5 Must-Visit Destinations in Queensland

Queensland, without a doubt is Australia’s hottest travel destination. Every traveler that visits the country will not leave without stepping a foot in Queensland, so here are some of the must visit places for you in this state:

Palm Cove

A cute little beach paradise that is tucked away between Cairns and Port Douglas- Palm Cove is the perfect place for catching some chill vibes. There is a huge jetty for fishing for those who just want to kick back and enjoy some lazy afternoons and have good conversations. This beach suburb is also lined with lots of cafes, bars and restaurants and has the ideal atmosphere of relaxation.

Cairns

This place is just something you need to see. Heaps of tours to the Great Barrier Reef and islands are available. The foreshore near the CBD is awesome and generally where you will find every backpacker in North Queensland. The Sky rail and Kuranda scenic will be a major highlight of your trip!

Daintree Forest

The perfect example of an Australian landscape, the beautiful Daintree forest has a diverse species of flora and fauna. Like the Great Barrier Reef, this place is a part of the UNESCO world heritage site.  A perfect place for nature-lovers!

Lamington National Park

Another UNESCO world heritage site, Lamington National Park is filled with unique flora and fauna.
