Queensland Holidays - The Official Tourism Site for Queensland

Experience Natural Encounters


Pull on your hiking boots and trek along one of the picturesque walks in our National Parks. There’s a walk for every pace and fitness level, whether you just want a short easy stroll to a magnificent lookout, want to climb down to a swimming hole for a dip or take on an adventurous overnight camping hike across spectacular terrain.

From your first step you will be captivated by the green wonderland around you. Your senses will be heightened as you hear bird-life chirping happily in the treetops and as you stumble across multi-million dollar views from the lookouts, like the gorgeous Hills Inlet viewing platform or the Coral Sea views from Hinchinbrook Island, off the coast of the Whitsundays and Townsville, respectively.

As you explore the Wet Tropics on foot, keep your eyes peeled for the rare Cassowary as you wonder through some of the most diverse plant life in Australia or explore hidden cave systems and tidal rock pools in Central Queensland. Charge your camera batteries to capture the stunning views of Glass House Mountains in the Sunshine Coast Hinterland or the plunging falls at Springbrook National Park in the Gold Coast Hinterland

Queensland’s best walks are free and a whole lot of fun.
