Best things to do outdoors in Queensland

Queensland’s superstar undeniably is the Great Barrier Reef. This technicolor world hidden underwater is one of nature’s true masterpieces. Here, some of the best outdoor things to do in Queensland are found, from amazing diving and snorkeling spots to sailing, jet skiing and more! It’s easy to visit and tour when you stay in coastal towns like Cairns, Port Douglas, Townsville, and Gladstone, to name a few. One popular thing to do is to rent a charter and sail through the Whitsunday Islands. Be sure to hop off and check out Whitehaven Beach—regularly voted as one of the top 10 best beaches in the world! But the fun doesn’t stop there; Caloundra’s amazing waves and the dunes of Fraser Island (the world’s largest sand island) make them perfect spots for surfing and sand-boarding. Other great things to do outside in Queensland include whale watching in the sheltered waters of Hervey Bay. From July through November, visitors can hope to catch a glimpse of humpback whales as they migrate north along the Queensland coast; many stop in Hervey Bay to breed and nurse their newborns!
