Queensland
With the oldest tropical rainforest, the biggest dinosaur fossil,
and a reef you can see from the moon, Queensland isn’t a place
that does things by halves. Beyond the big ticket items, there’s
7000km of turquoise coastline to enjoy, a fascinating outback,
300 days of sunshine, and more pineapples and prawns than
G
you can poke a stick at.

Eromanga
Great Barrier Reef
Kurrimine Beach Holiday Park
Spread over a whopping 350,000 square kilometres,
with 3000 individual reefs and 900 islands, calling this
particular coral reef “great” is a bit of an understatement.
Whether you’re there to snorkel, scuba dive or find
Nemo through a glass bottomed boat, seeing the
wonders of the world’s largest living organism is an
experience that’ll stay with you always.
Stay at Kurrimine Beach and you won’t even have to
get on a boat to get up close and personal with the
coral. Plan your stay during the low, reef-walking tides,
and you’ll be able to wade out and explore King Reef
from your caravan doorstep – no exxy boat tours or
Travacalm necessary.
Rainbow Beach
Rainbow Beach Holiday Village
Hit the sand in your 4WD, find secret surf breaks, camp
oceanside and see the colourful sedimentary striations
that give Rainbow Beach its name. Located a whisker
south of the world’s biggest sand island, Rainbow Beach
is just the beginning of your Fraser Coast adventures.
Leave behind the high-rise bustle of most popular
vacation spots and dig your toes into the coloured
sands of Rainbow Beach. The only holiday village
in the township of Rainbow Beach, the wide range
of accomodation overlooking the ocean makes it
the perfect spot for travellers, caravanners and
campers alike.

Eromanga
Eromanga Natural History Museum
Make a break for the Outback and visit Australia’s
furthest town from the sea – population, 45. Ahhh,
but what Eromanga lacks in people, it makes up for
in dinosaurs. The highlight of this prehistoric hotbed?
A mighty 95-98 million year-old titanosaur called
“Cooper”, one of the largest dinosaur discoveries in
the world.
Spend a night at the museum, Queensland style. As well
as having an array of dinosaur bones, micro fauna, mega
fauna and plant fossils on display, the Eromanga Natural
History Museum lets you get hands-on preparing fossils
in the lab or out on a dig, before crashing out in cosy
lodge accommodation.
