Most of the 22 million visitors coming to Queensland each year aim straight for the coast.
And who can blame them? You’ve got Gold Coast and Brisbane in the south and Cairns in the north – plus a necklace of sandy beaches, tropical rainforests and wildlife-friendly islands in-between.
But look beyond the Queensland coast, and you’ll come across mountain ranges, historic cities and lively rodeo towns set in the desolate red wilderness of the Australian Outback.
To get there, just hop on a flight from Perth to Queensland. The journey time is usually between 4 and 10 hours long.

Then there’s the Outback. Mount Isa is one of the oldest mining towns in Queensland – a lively oasis in the middle of the dusty red wilderness.
