Queensland Travel Tips & Suggestions

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!
My friends and I had an amazing trip at Magnetic Island Schoolies. It's a blast! There's also a cool band that played alternative music, which really rocked! It was nonstop dancing and partying all night. I really loved the drinks I've had! It was a totally sick experience we had! We sure will visit there again!
I've stayed in Coolangatta twice, and really like the area.
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.
The experiences I had in Laidley are amazing. I wouldn't miss a day!
Mount Isa is real grubby place, since it is a mining community. Every house seems to have a mean barking dog.
I had a brilliant time in townsville. It's a place where you can go to get a real feel of Ozy life as there isn't a huge backpacker appeal. It's just a really nice town and I look forward to going back. Another bonus is that it is a base for the Oz army so there were plenty of fit young men around. This was way back …
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.
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 …
Mackay is a safe town to walk and explore. Non-touristy and friendly locals.
Biloela was a great party town, small but good. Grew up there.
Rainbox Beach was just too lovely to describe with any justice. Anybody who wants a little paradise should definitely go to Rainbow Beach.
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 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.
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!
