An Introduction to Queensland’s Amazing Features

courtesy-of-tourism-tropical-north-queenslandQueensland is one of Australia’s most populous cities. If you are still oblivious of what this north-east town has in store for you, then hopefully we can successfully convince you to book that plane ticket to Queensland and get your bags ready for a new kind of exploration. To say that Queensland is beautiful is underrated, it’s more than that!

WANDERING WITH MOTHER NATUREdaintree-national-rainforestOkay, you have heard about the Great Barrier Reef and about the Kangaroos as it is what advertisements often show when they’re introducing the place to the public. Sure, some well-known actors have also lived in here but did you know that it’s also where a lot of rainforests exist? We won’t judge if you don’t. But it is about time that you do. Explore the deepest parts of the jungle with professional guides and understand why nature can always defeat man-made creations when it comes to beauty and serenity. Whether it is the land or the water activity you prefer, there’s always something new to learn.

HOME OF THE LARGE THEME PARKScassowary-daintree-rainforestNamed as the theme park capital, Queensland is also where the major amusement parks are located such as Sea World, Dreamworld, and WhiteWater World. The Gold Coast isn’t going to let you feel bored because with Dreamworld alone, it will feel like you’re circling around the world literally. Of course, theme park attractions are also present. For example, in Wet N’ Wild, they have giant wave pools and newly built water slides and in Movie World, the greatest Warner Bros. characters are roaming around to impress kids and play with them.  

RICH HISTORY800px-statelibqld_1_159663_woody_point_shoreline_ca-_1876To honor Queen Victoria, the state was named Queensland and it is continuously making more history even on this day. Although it seems like Queensland has the richest soil where rainforests continuously grow, it actually experienced a five-year drought from 1898 to 1903, and it wasn’t even until 1870 that the free primary education was introduced to the country. These are just a few of the fun facts you’ll hear from its lively locals or from the people working at museums. Getting in touch with its history is another way to experience the beauty of the state.

BEACHES, BEACHES, BEACHES11Need we say more? Summer is just around the corner and so are the beaches in Queensland. From Palm Cove to Nudey Beach, spotting clear waters and radiant sands are easy. This is why it isn’t surprising that plenty of tourists gather here every year to party and get their tans. Even locals don’t get tired of its beaches so why should we? The visual delight you get from everything that these Queensland beaches has to offer can be easily captured.

Convincing someone to visit a place isn’t easy especially if the town barely has anything unique to offer. But with Queensland, it’s a different story. What makes it better is that booking for activities is also made easy through our website where tourists can score low-cost deals that won’t sacrifice the fun and comfort of their chosen activities!

Budget Friendly Activities in Taupo, New Zealand

Travelling is exciting. There’s always something new for us to experience once we start seeing the world using a new set of lens. But travelling can also be expensive. Free travel can be rarely experienced unless you frequently join a contest that rewards a trip of a lifetime. When we start thinking about the expenses needed for a certain trip, our minds often produce another choice: stay at home. Who doesn’t love that?cairns_activity_combosThe question is, are we willing to invest on international and local trips for the sake of relaxation and experiencing something new? Hopefully, you choose yes.

Fortunately, cheaper alternatives can be found. Instead of paying thousands of dollars for a five-star hotel room, we can opt to cheaper hostels that don’t sacrifice our comfort. Instead of buying expensive plane tickets that leave the next day, we can be smart and book ahead to secure seat sales. And instead of just spending a lot of cash on activities, we can also consider looking for free and cheap things to do in places like Taupo, New Zealand.

  • Rent a Kayak and Use Your Muscles

Some rental Kayaks will be pricey, but the cheap ones that cost less than $40 per hour can be a good deal. Lake Taupo is large and you will need more than an hour to get around but it doesn’t mean 1 hour of kayaking won’t be fun.

  • Walk Short Trails

The Huka Falls is not something we should ignore as tourists. Its beauty is beyond imagination and you don’t even need to pay for hiking fee in order to see it. Along the way, the Waikato River is a bonus view you shouldn’t miss. You can ask for directions from locals and from backpackers in the area.

  • Experience Free Spa in Otomuheke Stream, Spa Park

After a day of trekking and walking, dipping your tired body at the natural geothermal hot spring will satisfy you. The spa does not have staff walking around to accompany you and there are no rooms for you to change. Your valuables will be under your care. The public park will continue to be open for many if its visitors will continue to take care of it. Bring your own towel and refrain from polluting the area by leaving your trash.

  • Hopefully, You Know How to Use a Bicycle

If you do, rent one, bring your hat, and wear comfortable clothes because it is going to be one hell of an adventure. You can roam around the Taupo town center, visit the nearest beaches and the places mentioned above without spending a lot of cash on bus tours.

Familiarize Taupo before embarking. Touring around the place can be confusing and we should avoid getting lost at all cost. If possible, save a little cash for emergencies so that you’ll be able to go home after experiencing the magnificence of Taupo. Don’t go home without a good photo! After all, one of the best ways to preserve memories is to capture the beautiful moments and scenes.
