Make a holiday rental property or holiday apartment in Queensland, Australia your home away from home

The Sunshine State of Australia, Queensland, has something to endear every visitor, from the isolated white sand beaches and the diving sights of the Great Barrier Reef to the wild expanses of the great Australian outback and tropical rainforests of north Queensland. Whether you decide to take a holiday rental property in Queensland’s bustling cities or secluded in the unrivalled scenery of the countryside, a Queensland holiday will remain with you for ever.

Things to do on holiday in Queensland, Australia

There are no less than five World Heritage Sites in Queensland alone. The world’s largest sand island, Fraser Island is a particular favourite with visitors who can spend their days trying to drive around the island in a 4x4, stopping regularly to dig themselves out or to swim in one of the delightfully warm and clear freshwater lakes. Another World Heritage Site and probably the most famous in Queensland is the Great Barrier Reef, which is the pinnacle of sport for scuba divers. The Great Barrier Reef hides many unbelievable treasures which can only be explored from the water.

All along the coast of Queensland water sports thrive. There are a number of hot spots of activity in Queensland, from sailing in the Whitsunday Islands to scuba diving on the Great Barrier Reef, but in general, taking coastal accommodation in Queensland will ensure you get magnificent opportunities to practice water sports of all varieties.

Travel north in Queensland and you will eventually arrive in the astonishing landscape of Tropical North Queensland. The Wet Tropics (also a World Heritage site) cover a landscape of deep gorges, fearsome mountain peaks and plunging waterfalls which make walking, climbing and riding holidays a simply magical experience. The more traditional outback is also plentiful in Queensland, and although not many Queensland holidays revolve around the wild emptiness of the Outback, there are some magnificent adventures to be had, from fishing in local spots or having a cool beer in an iconic outback pub, there is a huge amount of fun to be had from a Queensland property in the wilderness.

Places to visit on holiday in Queensland, Australia

Brisbane is Queensland’s capital. Filled with endless entertainment options, the vibrant, ever changing city of Brisbane is a wonderful place to take a Queensland holiday apartment. During the evenings, the city comes to life as people flock to the many bars, restaurants and clubs which decorate the city centre. Arts and culture thrive in Brisbane, and there is nothing nicer than dining in the warm evening alongside the Brisbane River which winds its way through the city. Queensland accommodation in Brisbane is also a magnificent base for exploring both the Gold Coast and the Sunshine Coast, just an hour away by road.

Weather in Queensland, Australia

There are over 300 days of bright sunshine every year in Queensland, Australia. The territory is very large, so generalisations are not going to fit for the whole area. During summer, daily temperatures in the summer reach between 29˚C and 32˚C, and nowhere suffers winter temperatures of less than 5˚C, even high in the hills of southeast Queensland.

Flights to Queensland, Australia

If you travel to Queensland from the UK, you will arrive into Brisbane International Airport (BNE). Although there are no direct flights from Britain to Australia, there are many airlines which provide services with short stopovers, and no need to worry about checking you luggage onto the second leg, meaning you can be settled into a Queensland holiday apartment or property in no time!
