This sandy island located near Hervey Bay on the southern coast of Queensland is a world heritage site and an ideal getaway for winter season.  With the day time temperatures in the mid 20s, this pleasant spot has over 100 freshwater lakes, white sandy beaches and ancient rainforests that are a complete treat for the eyes. During the winters, the weather is quite comfortably warm in the day time, and the evenings are just about cool enough for a pleasant nap. Nothing can beat the feeling of soaking up the winter sun right at the edge of the lake McKenzie with a glass of beer in hand and a good company.

Feel the summer at The Whitsundays

If you are looking to escape the chilled weather to someplace more comforting and warm just like the summers, The Whitsundays can make your day with a massive stretch of marine life and coral reefs on offer. Known to be the most popular yachting destination in Southern Hemisphere, it has numerous wide beaches, hiking trails and dense forests that make up a thrilling recipe for an adventure. Take your snorkel kits and hit one of the beautiful beaches for a heavenly experience. The tracks across the islands are connected by seaways suited for power-boating, kayaking or sailing. There are 8 camping areas spread across 3 islands with large resorts and fun activities on offer.

Touch the heights at the Mount Barney National Park

Situated 90 km southwest of Brisbane, this park is dominated by the grand twin ranges of the Mount Barney and surrounded by numerous peaks, woodland forests, deep rock pools, steep valleys, rainforest vegetation and historical caves. The weather in winter is soothing to say the least, and the summit offers expansive views of the scenic Rim forests and the Border Ranges. This peak is an old bushwalking destination with more than 30 routes leading to the east and west summits.  The nearby Mount Maroon is a popular spot for rock climbing and also known for its eucalypt shrublands. The park has a very rare plant vegetation and abundant birdlife.  

Go whale watching at the Hervey Bay

Winter is a great time to spot the majestic humpback whales from the Hervey Bay, as you watch them dive and play. There is a dedicated catamaran especially for people to enjoy close encounters from underwater windows or the viewing platform. As you head out to catch the view, listen to the live commentary about the whales and the environment in which they thrive. There are hydrophones fitted everywhere inside the catamaran so that you can hear the sounds made by the whale. Whale-watching cruise guarantees whale sighting, but in case you fail to spot one, you can have another day on the cruise free of cost.

Sunbathe at the Sunshine Coast

With a pleasant climate throughout the year, one cannot look for a better winter getaway than the Sunshine Coast on the northern fringes of Brisbane.  Beaches with pristine waters stretch across the region and the nature reserve blossoms with mangrove forests. The regional markets are an exciting amalgamation of artworks, fresh produces and chic crafted items designed by local people.

Some of the popular markets include Cotton Tree Market, Noosa Farmers Market, Eumundi Markets and the Peregian Beach Market. Pathway from Mooloolaba to Maroochydore on waterfront walking track will take you on a ride to a host of buzzing activities across the coast. Spot the wallabies, kangaroos and birds as you take a cruise to Maroochy Wetland Sanctuary on the Maroochy River. Once you are exhausted, head towards the Twin Waters for a peaceful surf break in the soothingly warm waters.

Day out at the Parklands

Nothing can make for a wonderful winter evening in Queensland like exploring the 70-hectare lush lawns of the South Bank Parklands. Enjoy witnessing the soft white sands moulding into a clear lagoon, as you take a bite of hot grilled BBQ in a cool atmosphere. With a glitzy collection of art, designer items, homewares, jewelleries and ornaments, the flashy markets add to the charm of the Parklands.

Climb the Mount Tamborine

One of iconic peaks in the region of Queensland, the Mount Tamborine provides a splendid hilltop base to experience breathtaking views of the gushing waterfalls and lush green rainforest. Sweat it out as you make your way through a 22 km walking trail and explore the other mountains clustered together in the Gold Coast hinterlands. Apart from an exhilarating climbing experience, some of the finest galleries, craft shops, and boutique wineries await you on the way. If you are looking for some adventurous experience, go for hang gliding to jump off the cliff as your adrenaline rushes in excitement.

Coral Coast Scenic Drive

Sometimes a long drive is all it takes to unwind your stiffen skin during the winters. Make your way through the narrow country roads as you witness the lush greens change into a sea of blue. The Coral Coast is a gateway to the Great Barrier Reef and stretches across a distance of 140 km with deep rock pools, golden sand, beautiful beaches and fresh air. Stop for a swim in the warm waters of one of the pristine beaches or grab some fresh fish fries by the seaside. Don’t forget to get a carton of beer to keep yourself full and warm throughout the ride.
