Queensland is a territory in north-east Australia blessed with one of the most incredible natural wonders in the world. In the depths of the Coral Sea off the Queensland coast is the Great Barrier Reef, a unique one-thousand four-hundred mile long coral reef system swarming with unusual marine life. The state’s attractions are not confined to the water either. From the McPherson Range of rainforest-covered mountains, to the Atherton Tablelands with its rivers and waterfalls, to its beach-rimmed coastline and off-shore tropical islands, Queensland is a veritable utopia. That’s a fact that even the koalas in the Lone Pine Sanctuary totally agree with – as long as they’re given a plentiful supply of gum leaves to chew on.
