hinterland, lush rainforest and exciting cities – it’s all here.

One of Queensland’s most cherished attractions, the Great Barrier Reef, is mandatory viewing. Measuring over 2,000 kilometres and rich with biodiversity, it’s classified as one of the world’s seven natural wonders for a reason. There’s also the world’s oldest rainforest (the Daintree Rainforest). Brisbane is fantastic for culture, food and tipples; for fresh seafood by the water, visit Port Douglas and beach-chic Noosa; or head to Queensland’s hinterland regions for perfectly-seared wagyu steak with a glass of red, straight from the restaurant’s vineyard.
