World Heritage-Listed sites, stunning beaches and outback adventures
Adopt a laidback Queenslander attitude and spend your long weekend with your feet up in the Sunshine State. In the far north, Cairns is unashamedly tourist-focussed with easy access to natural wonders like the Great Barrier Reef and Daintree Rainforest. A perfect destination for chilling out, weekends in Cairns are filled with lazing on the esplanade, sampling fresh regional produce and breathing in sweet humidity where the rainforest meets the sea. Further up the coast, the laissez-faire way of life in Port Douglas lures Sydneysiders and Melbournites throughout the year. Port Douglas' palm-lined streets are dotted with resort-wear retailers and al fresco restaurants taking full advantage of the balmy Coral Sea breeze.
For a weekend escape combining sand, surf and salacious nightlife, spend a few days in the glittering Gold Coast. Gaze out at the sandy shore from your high-rise hotel to see glamorous locals and tourists alike working on their tans. For a change of scenery, head to the hinterland for a romantic bed and breakfast retreat in mountain surrounds. Take off for a weekend to the state's capital Brisbane, which continues to cultivate its new-world city persona. While previously overshadowed by southern capitals, Brisbane is making itself known with chic cafes popping up on every corner and a thriving arts scene.
Queensland's coast is lined with islands perfect for a well-deserved short break. Cruise the Whitsundays, island-hopping between reef snorkelling and long walks on powdery white beaches. For even more fun in the sun, the Sunshine Coast lives up to its name with a mix of beachside towns for luxury, surfing and quality family time. If you're wondering what to do this weekend, why not treat yourself to a short break in Queensland? Take off on Friday and be back refreshed for the start of the working week!
