Queensland is one of the most famous and most visited states in Australia, located in the north-east of the country. If three colours could sum up Queensland it would be the gold of the golden, sandy beaches at Surfers Paradise and Coolangatta; the green of Daintree National Park, colourful and lush all-year-round; and the blue of the crystal blue waters at the Great Barrier Reef. In essence, it is one of the most beautiful states in the whole of Australia.

Also, sites such as Fraser Island and the Whitsundays draw tourists in their millions. Or it could be the 300 days of sunshine a year that Queensland gets. Whatever it is, Queensland really does have a lot to offer backpackers and travellers alike.
