A WELCOME STATE OF MIND
There’s a reason Tropical North Queensland has a reputation for being the most laid-back part of the country. It’s hard to take life too seriously when the reef glistens at your doorstep, the rainforest is your backyard and the thermometer rarely drops below a balmy 25C (77 F).
It’s not just the weather that’s warm, either – the people are about as friendly and welcoming as they come. You’ll tend to find them outdoors – taking a refreshing dip before work, cooling off under a waterfall, snorkelling the reef, or simply lounging in a deckchair. You won’t get a warmer welcome anywhere else.
