# 1 Queensland has all kinds of landscapes

There’s a world of hiking in Queensland, from bush and rainforests to islands and mountains. In the south, a family of iconic peaks called the Glasshouse Mountains adorn the horizon just an hour from the capital city. Two hours’ drive from Brisbane, verdant Jurassic rainforests engulf the land. Then there’s the Scenic Rim, which has one mountain after another, perfect for those endless summer days.

# 2 Queensland has one of the least crowded hiking experiences in the world
# 3 You can hike year-round
# 4 Queensland has world-renowned natural sights
# 5 Queensland has more plant and animal types than any other Australian state
