Queensland Travel Update


Queensland Travel News

Fantastic news! We can now travel to that wonderful sunshine state of Queensland! So much to do there!

The advice issued by Tourism and Events Queensland is that “Interstate travellers can enter Queensland from midday, Friday 10 July, except people who have been in Victoria in the 14 days prior to arriving in Queensland”. 


The theme parks and all the other attractions have had a good scrub down and the thrills are back!   Thrills and spills amongst a myriad of other things to see and do in Queensland!

The Reef and the Islands – Far North Queensland – the Outback, even the Gulf and the savanna country – the famous beaches of the Sunshine and Gold Coasts – dynamic cities from Brisbane, dotted all the way to Cairns – and more!

Of course, we’re only a phone call away – 4972 1222 – to handle your inquiry and confirm the Queensland holiday that you are very much looking forward to.

PS. Our new, regular feature is “Where will I travel when the W.A.I.T. T. is over?”

We’ll endeavour to highlight a number of different destinations each time we publish this newsletter.

“Where will I travel when the W.A.I.T. T. is over?” can be found at the foot of the newsletter and we are sure that you will all find a wonderful destination for yourselves, somewhere.

Discover Queensland’s Beaches … sink your toes in, linger a while

The gentle crescendo of waves lapping the shore, the still morning breeze, the flickering of light from a dull hue to soft orange, and then the full break of day.

If you haven’t watched the sunrise over a Queensland beach, your senses are missing out.

Queensland beaches are, of course, more than the perfect place for a morning coffee and a moment of peace – they hold something different for so many.

Discover Queensland’s Cities … energetic, enlivening, refreshing

When you enter a city, you’re walking into a unique melting pot of culture and innovation, punctuated by architectural feats and a splash of dining in unexpected locations.

A place with a purposeful pulse, led by the people who visit every day and the people who’ve never visited before. It’s that feeling that sets each Queensland city apart.

Welcome to Queensland’s Outback and Country … open skies, open roads, open hearts

When you’re looking to replace screen time with green time, only one place comes to mind: the Queensland country.

Escape west for the chance to get back to nature – whether it be a farm stay, station experience or simply the chance to escape the four walls of your normal backyard.

In Queensland’s country and Outback, your handshake is your business card and your smile, your logo – a place where the local characters you’ll meet share two common traits: they’re both warm and welcoming.

The Great Barrier Reef … share in this World-Heritage listed wonder

Rich in biodiversity and natural wonder, the World Heritage-listed Great Barrier Reef is the world’s largest coral reef system, stretching from the tip of Cape York in Queensland’s north, all the way to Bundaberg in the south.

Together, it’s our role to continue to care for the Reef  – and by visiting you’re contributing to its conservation, and helping to protect it for many generations to come. 

Discover Queensland’s Islands … take a tropical eco-escape

Located across Queensland’s north-east coast, Queensland’s many islands offer a magical holiday destination, packed with culture, adventure and an idyllic escape from the everyday.

Perfect for an outdoor adventure holiday, relaxing tropical break, family vacation or romantic getaway, embrace the stunning weather and explore our islands’ untouched natural beauty and surrounds.

Boasting incredible attractions, sun-soaked scenery and exciting wildlife tours at a pristine beach holiday destination, there’s a Queensland island to suit every type of traveller.

Discover Queensland’s Nature and Wildlife … ready to explore ?

Step outside, take a breath, and feel the warmth against your skin. In Queensland, being outdoors is part of our DNA. Our wide-open spaces are home to some of the most biologically diverse environments and animals on earth.

When you visit our lush rainforests, vibrant reefs, awe-inspiring national parks or fertile countryside, making a true connection with nature is inevitable.
