Overview

Insight Regional Guide Queensland and the Great Barrier Reef offers comprehensive travel advice for what to do and where to go in one of Australia’s most fascinating destinations. Engaging and inspirational History and Culture chapters explain the region’s aboriginal past, and the factors influencing its future; from colonial heritage to the impact of the flooding of 2011. The burgeoning arts and crafts scene, stunning landscape and local surf culture are fully explored so that visitors can gain a sense of how Queensland’s distinctive character and culture has been shaped. The Places chapters cover the cities of Brisbane and Cairns in detail, and suggest excursions to the beaches and reefs around the coast to help with planning a trip. Be inspired by full-color travel photography throughout, illustrating the vibrancy of Queensland more than any other travel guide to the area on the market and giving a true flavor of life in the region today. Detailed maps throughout the book help visitors get around the different areas, with all major sites cross-referenced with the text, and the Travel Tips offer selective advice on where to stay, what to eat and the great range of outdoor activities.
