State of Queensland Tourist Traps

  • Parents

    Brisbane Tourist Traps

    if your a parent and your on the gold coast well look out as there are so many things the kids will wantot see and do which will cost you heaps of cash.such as dream world,seaworld ,wet and wild and of course movie world how ever one tour I did was around the hinterland region and it was well worth a look.and for a all day trip was good value.

  • Surfers Paradise.

    Gold Coast Tourist Traps

    "I always thought of the Gold Coast as a place of harmony, sunshine, partying and surf but while on our recent holiday there I witnessed a lot more. Sure they have the surf, the partying and the sunshine but we saw no sign of harmony in fact I put it close to disarray. The place is dirty, tacky and dated. The streets are littered with trash,...

  • Brisbane Range is NOT in Brisbane City

    VT have now removed Brisbane Range from Brisbane page so no more confusion.....Brisbane Range is a bushland mountain area near NanagoJust so you are not confused when you are reading about Brisbane ,the capital of Queensland, on Virtual Tourist please do not try to find Brisbane Range because it does NOT exist in Brisbane. People do live in range...

  • Gateway Bridge Toll

    The simplest and best way to cross from the south (Gold Coast side) of Brisbane to the north (Sunshine Coast side) is the Gateway Bridge which is a toll bridge. And the same applies to go south to Pacific Highway or to branch off to Ipswich, Toowoomba or Warwick.All manual toll booths are now closed and removedThough at times there is a lot of...

  • Queensland Weather

    You hear all the time what beautiful weather we have in Queensland. And we do. But not all the time. Along the coastal strip can be quite different to the places on the other side of the range...The Great Dividing Range that is.Once you cross the range you could well be colder or hotter than the coast. Usually the heat is dryer. Go outback and you...

  • Two Blackall Ranges...Road and Drive

    Sunshine Coast HinterlandNot to be confusedJust be aware that Blackall Range Road and Blackall Range Tourist Drive are not the same. And I am sure that you will be looking for the Tourist DriveYou can read about The Blackall Range Tourist Drive here This drive starts at Landsborough and encompasses Maleny, Witta, Reeseville, Montville, Flaxton,...

  • In Time for Your Plane

    The tourist trap is to underestimate how long it will take you to reach Brisbane Airport ....Domestic and International are quite separate by the way.Brisbane peak hour can be very slow as can travelling from the Gold Coast. The train from Gold Coast is good but from Sunshine Coast the train can be delayed and it is NOT a direct airport train.The...


    Why I call Australia Zoo a tourist trap, is because it still plays on the name Steve Irwin, plus the admission prices are extremely high, too high for the average family wanting a day out. I have found other zoos to have just as good shows and more animals on display for HALF THE PRICE!The price is ridicuously high, just imagine taking the family...

  • Its not made in Australia

    You buy a cute little koala toy or maybe an Australian flag. Sometimes it is a T-shirt and you find to your horror it is not made in Australia. An Australian souvenir "made in China" .Who would want that to remind them of a stay in our beautiful country? You can certainly check the label.It is important to keep the thought in your mind or you...

  • Long Distances between Attractions

    If you are used to seeing one magical sight after another in other parts of the world it may not be the case in Queensland.How many times does the British Isles fit into Qld...About 7.1 times. And there may only be one extinct volcano to see after miles(kilometers)of travel.There is a great little pub to visit on the way to Monto in Qld. Is it too...

  • Christmas time

    Themeparks on the gold coast at christmas/ new years time get VERY busy. The lines will be huge and you will not get to ride many rides. Dreamworld- ride the giant drop and brand new motocoasterWhitewaterworld- hydrocoaster, green roomwet n wild - don't bothersea world- animals are good Visit the tallest tower on the coast, Q1 and go to the top.

  • When departing from every park exhibit...

    You have to pass through the fleecing section. Ripley's Believe it or not ensnares the unaware with a penny arcade at the exit..........the Australian Zoo exit is through quite a large shop of souveniers and everywhere we visited adopts this attitude of well we will get your last cent if you don't put your blinkers on and head straight out, after...
