Golden surf beaches and towering cliffs line the coast of Queensland, with a lush hinterland of rainforest beyond. Just offshore, a trail of islands and coral atolls leads the way from bustling Brisbane in the south to tropical Cairns in the far north.

Cruise passengers may spot whales, dolphins and even dugongs, turtles and manta rays from the ship, and on shore take a crocodile tour, visit a turtle hospital, or spot koalas in the trees on Magnetic Island. Queensland’s Indigenous cultural experiences range from beach walks to rainforest and art tours, to famous dance experiences. Talk to your cruise lines about excursions.
