Dripping in natural wonderQueensland is an incredible mix of highlights
When it comes to luxury holidays in Queensland, there’s plenty of opportunities to relax and explore. With its golden beaches, colourful reefs, lush jungles and slow-paced approach to life, it’s no wonder that it’s one of Australia’s most sought-after regions.
Of all its landscapes, Queensland is most famed for the brilliant Great Barrier Reef that stretches over 2,000km along the coast. Don a snorkel or scuba diving gear and head beneath the waves to be amazed by the spectacular underwater landscapes and colourful marine life. Other popular watersports include white water rafting in the rivers and sea kayaking along the coast.
There are also a wealth of wonderful islands just offshore, with secluded sand dunes and tropical forest interiors are waiting to be explored. Hire a sailing boat to experience the brilliant blue Whitsunday waters and swathes of white sands, or embark on an exhilarating 4WD road safari along the beach highway on Fraser Island.
Back on the mainland, there are many national parks to discover with harbours, inviting lakes, deep green rainforests and a range of dazzling wildlife, including koalas and crocodiles. In Brisbane and Surfers Paradise, the impressive skyscrapers strike a stark contrast to the natural landscapes, while the rest of Queensland offers an abundance of chilled-out beachside towns and sweeping fields full of sugar-canes.
If you want to soak up the scenery on foot, you’ll find some outstanding treks and trails in Queensland. Take a multi-day hike out into the bush, climb steep mountains for panoramic views or explore the gentle nature trails that wind through the rainforest. You can also while away the days skydiving, fishing, surfing, mountain biking and even hang-gliding, to name just a few of the outdoors activities on offer.
The bustling city of Brisbane offers a sophisticated coffee culture, as well as many fabulous farmers’ markets and award-winning restaurants. The capital of Queensland is made up of many cultural neighbourhoods which are well worth exploring. Visit the upmarket Paddington, the party hotspot of Fortitude Valley and the arty West End. As the sun goes down, the city’s vibrant nightlife comes alive, with a wide range of pubs, clubs and bars to choose from.
You’ll find more lively night scenes and culinary gems in Cairns, Port Douglas and Noosa. If you’re feeling thirsty, try out the famous Castlemaine XXXX beer or head to the wine region of Granite Belt and go on a vineyard tasting tour.

We have been using Azure to arrange our holidays for over 12 years. Every year usually twice a year, sometimes more, we rely on the experienced team at Chester to provide expert information on our chosen destinations. Be it a return to our established favorites in Barbados and Dubai or a new and exiting destination chosen from Azures brochure it is always handled in a friendly and competent manner. The small details are not missed such as do we need late check out or early arrival, which can make such a difference after sometimes long hours travelling. For us using Azure takes the uncertainty out of booking holidays.
We have been booking our holidays through Azure for 10 years and we can thoroughly recommend them. The Azure team arrange amazing holidays, well chosen destinations and hotels with a tailored itinerary that runs like clockwork with so many wonderful extras, it really takes the time and stress out of planning. When the weather has disrupted our journeys, their 24 hour service has provided us with 5* rescues! Nothing is too much trouble for Azure staff and the same goes for all the staff we have met on our Azure holidays which really are out of this world. We continue to recommend your company and all your wonderful team and look forward to our next holiday with you.
Well we are back in the UK after an amazing trip for a very special birthday and must thank Azure in Chester and Jayne O'Gorman for organising everything after we won the auction bid for this trip with SeaDream Yacht Club at Valerie's Summer Ball last year! We had the trip of a lifetime, met amazing people, visited fabulous places and befriended the superb crew aboard SeaDream I. We couldn't fault a single thing onboard - just amazing and hope we can meet the crew again at some future date! I even cried when i had to leave! Well done Azure and Jayne O'Gorman.
My first experience with Azure was when they came to my rescue when my family and I were stranded abroad on holiday without accommodation, their professionalism and ability to make things happen at very very short notice was second to none. They were very knowledgeable and were able to utilise their many relationships within the industry to get things resolved for me within an hour. I can't praise them enough for rescuing my family's holiday and making it a truly memorable time. Since then the team always do their best to make my holidays the best they can possibly be based on their own vast travel knowledge and experiences. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them and wouldn't use anyone else for luxurious travel.
