There is so much more to Queensland than that seemingly endless green and blue stretch of coastline.
Those who venture beyond the coast are rewarded by beauty, history, and human warmth.
Western Queensland has inspired writers and artists for centuries. It has lured the brave, the hardy and the most determined. The outback is the stuff of legends and more are created every day. Could there be a better place to inspire and motivate a team?
There has never been a better time to visit. The best rain in a century means the region is bursting with life. Dry gullies have become flowing rivers and desert plains are grassy fields. The rain has made the people of the outback exuberant – and especially eager to share their unique part of the world.
Cattle stations are ready to welcome guests. Even the most jaded executive will feel invigorated after a day in the saddle and a night under the stars.
The variety of activities in Queensland is as vast as the landscape, and as individual as your delegates.
Want to bring delegates down to earth? Suggest a therapeutic mud bath at the tiny town of Eulo.
Looking for a story to inspire? Visit the humble beginnings of a great airline at the Qantas Founders Museum at Longreach.
Are delegates looking for clarity? Observe the stars through clear outback skies, magnificently magnified through the Meade telescope at the Cosmos Centre and Observatory in Charleville.
Need a little perspective? At Lark Quarry, visitors can see the tracks of a dinosaur stampede that took place 95 million years ago.
And it’s probable delegates will say they’ve never eaten better. Freshwater crayfish (known as yabbies) cooked just minutes after being pulled from crystal clear creeks. Beef steaks and succulent lamb barbecued with unmatchable flavour. Icy cold beer poured in an outback tastes better when served with the publican’s tales. When Western Queenslanders get together, they make the most of it (wouldn’t you if your nearest neighbour was 200 kilometres away?) so festivals and celebrations are an important part of life. Any excuse to party – Chinchilla toasts its major crop at the annual Melon Festival. Tara honours the camel. Every town has something to celebrate and visitors are always welcome to join the fun. But there is still more to Queensland. Toowoomba, on the hills above the Darling Downs, just west of Brisbane, is famous for its flowers.
Visitors are surprised and delighted when they discover the ‘Granite Belt’ an exciting wine-growing region, southwest of Brisbane. Wineries, restaurants and boutique guesthouses offer European-style luxury with a quintessentially Queensland flavour.
Whether you are looking to immerse your group in an outback experience or want to offer a tasting plate of beach, bush and big city, you will find it in Queensland.Contact Details Sample Itineraries
