21 Wonderful Things to Do in Mission Beach, Queensland
Never Ending Voyage Blog
by Erin

Mission Beach is a blissfully relaxed beach town in Tropical North Queensland far from the hustle and bustle of Cairns and Port Douglas. It’s made up of four coastal villages linked by 14 kilometres of idyllic (mostly empty) golden beach fringed by palm trees—a quintessential tropical paradise. While most people come here for relaxation, there are enough things to do in Mission Beach to keep you busy including rainforest walks, wildlife spotting (it’s one of the best places to see the unique cassowary bird), and snorkelling trips to a quiet section of the outer Great Barrier Reef.

Bedarra Island Resort Review: Barefoot Luxury in North Queensland
Never Ending Voyage Blog
by Erin
5M ago
Bedarra Island Resort describes itself as barefoot luxury and we agree. Its luxury lies in its secluded location, on an island that feels like it’s all for you, and its exclusivity with just 12 villas hidden amongst the rainforest overlooking beautiful, empty beaches. With just 24 guests (adults-only), Bedarra offers a personalised experience that’s rare to find. We felt thoroughly spoilt with delicious meals, free-flowing wine and cocktails (all included), and attentive service. The resort doesn’t feel stuffy or fancy, though. There’s no dress code, the staff is happy to chat over a cocktail ..read more

Never Ending Voyage Blog

Driving off-road around K’gari (Fraser Island) is one of the most fun adventures we had in Queensland, Australia. We cruised on long beaches and bumped down sandy forest tracks, swam in a turquoise lake and floated in a crystal clear creek, hiked down sand dunes and through rainforest, and spotted the iconic dingo. K’gari is a special place—it’s the world’s largest sand island (122km long) and is UNESCO World Heritage-listed for its unique landscapes. It’s the only location on Earth where subtropical rainforests grow entirely on sand, and it’s home to half the world’s perched freshwater lakes ..read more

Noosa National Park is a highlight of the beautiful beach town of Noosa on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast. The free park features stunning coastal and forest trails, quiet beaches, and plenty of birds and wildlife, all easily accessible from Noosa Main Beach. Don’t expect to have the trails to yourself as it’s popular with locals and visitors for walks, runs, and surfing. You can find quiet spots, though, especially if you head inland. Sunrise is my favourite time to visit. During my three months in Noosa, I visited the park many times for runs and walks. In this post, I share the best walks in ..read more

As appealing as the Sunshine Coast’s beaches are, it’s well worth tearing yourself away for a day (or preferably longer) to explore the Sunshine Coast Hinterland.

19 Amazing Things to Do on North Stradbroke Island, Queensland
Never Ending Voyage Blog
by Erin
9M ago
North Stradbroke Island (Minjerribah) is affectionately known as Straddie to locals, reflecting the relaxed vibe of island life that’s so different from the nearby, much busier Gold Coast. Despite being located in Moreton Bay, only 30km southeast of Brisbane, it flies under the radar for many visitors to Queensland. It’s well worth visiting, though, even on a day trip, or ideally for a few days for a relaxing break. Most of the island is undeveloped so a trip here is all about nature—lazing on the golden beaches, walking the North Gorge coastal trail, surfing and swimming and even scuba divin ..read more
