Great Barrier Reef

Highly recommended
Stretching for over 2,000km/1,200mi down the seaboard of Queensland, the Great Barrier Reef unfolds to reveal magnificent coral, abundant marine life from shoals of clown fish to humpback whales and idyllic islands. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, it can be discovered on foot, by boat and by air. Surrounded by the lush rainforests of the Great Dividing Range and the turquoise lagoon water of the Great Barrier, Cairns is the main gateway to this natural treasure trove.

Fraser Island, sand and adventure XXL

Considered to be the largest sand island in the world, this island is unlike any other place on earth. Fraser Island, with its endless sandy beaches, coastal rivers, fishing spots, inland lake and dingo population is truly out of this world and while package tours can mar its image, this is easily remedied by renting a 4WD and writing your own adventure !
