Dominique Rizzo - Chef

"I love everything about Queensland. It offers so much, from its stunning beaches and mile-long coastlines to lush rainforests and dusty country towns. The weather is perfect and the people are relaxed and friendly.

"I especially love the food – Queensland is fast becoming the go-to destination for food and wine lovers, and it’s easy to see why, what with the freshest seafood, macadamia nuts and exotic fruits that you can only find in Tropical North Queensland, along with traditional bush tucker and Indigenous fare.

"I love being able to take the barge over to Stradbroke, Fraser or Moreton Islands. I love our nightlife but I also love that we are a little sleepy sometimes. Queensland has its own style, and what we do up here makes it one of the best places to be."

 Dominique Rizzo is in love with Queensland's food.

Deborah Mailman - Actress

"It is the only place on the planet where you can find breathtaking flora and fauna, magnificent beaches, the Great Barrier Reef, tropical rainforests, incredible surf, the Outback and complex river systems.

"Combine what nature offers with the friendly, open-hearted nature of the people, laid-back lifestyle and beautiful cities and Queensland truly has it all.”
