Queensland Hotels with Pools

Queensland is one of Australia’s Northeastern states and has a vast coastline that extends to 7000 kilometers. The most popular tourist attraction here is definitely the Great Barrier Reef located offshore, as it’s home to the world’s largest coral reefs with thousands of marine and aquatic lifeforms thriving in it. One of the most important cities here is Cairns, which acts a gateway to the Great Barrier Reef and has its own rainforests as well. Additionally, the Gold Coast is another prime attraction as it features some of the best beaches on the Australian coastline, popular for its theme parks, surfing, etc. The capital city here is Brisbane and it’s flanked by the Gold and the Sunshine coasts. There are a lot of great pool hotels and resorts all across Queensland. However, you should stay in a luxury pool hotel that’s also within close proximity of all the attractions you’re interested in. Based on that, and other factors, we’ve compiled this list of the top 10 pool hotels in Queensland.
