Top Tropical Island Getaways in Queensland

Vacations islands are the choice of many travelers after a long tired time of work. Travelers will feel especially comfortable when sitting on white sandy beaches in a tropical island getaway. Enjoy the sunshine, wind and flavor of the sea are not something you need dream in Queensland in Australia. Queensland gives travelers chances to enjoy life in affordable tropical island getaways.

Daydream Island

As the name suggests, Daydream Island is one of the best island getaway to relax all day and night. There are plenty of things to keep little ones occupied with jungle gyms, pools, giant chess, mini golf and an open-air cinema. While the kids are distracted, the adults can take a stroll through the rainforest before retiring to the Lagoon bar, or simply hide away and relax at the Daydream Rejuvenation Spa.

Besides, Daydream Island has lots of secluded hideouts and pristine near-private beaches. Stroll down the beachside boardwalk hand in hand, find a private spot at Lovers Cove or simply sit back and enjoy the sunshine at the Splashes Pool Bar.

Magnetic Island

Find yourself drawn to Magnetic Island – or Maggie Island, as it’s known to the locals – with plenty of sandy strips to relax on, or plenty to keep you going for the action-oriented traveller. A short 20-minute ferry ride from Townsville in northern Queensland, Maggie Island feels like it’s in the middle of nowhere, but it’s not actually all that isolated.

The island itself boasts 23 immaculate bays and beaches plus a number of walking tracks, and offers water sports, jet skiing, snorkelling and great fishing.

For the party-goers, Magnetic Island is home to the only monthly Full Moon Party in Australia, where you can dance the night away to local and international DJs, spinning their tunes right on the beach.

Fraser Island

Known mostly for its population of dingoes, Fraser Island has a lot more to offer than simply spotting this four-legged native animal. There are plenty of water sports, outdoor activities, guided and self-guided hikes and tours, fishing holes and, of course, beaches.

For the weary traveller who’s looking for a little ‘me time’, book into the Kingfisher Natural Therapies salon for a massage, a facial and a big dose of relaxation and rejuvenation.

Heron Island

On the edge of the Great Barrier Reef, Heron Island is a nature-lover’s dream. There’s plenty to do, from simply relaxing on the beach to snorkelling on the outer reef, meaning there’s always some activity on offer to suit everyone’s tastes and energy levels.
