With Summer not too far away, now is the perfect time for you to plan a trip down to the vacay state to enjoy the best of the tropical weather and gorgeous beaches in Queensland.

There’s so much to do in the Sunshine State, whether you’re up in the northern end or down the west coast, Queensland offers plentiful summer activities for everyone to enjoy. Let’s look at some popular destinations that you can go by yourself, with a partner or friend or even with the whole family.

Gold Coast 

Of course if you're going to the Gold Coast it is a given, you have to visit the Village Roadshow Theme Parks. Being the biggest collection of thrill rides, slides and shows in the southern hemisphere you’ll never get bored amongst the 115 and more activities. All located fairly close to each other, there is Warner Bros Movie World, Wet n Wild, Sea World, Paradise Country, The Australian Outback Spectacular’s Heartland and Topgolf.

The Whitsundays 

Another well loved destination in Queensland is the Whitsundays allocated in the heart of the Great Barrier Reef. This entire destination encompasses numerous other attractions such as Whitehaven Beach, Heart Reef, the Whitsunday islands itself and the Great Barrier Reef. Most of the attraction sites around this area offer activities like scuba diving, bareboating, sailing, kayaking and ocean rafting, which is best undertaken in the gorgeous summer sunshine.

With the new Osmo Action 3 recently released by DJI before the summer season, this makes the perfect pairing for taking with you to these tropical holiday destinations. The new waterproof design enables you to take it anywhere, including into contact with or even submerged in water. With an additional waterproofing casing the Action 3’s underwater capabilities extends from a depth of 16m to 60m. With its stunning 4K 120fps camera you can record the plethora of coral reefs and diverse sea life in clarity so you never ever miss out on capturing your underwater adventures again.

Sunshine Coast

If you want to get away from the crowds and prefer a quieter alternative to the Gold Coast city, head down to the Sunshine coast.

These sites are international sights of excellence known for their natural beauty so don’t miss out on this stop if you’re looking for some scenic exploration destinations.

Regions like the Sunshine Coast are perfect destinations to take your drone out to.
