Are you looking to escape the hustle and bustle of Brisbane during a long weekend? Here are our top five spots we’d like to explore!

Noosa everglades

Explore the Everglades in Noosa

The Noosa Everglades offer both wilderness and wildlife. Located only 40 minutes’ drive from Noosa Heads, these picturesque waters are not to be missed. Experience Australia's most diverse ecosystems on a guided boat tour or more active adventurers can take a self-guided kayak tour.

Queen mary falls

Off-road in royalty

Queen Mary Falls Caravan park is an excellent spot for the whole family to enjoy. With the falls located onsite, there is so much to see and do over a long weekend. Plus, if you’re a lover of four-wheel driving and off-roading, take the 14 river crossing track for a spin; you won’t want to miss it!


Country comfort

Goomeri is a small country town located approximately 2.5 hours away from Brisbane and home to many hidden gems. From mountain biking and hiking trails to famous attractions like Boat Mountain, there is so much to explore. Don’t forget to visit the famous Goomeri bakery.

Hervey bay whale watch

Whale watch at the bay

Now is the perfect time to witness some whale-watching, and what better place to do so than Hervey Bay; the whale-watching capital of Australia. There are numerous tours available to book this once in a lifetime experience to see these incredible creatures in the wild.

Stargaze at Springbrook National Park

Calling all night owls. Springbrook National Park is beautiful by day and breathtaking by night. Not only is it home to some of Queensland's most ancient rainforests, but this national park is also only one of a few parks open after dark. Springbrook rangers offer tours of incredible glow worm caves and the star studded night sky features the Southern Cross constellation. Don't forget your Dorcy torch to guide your way!

Wherever you decide to go during a long weekend, we hope you have a fantastic adventure. Make sure you’re prepared for the trip with the best portable lighting in the business. Head to our website’s product page to find the right gear for you.
