Queensland Australia has a population of around 4.5 million people, most of whom live in the coastal region of Australia’s northeastern state where you’ll find coral beaches that feed into the Pacific Ocean.
It covers more than 1.9 million square kilometers of the country, in which 10 of the country’s 30 largest cities can be found as well as several National Parks.
1. Visit the National Park on Wildlife Trek
Some of the rarest and most endangered species are the indescribable inhabitants of Queensland’s outback. you can visit Daintree Rain Forest where you will be one of the few people in the world who can truly say that you have seen a wild Cassowary. In Eungella National Park, you’ll love getting up close to the famous platypus, or you can hop over to Cape Hillsborough to see kangaroos basking in the sun. If you’re lucky enough to be at the right time of year, you can make it down to Mon Repo in time to see the turtle hatchlings.
2. Extreme Jungle Sports
Australia is known for its sun and surf, so why not try Jungle surfing for size. On this ride you will get a zip line through the canopy. Alternatively, you can get your feet wet trying a white-water rafting expedition by jumping the rapids for one of the hostile local rivers. If all that seems a little too rough and ready for your taste, then perhaps you can pit your wits against some of the toughest landscapes this terrain has to offer by going on a rock climbing adventure.
3. Camping on the Stars
Many people compare camping in Australia to camping in Africa. This couldn’t be further from the truth because even though Australia is known for some pretty gruesome reptiles, there are no big cats to worry about. You can sleep under the stars in one of the many camping spots that still offer the comforts of home you might yearn for while escaping reality in one of nature’s most beautiful settings.
4. Play Online Poker
