From reef to rainforest, there’s plenty to ‘wow’ close to Queensland’s northern city of Cairns. But don’t forget to make time to wander down the city’s esplanade, and enjoy the superb facilities at your hotel too.
All of our holidays are tailor-made to your requirements by an expert Travel Specialist.
In the tropical far north of Queensland lies the city of Cairns; a place renowned as a northern gateway to two of Australia’s most coveted destinations, the Great Barrier Reef and the Daintree Rainforest, both of which are World Heritage-listed wonders.
This stylish city with its tropical climate boasts a man-made saltwater lagoon, perfect for a cooling dip after an amble along the oceanfront Cairns Esplanade exploring its al fresco eateries. An afternoon could then be spent at the Cairns Botanic Gardens or on an Aboriginal walking tour, before a trip to a night market and a seafood supper with a glass of chilled Aussie wine.
From the harbour, you could set out on a seafaring adventure into the Great Barrier Reef, simply to soak up the view and take photos, or dive into the waters on a snorkelling or diving adventure. Or you could head inland and take the Skyrail Rainforest Cableway to Kuranda, a village in the rainforest where you can purchase indigenous art at the markets and sample a ‘bush food’ tasting platter with a view of the trees.
