More than three million people visited Queensland last month.

Queensland is seeing a huge boost in visitor numbers recently as more and more people see the state as the destination to enjoy a perfect Aussie experience.

According to official travel statistics, more than three million tourists landed in Queensland airports during last month – a rise of five per cent on 2011’s July.

Brisbane and Cairns recorded rises, but the Gold Coast Airport was the most popular travel hub.

“[It] has experienced a jump of more than ten per cent across its domestic and international terminals and this is before Qantas begins direct flights from Sydney,” said tourism minister Jann Stuckey.

The Gold Cost is a great tourist destination because as well as the climate it has so many things for visitors to experience.

In just a few days in Queensland they can ride rollercoasters, feed sharks and rays and travel the skies on a hot air balloon tour.
