Southern Queensland Country

Natural Encounters


Re-connect with nature at its best in the heart of Queensland’s countryside. Four distinct seasons create a kaleidoscope of colours, sounds and smells at the intersection of sub-tropical farmland and semi-arid outback.

In a place renowned for its many waterfalls, the crown of the region is Queen Mary Falls where Spring Creek takes a 40 metre plunge. Bunya Mountains is Queensland’s second oldest national park and host to a number of rare bird species, including catbirds, sooty owls and parrots.

Set up camp at the 2,500 hectare Bjelke-Petersen dam and share your playground with kangaroos, wallabies, koalas and a number of iconic bird species.

More relaxing encounters can be found in the garden city of Toowoomba, where 150 parks and gardens create the perfect setting for picnics and lazy lunches in the sun.
