Written by people who’ve lived in and explored the region for over two decades, this is the only guide you need if you want to find the places locals love. Steer clear of the crowds and get to know the real TNQ. Explore Tropical North Queensland and the Great Barrier Reef like a local!
100 Things to See in Tropical North Queensland is the only guide for travellers who aren’t tourists that covers the best of the far north and Great Barrier Reef, written by people who live there. This remarkable part of Australia is home to the oldest rainforest on earth, the world’s largest living organism, and three world heritage sites, and that’s just the beginning.
In this guide, author and travel journalist Catherine Lawson, along with partner and photographer, David Bristow, take anyone wanting to explore Tropical North Queensland like a local into the places off the regular tourist trails. Both have spent more than 20 years travelling their backyard by foot, 4WD, train, bike, and even in their sailing yacht, Wild One.
100 Things To See In Tropical North Queensland showcases 100 of the best things to see when people travel to the Great Barrier Reef, Cairns, Port Douglas, the Daintree, the Cassowary Coast, Atherton Tablelands, Cape York and The Gulf Country (plus a few more the authors snuck in). It’s a guide about what to do and where to go, rather than where to sleep or who serves the hippest cocktails.
Inside, you’ll find 100 of the best places and things to see and do at the top of Queensland – from dream-like swimming holes to undisturbed rock-art galleries and outback adventures you’ll never forget.
