Overview

While many visit Queensland for its beaches and the Great Barrier Reef, we also rate Queensland for its World-Heritage Listed Gondwana rainforests of the Scenic Rim region and Daintree, and for its Island trails ending in waterfalls and swimming holes – the Thorsborne Trail on Hinchinbrook Island is a good example. Such natural splendour calls for adventures on foot, and you’ll be walking through landscapes carved by creeks and waterfalls over millions of years. Queensland offers some of the best luxury lodges too, so you can balance all that walking with exceptional food and wine experiences at night and a beautiful view from your plush king bed.

We hope you’re inspired by our collection of luxury Queensland accommodation and experiences. You may also like to view our recommended luxury Queensland journey for more ideas, and then do let us know if we can help tailor an itinerary to suit your idea of the ultimate Queensland luxury holiday.

The ancient Gondwana rainforest of Scenic Rim is a special place to explore on foot, from the lush valleys to the mountain peaks. The coastal hinterland and towns like Byron Bay make this South-Eastern pocket of Queensland a must-visit.
