Queensland has earned the name with Brisbane’s Sunshine Coast, Surfer’s Paradise and Gold Coast, where the sunrises are exquisite, such as on the world’s largest sand island, Fraser Island.  Further east is the heart of the Great Barrier Reef, the Whitsundays, with the islands of Hamilton and Hayman.  The reef stretches about 1500 miles north, up to Lizard Island which is one of two with beach access to the barrier reef.  Inland is Tropical North Queensland with the resort towns of Cairns, Palm Cove and Port Douglas.  There are many attractions and sightseeing opportunities, like getting your photo taken holding a koala.  The hidden treasure here is the world’s oldest rainforest.  The Daintree Rainforest dates back over 135 million years.  It was the nutrients draining from here into the ocean that created the Great Barrier Reef.

There are many ways to experience the Great Barrier Reef.  We have personally toured and met the owners of the most reef boat operations from Cairns to Port Douglas.  Each cater to a different experience that only a Premier Aussie Specialist, such as Seasoned Traveler, can help you determine which operation is best for you.
