Of all the very many glorious experiences to be had in Australia, the things to do in Queensland have to be among the best. The state – known as The Sunshine State - offers more than any traveller or holidaymaker could hope for in any one visit. I mean, who could argue against glorious weather, impressive scenery, stupendous beaches and some of Mother Nature’s most incredible creations. Let’s take a run around some of the best things to do in Queensland and see if you don’t agree with me that is is one of the best destinations in the world.
1. Explore the Great Barrier Reef
There are many fantastic things to do in Queensland but the one you really shouldn’t miss out on is the opportunity to explore the only living organism that can be seen from outer space. The Great Barrier Reef is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and stretches along most of Queensland’s east coast, from the Torres Strait southwards to the area around Fraser Island, the world's largest sand island. The best way to explore this extraordinary coral reef system is to dive or snorkel in parts of it. However, you can also go on trips in glass-bottom boats, sail its waters or see it from way up high on a scenic flight.
