Whether it is one of the myriad day walks through national parks, a ride on a world-rated mountain-bike trail system or a paddle in a river or the ocean, the sheer volume of choice is nearly too much. We’ve made it easier for you by selecting some of the very best experiences.
Think Tropical North Queensland and invariably diving the Great Barrier Reef comes to mind, but head to the hills and you’ll soon see that this area has so much more adventure on offer.
Australian Geographic OUTDOOR Editor, Justin Walker, visited Tropical North Queensland recently as part of Tourism TNQ’s “Paradise Through Your Lens” competition, in his role as judge and mentor. Justin followed some of the 10 finalists around the region as they shot footage for their short film entries. During his four days up north, Justin mentored these finalists and also photographed some of the area’s spectacular locations and residents.
