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.

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?
