Spring has sprung! A forecast for warmer days ahead has us thinking about our next beach break (and the fact that we can no longer rely on winter layers to hide the evidence of hibernation. Is there a a way to get a #summerbod that still involves doughnut-topped milkshakes?).

Queensland is home to endless sandy stretches, both heaving with tourists and without a single footprint in sight. Here is just a small selection of Queensland's most Insta-worthy beaches, from the warm waters of the Tropics to the great sandy highway of Fraser Island; the Gold Coast's well-trod shoreline and the silica sands of the Whitsundays.

When I'm not at home in Brisbane, you’ll find me wanderlusting around hipster bars, eclectic boutiques and arty nooks. From bagels in Brooklyn to strudel in Salzburg, I believe the best way to experience a destination is by taking a bite! Tweets & 'grams at @AshtonRigg
