Tropical Queensland is home to more pristine islands and beaches than you can poke a stick at.
Save Place
Burleigh Beach, Queensland, Australia
This little patch of grass up on the headland along side Burleigh Beach is a prime snoozing spot after hitting the beach with friends and grabbing lunch from the local beachfront cafes. Burleigh is rarely very crowded and we had this spot all to...

Another photo of the beautiful sunsight on a deserted beach on Bribie Island. There are parts of the beach where driving ( 4WDing recommended) is allowed, and is often quite secluded. Perfect for an evening picnic! Bribie is close to the Sunshine...

Bribie Island, Queensland 4507, Australia
The view out the back of the Jeep driving home after a beach picnic on the beautiful Bribie Island. Only a short 50 minute drive from Brisbane, Bribie is a family favourite for its quiet beaches and relaxed culture.
Save Place
Mooloolaba Beach, Queensland, Australia
I loved island hopping and beach crawling through Europe, but couldn't wait to get home to the beautiful, spacious white sandy beaches back home in Australia which I've taken for granted. It's a little more 'crowded'* in the patrolled areas...
Save Place
Lizard Island, Cairns QLD 4871, Australia
Lizard Island, which sits at the northern tip of the Great Barrier Reef, is a ruggedly beautiful island in the clear blue ocean where you will feel truly secluded from the rest of the world. Pack a delicious gourmet picnic and escape to your own...

394 Shute Harbour Rd, Airlie Beach QLD 4802, Australia
Originally we had not set our sights on the Whitsunday's, rather we had booked a trip to Fraser Island. However a storm had cancelled those plans and suddenly the Whitsunday's came to us with all the magic of spontaneous travel. There are many...

20 Whitsunday Blvd, Whitsundays QLD 4803, Australia
Islands trace the Great Barrier Reef up the northeastern coast of Australia, clustering in the clear blue waters known as the Whitsundays. There, nestled on Hamilton Island, Qualia has set a new standard for Australian...
Save Place
Whitsunday Island QLD 4802, Australia
After a 15 minute 'bushwalk' though the Queensland rainforest, we got rewarded with one of the most-photographed views in Australia, Whitehaven Beach. Located on Whitsunday Island, a 40 minute boat ride from Airlie Beach, it is definitely worth...
Save Place
Point Lookout QLD 4183, Australia
Point Lookout on Stradbroke Island is the perfect place to take a dip in the waves, bliss out on the beach and tune in to island time. Enjoy this view from the Surf Life Saving Club over lunch or chill out on the beach before wandering down the...
Save Place
North Stradbroke Island, Queensland 4183, Australia
Squeezed in on Ipanema? Fought for beach real estate on Bondi? Stretch out on Cylinder Beach on Stradbroke Island. Just a short walk down the beach from Allure Resort is the pristine Cylinder Beach. Ten minutes down the road from the main part of...
Save Place
Take the short timber trail between beaches on Cylinder Beach for stunning views of the Stradbroke Island coast. Read more about Stradbroke Island on my blog, The Wanderbug.

East Coast Rd, Point Lookout QLD 4183, Australia
Brightly coloured beach shacks make Allure Resort my favourite place to stay on Stradbroke Island. Beats sharing walls, floors and ceilings with your neighbours! The shacks are modern, bright and breezy and have their own small kitchen, loft-style...
