Luxury, Romantic and Boutique Accommodation in Queensland

Welcome to the Sunshine State.

Get to know Queensland and its collection of sun-kissed getaways

Sun, sun and more sun: it’s the Queensland way. Thankfully there are plenty of places to enjoy the sunshine, with some of Australia’s most beautiful beaches and coral regions lining the eastern shores of this large state. It comes as little surprise that Queensland’s coastal offerings are its most frequented drawcards. After all, who could say no to gorgeous white sand, seemingly endless coral reefs and tropical islands? 

There are plenty of beachy bases to choose from. Paradise finds its home in the Whitsundays, with Hamilton Island and Airlie Beach popular year-round destinations. Hole up with your loved one is a luxury villa or adults-only resort, only emerging to stroll hand-in-hand along the beach or cheers over a candlelit dinner. These islands aren’t just for couples though: families flock here too, thanks to the convenient combination of group-friendly accommodation and a smorgasbord of activities to keep you occupied.

Back on the mainland, Palm Cove and Port Douglas are seaside villages that set the scene for any warm weather getaway, and Noosa offers the best of beautiful beaches and luxury resorts. Then there is Surfers Paradise, a magnet of hedonistic pleasures; Fraser Island, home to free-roaming dingoes and inland lakes; and far-flung Cape Tribulation. 

That isn’t to say that the state is limited to sweeping oceanic views. Adding to Queensland’s pull is a mix of verdant rainforests, cosmopolitan cities, peaceful retreats and outback landscapes. All are perfect for an escape, no matter if you book a high-rise apartment on the Gold Coast, an elevated tree house in the Sunshine Coast Hinterland or a cool house in buzzing Brisbane.

Whether you choose to experience island life, the mainland or a bit of both, Queensland is getaway destination that meets all expectations. It might be the setting for your first romantic escape with a new partner; it could even be your local honeymoon spot. You could make an annual migration to Queensland’s sunny shores with family and old friends, or you might book a luxurious stay on a weekend whim.
