Tropical North Queensland

Places To Visit


Home to two of the world’s greatest natural wonders and some of Australia’s best beaches, this tropical region is a paradise waiting to be discovered.

Explore the World Heritage-listed Great Barrier Reef and Daintree Rainforest, go white-water rafting on the Tully River or skydive over a palm fringed beach.

From secluded island hideaways to the red sand and savannah grasslands of the outback, the natural environment is as diverse as the cultures making up this little slice of paradise.

Nestled between rainforest retreats and day spas, the Atherton Tablelands offer self-drive food trails where you can sample the best tropical fruits, coffee and produce the region has to offer.

Been there, done that? Take a walk on the wild side and explore the dirt roads from Cooktown to Cape York with a 4WD or go island-hopping the Torres Strait. The northern-most tip of Australia is one the most remote wilderness areas in the world and a hotbed for adventure.
