Despite it being a tourist hotspot, Queensland is not the kind of place that most tourists know about, like say Melbourne or Sydney, for instance. By now a great majority of the tourists themselves know certain parts of both cities inside out due to the fact that they have been visiting them for so long. However, this is not the case with Queensland. After all, one does yearn for the solitude and peacefulness associated with a relatively less-crowded place as compared to a tourist hotspot for the large majority of the year. You can be sure of that fact.

Having said that, Brisbane being the sunny capital of Queensland is pretty much the perfect place to start your journey. Not only are there a wide plethora of places to eat and drink serving you some of the choicest dishes and drinks, but it also boasts of an equally thriving nightlife that is compatible with Vegas at its best. Now that is certainly not a small claim to make.

During the peak seasons, there are a great many places to visit and things to do in Queensland. You could visit the pristine and exquisite art gallery soaking in the beauty of thousands of art works or even treat yourself to a lovely Island stroll basking in the beauty of numerous lagoons, lakes and beaches. For all those of you who are theme park fans, you need not look any further than Gold Coast which has enough variety in theme parks to keep you and your family entertained for days on end.
