Whether it's the sunshine, the stunning beaches, reef and rainforests, or the people and the great outdoor lifestyle - all the much loved aspects of Queensland are ready and waiting to be enjoyed as part of an Australian holiday.
Scottish comedian Billy Connolly was among the many who have been visiting Queensland in recent days. Billy was hosted by the Queensland Tourism Industry Council (QTIC) for his first ever visit to the Great Barrier Reef, one of the seven natural wonders of the world.
Tourism Australia Managing Director Andrew McEvoy urged travellers intending to holiday in Queensland to continue with their plans to visit the state, or if they didn't already have a booking, to consider taking a Queensland holiday.
"The recent floods and cyclone made news around the world, but Queensland is a big state (668,207 square miles including its islands) and the majority of the top holiday spots are looking as beautiful as ever and are operating normally," Mr McEvoy said.
"Unfortunately some travellers have been cancelling their Queensland holidays thanks to the coverage of the recent weather. But the truth is that most of Queensland's tourism infrastructure has been unaffected," Mr McEvoy said.
