All the clichés are here: swaying palms, powdery sand and unspoilt beauty
Whether you opt for a slow pace or a heart-pumping ride, this stunning region is unforgettable.
Nature's bounty is on show up north from the savannah grasslands and red sands of the outback to the turquoise waters and swaying palm fronds of the isles that dot the Pacific Ocean. The Great Barrier Reef is the world's largest living organism and home of thousands of colourful marine life and coral formations. Further north, the Daintree is the world's oldest surviving rainforest with plant species that existed millions of years ago and is teeming with vibrant wildlife.
Head even further north by 4WD to the wilderness of Cape York Peninsula to witness untouched scenery, wild crocodiles, sacred Aboriginal sites and reach the northernmost tip of Australia. It's an adventure sure to get your pulse racing. For a taste of the Queensland outback, head to the Gulf Savannah and outback country for gold rush, pioneer and Aboriginal culture heritage spots or take a 4WD to Boodjamulla (Lawn Hill) National Park to view sandstone escarpments and water gorges.
