Our favourite things to do in Queensland during spring

12th Oct 2020

Spring is well and truly in the air in Queensland. With beautiful warm days and mild nights, it is a great time to explore the region and all that is on offer.

We’ve rounded up some of our favourite things to do in Queensland during spring to inspire your next family holiday or long weekend road trip.

Go whale watching  

Spring is peak whale watching time in Queensland. From July to November each year, humpback whales make Queensland their home as they migrate from to the Antarctic.  The best place to catch these beautiful mammals? The serene and protected waters of Hervey Bay!

Enjoy happy hour at Brisbane’s best rooftop bars fun in queens

The stunning spring weather equals the perfect happy hour weather, and Brisbane has some of the best rooftop bars for punters to enjoy. If you are in the area for your holidays, make sure you check out bars including The Stock Exchange Rooftop, Dandy’s Rooftop and Lennons Pool Terrace.

Explore Queensland’s National Parks

The beautiful Queensland weather goes hand in hand with exploring the outdoors, and with plenty of National Parks across the state, spring is the best time to make the most of them. We love the Girraween National Park, which is full of native flowers at this time of year, and the Noosa National Park which has some of the best hikes and walks going around. Finally, we can’t go past the Lamington National Park (near Brisbane) and the Daintree National Park (near Cairns).

Check out the many farmers markets across the state

One of the best parts of springtime in Queensland is the delicious treats on offer at farmers markets. From fresh fruit like mangoes and peaches to some exquisite seafood, there is nothing better than spending the day roaming a farmer’s market. Our favourites? The Noosa Farmers Market, Gold Coast Organic Market in Miami and Urangan Pier Market in Hervey Bay.

Get active and soak up some water activities

From kayaking in Far North Queensland to jet skiing along the Noosa river, spring is the best time to hit up Queensland’s waterways. The beaches tend to me a little less crowded (outside the school holidays) and the water is warm enough for you to make the most of the day. One of our favourite activities? Paddle boarding down the Noosa River at sunset – what a dream.
