Queensland

From the city buzz of South East Queensland to the reefs and rainforests of the Tropical North, Queensland offers you an abundance of experiences. Australia’s second largest state is home to Brisbane, the Gold Coast and Cairns as well as many of the nation’s premiere natural attractions. The Great Barrier Reef, the Daintree Rainforest and Fraser Island are all found in Queensland.

Queensland is home to numerous Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander nations each with a unique culture and language; this cultural diversity means Queensland offers an exceptional opportunity to experience an array of cultural journeys.

Queensland is also home to an abundance of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Art both traditional and contemporary. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander art is among the oldest forms of art in the world. Like the different languages and cultures, art has a different meaning for different cultural groups. Colours and styles differ from one group to another, as do the messages and stories.
