Welcome to Tropical North Queensland

World class natural experiences designed by nature The North Queensland Tropical Coast is a unique part of Australia and an absolutely unique part of North Queensland. It features world class natural experiences, no crowds, no rush and no stress. This amazing destination is built to Explore. It can be discovered in line with your own flexibility in your own time and your own vehicle. It is a driving delight. The 350 kilometres between Cairns and Townsville can be completed by car in about five hours. But don’t do it! You’ll want to take the time to turn down that road, take a walk, check out this beach, that pub, or just stop as you discover this amazing region. Give yourself a week to fully appreciate its unique appeal. It is traversed by Australia’s National Highway One but be aware that many of the highlights are off the highway. And the next town is about a 30-minute drive so just relax and take in the adventure. Barefoot millionaires abound in the area, but don’t worry, be happy, as you will be given the same friendly welcome. You will find more 3-star options than 5-star, but the inspiring landscapes are rated some of the best in the World, at least 7-star, and “of outstanding value to humanity” (UNESCO). It’s not really a problem to decide which end to start your journey. If you arrive on a flight into Cairns, it makes sense to travel South. If you arrive in Townsville, you will travel North. The choice is yours and it works equally well from both locations. And once you have experienced the destination’s uniqueness, please tell your friends and family about its wonderful features …
