Best Queensland Tours & Day Trips

Queensland’s cosmopolitan capital Brisbane is a gateway to some of the state’s most popular day trip destinations. Just across Moreton Bay, North Stradbroke Island and Moreton Island offer amazing wildlife spotting opportunities and water activities. Slightly south of Brisbane, the Gold Coast is famed for sun, sand and surf. But don’t miss the region’s incredible hinterlands, home to verdant rainforests and spectacular waterfalls. Explore the tranquil alpine areas on our Mt Tamborine or Natural Arch and Springbrook tours.

Travelling north from Brisbane, you’ll arrive in Noosa, a chic coastal town on the Sunshine Coast. Join our Sunshine Coast Hinterland and Noosa day tour from Brisbane to spend the day exploring the lush surrounds and artisanal markets of this stylish community. If you’re staying on the Sunshine Coast, why not explore the unspoilt Noosa Everglades with our canoe tour? Or head to the region’s most famous attraction, Fraser Island, on our one or two day tours. Fall in love with the unique environments on Fraser Island as you 4WD along the beaches of the world’s largest sand island!

No trip to Queensland is complete without spending a day lazing on the impossibly white sands of Whitehaven Beach. One of the best beaches in Australia, Whitehaven Beach is located on Whitsunday Island. Join our Whitsunday Islands tours from Airlie Beach for a day exploring the unforgettable Whitsundays.

Tropical North Queensland Tours

The true jewel in the Queensland’s crown is Cairns. This laidback city in the state’s tropical north is home to not one, but two World Heritage Listed sites – the Daintree Rainforest and the Great Barrier Reef.

With several Great Barrier Reef cruises available, we’re sure to have a trip to suit you. Have a go at scuba diving on our Great Barrier Reef Deluxe cruise or spend the day on a lux catamaran on our Premium Snorkelling Tour. Our Pontoon Adventure offers stacks of ways to enjoy the reef from the activity platform. Or snorkel the fringing reef off the beach on our Green Island and Fitzroy Island tours.

Back on land, there are waterfalls to chase and ancient rainforest to explore! Our Daintree Rainforest tours will take you through the world’s oldest rainforest to discover the wealth of plant and animal life found in Tropical North Queensland. Atherton Tablelands tours spend the day splashing about in secret swimming spots and cascading waterfalls. Make sure you plan enough time in Cairns to do it all!
