I would absolutely consider visiting the Whitsundays in north Queensland. While parts of it are somewhat touristy, such as Airlie Beach, there are
areas, and islands in particular, that are more secluded and just as breathtaking. For example, South Molle Island as opposed to Hamilton Island.
South Molle is smaller but has a vastly smaller number of tourists than Hamo, and it is just as gorgeous. Although, Hamilton as well as a number of
other islands in the region would be worth your while to check out, even if they are a bit more busy. It would have everything to do with what time of
year you decide to travel. You may have to do a bit of research.
Additionally, there is the Atherton Tablelands and surrounding north Queensland areas.
(I have an overwhelming suspicion that I have swam under this waterfall on a trip up to Atherton).
Paronella Park also is incredible.
There are so many places
I'm sorry, I'm into beaches and tropical north Q has some of the most spectacular
GL with your travels!
