WELCOME TO

Tropical North Queensland


The excitement of new discoveries with the enchantment of exotic experiences. The only place where two World Heritage-listed areas are side by side, you can dive the depths of the Great Barrier Reef or soar above the world’s oldest tropical rainforest. Spectacular tropical landscapes are matched with superior natural encounters where you can step out of your comfort zone, or retreat to indulge in modern luxuries. Test your nerves at rafting rainforest rivers, be at one with nature in the vast outback, parachute 20,000 feet onto an unspoilt beach, find your inner artist learning Aboriginal handicrafts, taste ocean-fresh seafood or lose yourself in an island daydream.
