Queensland and the Great Barrier Reef is a shopper’s paradise, especially for women. No one returns from their vacation without a handful of shopping bags. Designer fashion labels to souvenirs from weekend markets, everything and anything under the sky can be bought here. Cairns is a big city and a starting point for exploring the Great Barrier Reef; shopping in this city can turn out to be an expedition in itself. Shopping on islands such as Whitsundays or Hamilton is also exciting, with the local art and crafts market held every weekend.
