    Coolangatta is the southernmost coastal city in Queensland. Once a small town comprised of freed convicts and early European settlers, Coolangatta has grown from a town of timber getters, cane farmers and fisherman, into a bustling seaside resort city, attracting visitors from around the world.

    Boasting beautiful beaches and headlands, Coolangatta has been a popular holiday spot for most of its history, frequented by locals and overseas tourists alike. Whilst visiting, you can see turtles while scuba diving or go bushwalking through the Macpherson rainforest to the peak of Mount Warning that overlooks the Tweed Head River valley and coastline. Part of Queensland's Gold Coast, Coolangatta is a short drive from all of the area's attractions, yet is peaceful enough for a relaxing weekend away, or holiday with the kids.

    If you are travelling with the family head north to the famous Gold Coast theme parks, packed with water slides, games and rides, there's fun to be had for the whole family. Get up close and personal with seals and dolphins at Seaworld, be part of the movie action at Warner Brothers Movie World, or head to Wet'n'Wild Water World to cool off in a wave pool. A recent addition to the area's attractions is the Australian Outback Spectacular, where you can watch impressive displays of horse riding, and skills you would find in the outback while enjoying a meal and beverage.

    Drive your hire car about forty minutes north and visit Surfers Paradise, famous for its shopping and perfect for celebrity spotting. Finish your day of shopping and exploring with dinner on the beach and make sure to try some of the local seafood, which is caught daily by fishing boats that are based in Tweed River.

    Continuing north you will reach Brisbane. Here you can travel to Kangaroo point and enjoy a picnic or go rock climbing, abseiling and kayaking. Tourists can also visit St Stephens Cathedral, the City Botanic Gardens, and Parliament house or take a ride of the Wheel of Brisbane that allows you to observe the city and Brisbane River from above. Hervey Bay is further north and has spectacular beaches with crystal blue waters, golden sand and an array of wildlife. Visitors can enjoy fishing, swimming and relaxing in this tropical paradise or learn about Hervey Bay's fascinating history at the Hervey Bay Historical Village and Museum.
