Adventurous by nature, Cairns & Great Barrier Reef mixes the excitement of new discoveries with the enchantment of exotic experiences.

The only place where two World Heritage Wonders are side by side: The Great Barrier Reef and the Daintree National Park with some of the world’s oldest tropical rainforest

The warmth of the tropics is reflected in engaging activities such as snorkeling and diving on the Great Barrier Reef, white water rafting, beach combing, kayaking, rainforest walks, jungle surfing, bungy jumping, sky diving and so much more.

Accommodation choices are varied, ranging from luxurious resorts and apartments, hotels, caravan parks, bed and breakfasts, lodges and private homes to rent.

Colourful and quirky Kuranda , the village in the rainforest can be reached by the historic Kuranda Scenic Rail, or travel on Skyrail’s Rainforest Cableway, soaring above the rainforest with magnificent views.

From Cardwell to Cooktown the sheer majesty of nature is evident in Tropical North Queensland’s pristine rainforest. Relax in cosy bed and breakfast accommodation, explore volcanic crater lakes and spectacular waterfalls on the Atherton Tablelands and sample some of the best produce the region has on offer.

Discover the outback and Gulf Savannah and uncover the quintessential spirit of Outback Australia only a few hours drive from the coast. 

Hidden gorges, rodeos and country races, mining relics. Lava tubes and wetlands abounding with bird life are all part of the region’s enormous diversity. 

You can rough it on a 4WD and follow in the foot steps of our explorers or join a coach tour and hop aboard a rail adventure.

So, escape and bask in Cairns & Great Barrier Reef’s sunshine whilst experiencing natural encounters at its’ best, where you can step out of your comfort zone and indulge, exhilarate and relax.
