North Queensland has some of the best resorts in all of Australia, which is why the region is so popular with holidaymakers from across the country and around the world.

Orpheus Island Resort is always a favourite, particularly for couples looking for an exclusive romantic setting. The island is surrounded by some of the clearest blue water, making it perfect for snorkelling and other water activities. The resort itself has luxuriously appointed rooms with a view and guests are treated to world-class meals daily. There are numerous holiday packages you can choose from and so much to see and do on Orpheus Island.

The Daintree Ecolodge is a Queensland retreat with a difference, as it’s located right in the middle of the ancient Daintree Rainforest. It truly is a place to escape daily life and simply immerse yourself in nature. You’ll feel like you’re living in the rainforest when you book a stay at the Daintree Ecolodge. There is loads to explore in the area and the lodge itself is pure luxury in the heart of the wilderness.


#2 – Stunning Scenery

The Great Barrier Reef is a Queensland retreat that everyone should see and experience at least once. You can charter a boat to go out and see the reef, where you can snorkel or scuba dive, swimming with the colourful reef fish and other magnificent sea life. Alternatively, you can do a flyover of the region by chartering your own private helicopter from Nautilus Aviation.

Situated right on the coast of the Coral Sea is the tranquil and picturesque Daintree Rainforest, where you’ll discover some of the oldest rainforest in the world and be able to spend time with Australia’s native wildlife. Explore Mossman Gorge, walk trails to the many waterfalls, or book in for a stay at the Daintree Ecolodge.


#3 – Unique Activities and Experiences

Scenic flights, as mentioned in the section above, are one of the best ways to see and appreciate the beauty of the Great Barrier Reef, Cairns, Townsville and other parts of this stunning area of the world. Take off on a 30 minute, 45 minute or 1 hour helicopter flight to drink in the views, or even land on a remote sand cay for lunch and swimming.

Try a combination fly and cruise package, where you fly out to the reef onboard the chopper, swim and snorkel for several hours and enjoy a hot or cold lunch while there, then return to the mainland via boat. Or, you can do different combinations, where you can cruise out to the reef and then fly back, or fly out and back on the chopper. No matter what you decide upon, it will be a Queensland retreat to remember.
