Tropical North Queensland Holidays
The Great Barrier Reef
The Great Barrier Reef is one of the seven natural wonders of the world. Longer than the Great Wall of China and visible from space, it's one of our favourite nature and wildlife destinations in Australia.
Visit the reef from Cairns which is one of the major coastal gateways to the reef. It's a breeding area for humpback whales and is also home to a few endangered species including the large Green Sea Turtle and the Dugong (Sea Cow).
Sunshine Coast Holidays
Planning a holiday to the Sunshine Coast? Why not take a tour to Fraser Island? The island is surrounded by beautiful white beaches, a lush rainforest and is filled with riveting wildlife. It's also the world’s largest sand island and has a fascinating Aboriginal and pioneering history.
Visit Rainbow Gorge and see its coloured sand formations or explore over 100 freshwater lakes. Keep your eyes peeled for a variety of wildlife including kangaroos, wallabies, possums, dingos’ or over 350 species of birds.
Only a short flight or ferry ride from Adelaide, Kangaroo Island boasts stunning landscapes and wildlife to match. Take a tour around the island and see the spectacular and diverse coastline filled with sea life - it's home to the third largest colony of Australian sea lions in the world.
