Hello my friends, have you been getting an itch for a domestic vacation? Well, look no further because Virgin is slinging cheap as heck flights to Queensland right now.
For as low as $69, you can score yourself one-way tickets to your next Queensland vacay.
But let’s say you’ve been to Queensland before – what is there left to do? You’ve gone on the theme park rides, been to Surfer’s Paradise, or maybe went and island hopped the Whitsunday. You might come away thinking you’ve seen all that Queensland has to offer, right?
Well like a cool teacher in a John Hughes movie about to tell you the moral of the film, I’m here to tell you that you may want to reconsider that perspective.
For us fellow globe enthusiasts (the ones that come with Tasmania on them), we know that Queensland is absolutely huge (like 15 million Godzilla’s huge) and to reduce a trip to just one tiny portion of it cannot capture the breadth of the state.
With hot summer days dwindling down more and more in Melbourne and Sydney, sun lovers will be happy to know that Queensland’s winters last shorter than your worst hook-up.
If you’re a beach body who constantly hears the call of the ocean, Queensland is the state to be in. With countless beaches perfect for surfers, or ocean tours if you wanna take a deeper dive into your love for the water.
But if you’re a Gossip Girl on the hunt for a good sale or the best inner-city cafe, the city life of Queensland is well documented. Brisbane in particular is known for its colourful storytelling through street art and its wide food variety, so you’re bound to have a deep cultural and delicious foodie trip.
Queensland is also known for its rich national parks that make for amazing hiking spots thanks to their great green scenery. There are also plenty of options for beginners with flat trails as well if your knees have been putting off hiking for awhile now.
Summer is the most social season of the year though, and if you’re an introvert like me, you may have your eyes set on the idea of a rainforest treehouse. Yes, seclude yourself from society and return to monke in this wonderful eco-friendly treehouse at the Daintree Ecolodge where you get to just switch off and live your best yoga dreams.
So if you’re in dire need of a lovely getaway, whether it’s just by yourself to recharge your social batteries, or with your favourite group chat, this quick summer send-off is surely a great decision to make. But don’t sit around making empty commitments! Be sure to book in soon, as these cheap flight deals only last from the 13th until the 20th of February.Image: iStock / swissmediavision
