Mimicking the curves of Queensland’s east coast, coming as close as 15km to shore, the World Heritage–listed Great Barrier Reef is the largest coral reef system in the world and host to more than 900 tropical islands. Divers delight in its unbelievable sights – rich navy blue butterfly fish, luminescent pastel turkfish, teeny neon damsels, six-banded angelfish are all on display, not to mention whales, dolphins, dugongs, six species of sea turtles, sharks, giant clams and more.
To see what’s under the sea, book yourself a boat trip. The reef mecca ofCairns is the main hub for explorations, with dozens of options from quick-fire day trips to inner-reef atolls to longer trips to pristine outer-reef sites and overnight sailing voyages to isolated dive locations. Strap on a snorkel and some fins and splash into the deep blue sea to explore some of the greatest biodiversity of anywhere on earth: swimming into this hyper-coloured spectacle of coral and tropical fish, it’s easy to see why the reef is one of the world’s seven natural wonders.
Meanwhile, Port Douglas makes for another great gateway to the reef, offering ritzy accommodation and dining to boot. Port Douglas also has a flotilla of boats waiting to whizz you out to reef highlights like Low Isles and Agincourt Reef, an outer ribbon reef featuring crystal-clear water and stunning corals.
Exploring the Great Barrier Reef from above
For those unprepared to take the full plunge, there are plenty of other ways to explore the reef. Some operators offer day trips in glass-bottomed boats, through which you can peer down into the watery world below – a cinematic experience! Short on time? Take a scenic flight from Cairns or the Whitsundays for a macro-perspective of the reef’s beauty and size. Another dry-footed option is a reef walk. Some southern sections of the reef are exposed at low tide, allowing you to amble across the reeftops on sandy tracks between the coral: try Heron Island.
The Whitsunday Islands – halfway up Queensland’s coast – are Australia’s promised land of tropical atolls, spinnakers and daiquiri-soaked resort nights. This improbably photogenic archipelago comprises 74 islands with sleeping options from the luxe resorts on Hayman, Daydream and Hamilton islands to the budget beds on Hook Island. Book your Whitsundays sailing trip from the constant party town of Airlie Beach, the Whitsundays’ gateway town: a yacht is the perfect way to cast yourself away on an untrammelled arc of white sand, and the Whitsundays boast an enticing string of fringing coral reefs.
The Capricorn Coast also hosts some fab little isles, less touristy than those further north. Try Lady Elliot Island for snorkelling and wildlife watching – it’s the best place on the Reef to see manta rays. Great Keppel offers unpretentious accommodation and relaxed vibes, while the tiny, tranquil coral cay (and diving mecca) of Island Heron offers a traditional family resort experience.
Queensland’s islands aren’t all swaying palms and swimming pools. A few hundred kilometres north of Brisbane is World Heritage–listedFraser Island, the world’s largest sand island (1840 square kilometres). Hire a 4WD, pack a snorkel and ferry across to Fraser’s glorious beaches, shipwrecks, forests, fresh-water lakes and rampant native wildlife, including wallabies, dingoes, echidnas, birds of prey and myriad reptiles. Resorts here are low-key, and you could even just bring a tent for beach camping under the stars.
The 1200-square-kilometre Daintree Rainforest is a remarkable place full of 3000 plant species and countless birds, bugs and crocs. A World Heritage site itself, it’s the biggest single tract of tropical rainforest in Australia, and home to more native wildlife than seems plausible. Here, the green forest seems to tumble down towards the brilliant white-sand coastline and visitors are enveloped by birdsong, fan palms, mangroves and constant conversations of frogs. Activities are endless, but they include wildlife-spotting tours, mountain treks, interpretive boardwalks, tropical-fruit orchard tours, canopy walks, 4WD trips, horse riding, kayaking and cruises.
Getting to the Daintree is half the fun – the super-scenic drive from Cairns to Cape Tribulation is a real show-stopper. The Great Barrier Reef Drive, as it’s now known, clings to the coastline and passes some awesome beaches.
If you’re seeking culture, you’ll want to head straight to Brisbane, Queensland’s buzzy big smoke. Folded into the elbows of the meandering Brisbane River and home to 2.3 million Queenslanders, ‘Brizzy’ is an energetic city on the rise, with edgy arts, buzzing nightlife and simmering coffee culture (check into Brew for a perfect cup). Its bourgeoning restaurant scene (E’cco is a must, the Gunshop Café is a quirky and locally sourced treat) focuses on global palates and open-air seating whenever possible. Brisbanites rise with the sun to tackle activities from jogging and cycling to kayaking and rock-climbing.
But it might be the Brisbane River itself that gives the city its edge. The river’s organic convolutions carve the city into a patchwork of urban villages, each with a distinct style and topography: bohemian, low-lying West End; hip, hilltop Paddington,; exclusive, peninsular New Farm, prim, pointy Kangaroo Point. Move from village to village and experience Queensland’s diverse, eccentric, happening capital.
The 1240km Carretera Austral (Southern Highway) is the only way in and out of Aysén by land. It stretches from the fishing hub of Puerto Montt in the north all the way down until it peters out in the frontier gaucho town of Villa O’Higgins in the south. Bumbling down the Carretera Austral’s bumpy terrain past rainforested hills and foggy fjords has become one of the most iconic road trips in South America. But it’s a journey you’ll want to do sooner rather than later.
Now is the time to visit the glaciers that shaped this dramatic landscape before they disappear. Sandwiched between the Northern and Southern Patagonian Ice Fields (collectively the world’s third-largest source of fresh water), Aysén is rightfully known as the epicenter of Chilean glacier country. Half of its land is protected in public and private parks (including the newly opened Patagonia Park, created by the late North Face founder Doug Tompkins), and the region is home to a fair chunk of Chile’s 24,133 glaciers.
Many of these magnificent cascades of fast-flowing ice are receding at alarming rates of up to 15 meters per year. But there is a bit of good news: It’s never been easier to see them thanks to new routes developed by local tour operators in recent years to help increase awareness of what we stand to lose.
Here’s how you can explore five of the most impressive glaciers within Chile’s little-visited Aysén region using the Carretera Austral as an artery through Northern Patagonia.
On the northern edge of Aysén within the evergreen forests of Parque Nacional Queulat, you’ll find one of Chile’s most recognizable glaciers: Ventisquero Colgante. This so-called “hanging glacier” has receded so far from the ground below that it’s now perched atop a cliff, spewing its meltwater over the edge into the powder blue Laguna Tempanos. Pack a picnic lunch and hike the 6km out-and-back Moraine Trail to get the best up-close views. You can also arrange a trip with Experiencia Australto kayak on Laguna Tempanos right up toward the base of the glacier. If you’re feeling a bit sore after either journey, you can rest your weary bones in Termas del Ventisquero, a series of hot springs near the park entrance. Its four pools are on the shores of the Puyuhuapi Fjord, whose glacier-fed waters will be noticeably cooler for those daring enough to take a dip.
Take a slight detour from the Carretera Austral at Puerto Rio Tranquilo (the location of the mesmerizing marble caves of Lago General Carrera) to dip into Valle Exploradores and check out its namesake glacier. This new road leads to the river crossing for the San Rafael Lagoon and is a stunner with sweeping valley views, raging river rapids and human-sized nalca leaves fighting for attention. However, the real showstopper lies 52km in at the Glacier Exploradores Overlook, which offers not only a wide-open panorama of the glacier, but also a peek at the vast white abyss that is the Northern Patagonian Ice Field. Exploradores is but one of 17 glaciers that call this ice field home, and the short 25-minute hike up to the observation deck is your easiest access point to take it all in.
You’ll need to book a tour back in Puerto Rio Tranquilo to reach the remote San Rafael Lagoon, home of Aysén’s most enigmatic glacier. The journey requires transport on both sides of the milky-green Rio Exploradores, a quick ferry crossing and a boat ride past truck-sized icebergs to approach the shape-shifting face of San Rafael. This massive glacier cuts a 16km path through a virgin Patagonian rainforest before emptying out into a slate-blue lagoon, replenishing its frigid waters every few minutes with roaring cascades of calving ice. The new route to see this glacier from Puerto Rio Tranquilo is less than three years old. It saves both time and money when compared to the overnight catamaran journey from Puerto Chacabuco (further north) and is much more intimate of an experience. Arrange the trip in town with either Destino Patagonia or Turismo Rio Exploradores (exploradores-sanrafael.cl).
The closest glaciers to Aysén’s capital of Coyhaique lie amid the castle-like spires of nearby Cerro Castillo. The four-day circuit trek around this formidable mountain increasingly attracts solitude-seekers put off by the more crowded backpacking trails in Torres Del Paine further south. The 43km journey will take you past three major glaciers, turquoise lagoons and high alpine passes that are favored by Chile’s endangered huemul deer. If you don’t have the time or energy to commit to a long hike, you can always view Cerro Castillo’s glaciers gaucho-style on a half-day horseback tour. Five horse stables in the small service town of Villa Cerro Castillo can set you up, and tours should be booked in person when you arrive.
Nevertheless, it can be fun to tally up your adventures to appreciate just how far you’ve gone. Inspired by the new edition of The Travel Book, we asked a gaggle of travel-mad Lonely Planet staff to do just that.
I travel because… Away from home, everything – from road signs to what snacks people are eating – suddenly becomes fascinating. It’s so much fun to have every day feel like a series of mini-adventures.
Travel highlight of 2016: I visited the Latvian capital of Riga during the depths of winter when its cobbled streets are dusted with snow. It was absolutely freezing, but one evening I found the best place in the city to warm up. Tucked into a basement in the old town, Folkklubs Ala Pagrabs is a traditional tavern that hosts weekly folk dances. Though I planned only to watch, over beers I got chatting to one of the band members – a charming violinist and former Eurovision star – and she convinced me to take a turn around the floor. It was full of young people who knew all the moves, but they were extremely patient with the mal-coordinated novice in their midst. Mercifully the steps were quite repetitive, and I had more fun than I could have thought possible!
Next on my travel wishlist: Austria and Kenya
I travel because… It frees my mind. The brain shifts into autopilot in a familiar environment; I suppose that’s just the way we’re designed. Travel isn’t the only way to jolt yourself back into manual, but it might well be the most enjoyable method.
Travel highlight of 2016: Island-hopping in Bohuslän, West Sweden, edges out stiff competition to top my list this year. I just adored the laid-back atmosphere of this region, which stretches from Gothenburg up the coast to the border with Norway. It’s a beauty parade of fishing villages cum summer resorts – Lysekil, Smögen and Fjällbacka among them – that share a distinctive look and feel: red wooden huts, pink granite boulders, deep blue sea.
Up near the border, you can catch a ferry to the car-free Koster Islands, which lie at the heart of Kosterhavet, Sweden’s only national marine park. I joined a kayak tour of the archipelago at dusk, which is a magical time of day to explore the tiny islets and secret bays uninterrupted by a single sound apart from your paddle entering the silky, clear water and the occasional sea bird flying home to roost.

Snowboarding has significantly increased in popularity and many shops haven’t caught up with demand. You will probably have a choice of renting equipment at the mountain, or from other stores in the region. At some resorts, where there isn’t much of a town, you should probably rent at the mountain. At other resorts, you may have many other rental alternatives. The advantage of renting elsewhere is that you’ll likely get a better cost. The mountain will probably be more convenient because you won’t have to carry gear as far if you’re just renting for one day.
Lessons Learned from Years with Skis
If you decide to lease at the mountain, you should arrive an hour before you intend to ski or snowboard. This will give you time to get your gear and get fitted. It’s best to get the gear the day before going out if you lease elsewhere. In this manner, you will have the ability to locate other accommodations if they would not have the proper gear. When you get there, you should be prepared ahead of time with everyone’s weights, heights, and shoe sizes. While many people may want to have to fudge on their weight, you should be fair. The sort of equipment you need depends upon your weight. You might be risking your own safety if you give the incorrect weight. You should make sure the shop you lease from has the ideal size boots if you’ve got a very big shoe size. If not, you should purchase equipment online before you show up.
