To say that Queensland is filled with tourist attractions is an understatement. With just about every kind of sight and terrain possible, there is surely something here to appeal to any and every tourist, no matter what their interest. At the top of the list of attractions in the area is the Great Barrier Reef, the largest coral reef across the globe and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. If you prefer being closer to shore, you can explore the Whitehaven Beach, which has been consistently ranked as one of the best beaches in the world.
Those who love greenery can head on over to the Daintree Rainforest, the oldest of its kind in the world. Animal lovers, meanwhile, can drop by the Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary, where they can have close encounters with Australia’s local fauna. What are you waiting for? Book one of these Airbnb vacation rentals now and grab the opportunity to see these marvels for yourself!
