Queensland Travel Tips & Suggestions

Mount Isa is real grubby place, since it is a mining community. Every house seems to have a mean barking dog.
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.
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 …
Innisfail is a good place for a stop over and to earn some cash on the fruit picking but hard ass work...
I've stayed in Coolangatta twice, and really like the area.
Mackay is a safe town to walk and explore. Non-touristy and friendly locals.
Rainbox Beach was just too lovely to describe with any justice. Anybody who wants a little paradise should definitely go to Rainbow Beach.
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.
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!
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.
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.
I worked in Surfers Paradise for 14 months from Sep 2002-Dec 2003 for a backpackers hostel, and it's my favourite place in Australia. There's so much to do, the weathers always great, and you meet tons of people very easily. You can go to theme parks, watersports, skydiving, zorbing, nature walks in the hinterland (I …
I stayed in Tully for two and a half months as work was plentiful. If you want work you don't have to go through a hostel, just get up bright and early, say 5:30 am, and stand at the post office junction. Ask the farmers if they need help as no qualifications are ever asked. Tully and its environs have a lot to offer …
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!
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.
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 …
Rockhampton is a small city on the Capricorn Coast -- Queensland -- in Australia. This is a nice city divided by the Fitzroy River. The busiest zone is just across the main bridge -- Fitzroy Bridge -– in the south part of the city. The surroundings have a lot to explore, so Rockhampton will be a good place to overnight …
Townsville is a coastal city of about 180,000 residents in the northeastern parts of Queensland, Australia. Bruce Highway (which goes through the east coast) runs near Townsville which is known for its great location for several reasons. It's close to the central part of the Great Barrier Reef, and this makes the city …
Noosa Heads is a gorgeous, beachside town located on the Sunshine Coast in the southern part of Queensland, Australia. If you are staying in a hostel in Noosa Heads, you are in the centre of the action, as this area of the three that make up the Noosa region is closest to all of the restaurants and shops located on …
Atherton is the main city in Atherton Tablelands in Queensland, Australia and it is where you will find the most hostels in the area. This region is best known for having beautiful landscapes, formed by more than sixty volcanoes that created a vast scenario of gentle hills and amazing waterfalls -- more than one …
