Begin Your Adventure in Brisbane

Life in Brisbane revolves around the outdoors. As the capital of Australia’s Sunshine State, Brisbane invites you to kick off your shoes, grab your mates and enjoy the food, art, and adventure on offer. Nearby, you’ll find glitz and glam on the beachy Gold Coast; stunning hikes in the richly forested Gold Coast Hinterland; and the world-famous Australia Zoo, founded by the Irwin family.

Explore the Great Barrier Reef

There are countless ways to discover the one and only Great Barrier Reef! Diving, snorkeling, and swimming are just the beginning. Take in the awe-inspiring magnitude of the reef from above in a helicopter, then touch down on the pristine white sands of Whitehaven Beach. Float over Heart Reef and enjoy an excursion at the new, ultra-exclusive Heart Island in the midst of the Great Barrier Reef itself.

Don’t want to get wet? Glass-bottom kayaks, underwater reef viewing pontoons, and semi-submersibles all give you a glimpse of the countless colorful species in the reef. You can even stay overnight in an underwater Reef Suite!

Discover Ancient Cultures in the Daintree

The Daintree Rainforest is the world’s oldest living rainforest, and it’s home to ancient indigenous cultures, as well. Explore this magical landscape with an Aboriginal guide, who will pass down the knowledge of generations and share traditional uses of the local plants, ancient hunting and spear throwing techniques, and sacred Dreamtime stories handed down from the beginning of time. There are plenty of opportunities to see Australian wildlife in the rainforest, as well!
