Queensland & The Great Barrier Reef Highlights

The Australian Gold Coast is aptly named due to the beautiful and golden sandy beaches that occupy this particular stretch of the Australian coastline. The most notable beaches here are Airlie Beach, Mission Beach and Surfers’ Paradise but for those wanting some element of isolation from the traditional tourist beach hotspots, there is nothing like sampling the beaches of Whitsunday Islands. The islands themselves can be described as heaven on Earth as the soft sands, marvellously warm waters and naturally beautiful island interior ensure that you are surrounded by beautifully natural landscape.

Packing Tips

Queensland & the Great Barrier Reef are located on the East Coast of Australia and home to some of the country’s top rated beaches and most beautiful cities. Referred to as the "Sunshine State", Queensland is home to 10 of Australia's 30 largest cities too - so expect a great mix between beach life and city love.

Most people stopping in this part of Australia are hoping to explore the Barrier Reef, so you’ll no doubt need to put swimwear on your packing list. If you’re planning to snorkel or dive the reef, as well as your normal swimming costume or swim shorts, be sure to pack a swim-shirt that covers your shoulders which will prevent burning whilst in the sea.

Other packing essentials include; insect repellent (the climate is tropical on the north-east coastline so expect to get bitten often without it), a waterproof camera (for taking some amazing underwater photos) and (last but not least) high factor, waterproof sun-cream.

Weather In Queensland & Great Barrier Reef

Due to its size, the weather does vary depending on where you are. However, Queensland and the Great Barrier Reef has a slightly more tropical climate than other parts of Australia because the state goes so far north. Prepare for hot and humid days in the summer, and dry and warm days in the winter. In the far northern part of the region, expect monsoonal weather too.

Queensland has the highest average maximums of any Australian state, which is where it gets the nickname ‘Sunshine State’. In the tropical north, Queensland summer temperatures can reach over 31 degrees Celsius during the day, with humidity levels around 75%.
