In celebration of embracing the summer experience this year, Rolling Stone Australia is partnering with MyQueensland and Cairns & Great Barrier Reef to bring you Rolling Stone Travel Agency, a pop-up travel agency that’s nothing like a typical travel guide and aims to showcase the best of Tropical North Queensland through music and culture.

Not just known for its pristine beaches and beautiful landscape, visitors to Tropical North QLD are truly spoiled for choice when it comes to things to do and sights to see.

Active travellers can snorkel or dive on Australia’s greatest natural wonder, the Great Barrier Reef, cycle or hike through highland plateaus, discover hidden rainforest waterfalls, go white-water rafting along raging rivers, or even skydive over the sparkling blue ocean. You can get involved in a conservation project, tee off on a tropical golf course or pitch your tent and spend a night in the bush.

For travellers looking for something a little more laid-back, there are food and wine trails, fascinating museums, markets bursting with locally made goodies, and some of the best spas and wellness retreats in the country.
