Queensland Travel Tips & Suggestions

I have fantastic memories of Bundaberg and would go back. I loved the hillbilly feel of the town. Beats the cities any day. Work is hard but well worth the experience.
Mackay is a safe town to walk and explore. Non-touristy and friendly locals.
Cardwell is the most beautiful place I may have ever been on Earth! The main street has mountians on one side and a simple, untouched beach on the other! It is in "croc country", so no swimming, but the view is enough to fall in love with Cardwell!! There are cute cafes and wonderful locals. The local Catholic …
Brisbane is a fantastic city! We loved our stay here. Brisbane was fabulous - South Bank (wow!) the river (wow) and great feel for a city. We saw some great AFl with the Brisbane Lions too!
Maroochydore is a great place to do fruit picking as it is so close to the beach, has lovely weather, plenty of charity shops, and great drinking holes!
Bowen is one of my favourite spots in Oz. My tip is to mingle with the locals and they will show you the best time ever coz they are the friendliest bunch of Ozzies I ever met.
I think Airlie Beach is a wonderful place to relax and it has the most beautiful scenery.
We enjoyed Great Keppel Island, wonderfull atmosphere, beautyful sea and white beaches, good to relax your mind with yoga and your body with some trackers or snorkeling or kayaking. The best in Australia in my opinion.
I've stayed in Coolangatta twice, and really like the area.
Rainbox Beach was just too lovely to describe with any justice. Anybody who wants a little paradise should definitely go to Rainbow Beach.
Mission Beach is a great little beach town. Its away from the hussle and bussle of other tourist areas so one can actually enjoy the place they are at.
Mount Isa is real grubby place, since it is a mining community. Every house seems to have a mean barking dog.
Innisfail is a good place for a stop over and to earn some cash on the fruit picking but hard ass work...
Broadbeach is great, its only minutes to Surfers and has some great things to do as it is on the beach with its surf clubs. And the casino is always great with Thursday night -- cheap drinks in the casino's Prince Albert Bar. It's where a lot of the young loacals go.
For the three days I was in Cairns I realized it's truly beautiful. I suggest that that everyone go snorkeling and/or scuba diving on the Great Barrier Reef.
About an hour north of Brisbane in the heart of the Sunshine Coast is Maroochydore. The area is home to some stunning golden sand beaches and there is much to see and do here (the beach is the number one attraction for most tourists). The town itself lies on an inlet of a river. and so while most of the hostels in …
Noosa North Shore is quieter than the rest of the Noosa region. If you want to get here from Noosa, you will need to take a boat over from the end of Moorindil Street in Tewantin. It is only a two-minute trip and you can take your car over on the ferry with you if you are traveling with one. Given that this is such a …
Coolangatta is a small city with a decent number of hostels in southern point of the Gold Coast of Australia. One cool thing about the area is that a neighbouring town called Tweed Heads is separated from Coolangatta by a single street; Tweed Heads is in New South Wales and Coolangatta belongs to Queensland -- this …
Surrounded by some of far northern Queensland’s most stunning scenery, Innisfail is a prosperous country town with much to interest backpackers. Just an hour’s drive south of Cairns on the Bruce Highway, it’s also a short drive from beautiful Mission Beach, the lush rainforests of the Atherton Tablelands, and great …
Hervey Bay is mainly a backpacker town on the coast, in between travel to or from Cairns and Sydney. It is a short, but not to be missed, stopover in East coast travel. If you have rented a car or camper van, it is easy to find a Hervey Bay hostel. But if you are taking a bus, it may be harder to reach some of the …
