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!
This accommodation can actually serve as a tourist attraction on its own, thanks to its unique architecture. The room for rent, which can fit up to two people, overlooks the national park. Its unique architecture makes guests feel as though they’re one with nature. There is a dedicated bathroom for private use and shared access to the kitchenette, yoga room, and the deck.
The host offers wellness packages to complete their guests’ stay at Sunrise Beach, including a relaxing, in-house massage, a guided tour through the national park, surfing lessons, paddleboard rentals, and yoga classes.

The provided linens and towels have been washed using environmentally-friendly detergent. It also comes with an outdoor kitchen and spa bath, as well as two balconies.
There is no WiFi on site, which is actually a plus, as guests can truly enjoy the breathtaking views of the forest and the beach, right from the treehouse.

Located on a cattle farm, right next to a World Heritage-listed rainforest in Cambridge Plateau, this cabin is a great place to stay, for those who want to get away from it all, especially with its magnificent views of Theresa Creek Valley.

Chill and unwind in a mid-century studio that is nestled in a semi-rural location that provides a tranquil and peaceful atmosphere.
