South East Queensland.

South East Queensland encompasses the Queensland Capital, Brisbane and surrounding areas from The Sunshine Coast in the north to The Gold Coast on the NSW border and takes in the hinterland areas to the foot of the Darling Downs. The area meets the coast on Morton Bay and some 350 islands which lie in the bay help to make up a very diverse mix of holiday and tourist environments.

If you make your base in any of the major centres, Brisbane, Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast, Toowoomba or the Lockyer Valley, you are within a very pleasant two to three hour drive of the rest of them, with many days and weeks of great holiday adventure in the offering.

Explore the wonders of city life, surfing, diving, fishing, sight seeing, whale watching, the world class beaches, bush walking, rural beauty, the list is endless. If you can conceive of the attraction South East Queensland can provide it.
