If you like beaches the coasts in south east queensland (gold and 
sunshine coast) are just gorgegous. The gold coast is more developed, 
the sunshine coast less so (though that's really started to change in 
the last 10 years).

If you have ever thought about snorkling or scuba diving I'm told that 
the barrier reef up in Cairnes is an amaying experience and there's 
plenty of other things to do around Cairnes as well, including the some 
spectacular rainforests.

I've also enjoyed a trip down to Byron Bay which is a really laid back 
kind of beachy place. It's got craft markets and long stretches of beach 
and what I'm sure is the most windy lighthouse in the world. You might 
have trouble getting somewhere to stay there around Christmas though.

Heh. Can you tell I'm missing the place? ;)
