Cycle a Rail TrailView trips

Encompassing the entire north-east of Australia, the “Sunshine State” of Queensland offers visitors a staggering variety of landscapes and experiences.

There’s sunburnt outback, lush hinterland valleys, forest-clad mountain ranges and thundering waterfalls, the World Heritage listed treasures of the Wet Tropics Rainforest and the Great Barrier Reef, and almost 7000 km of coastline—home to some of the world’s most beautiful beaches and tropical islands.

One of the highlights is cycling the stunning Brisbane Valley Rail Trail, with its delicious local food and wine, classic Australian scenery, and historic towns and villages.

The climate in Queensland can range from comfortable and cool temperatures in the southeast, to hot and humid temperatures in the far north. Unlike Australia's southern states, Queensland rarely suffers from the chilly cold during winter, which makes a visit to the Sunshine State ideal at any time of the year. On the coastline, summer bringss highs of 28 degrees and lows of 20 degrees. In winter these temperatures can drop to 20 degrees and 9 degrees. Further north, Tropical North Queensland has temperatures that are much more humid and hot than the southern regions, with summer temperatures reaching over 31 degrees during the day, with humidity levels that reach over 75%. During winter, temperatures drop to a comfortable 26 degrees, and with less rainfall, this is an ideal time to visit the northern region of the state.
