Attractions Near Reef Palms Apartments
Wallaby Watching at Trinity Beach
Cairns has a number of lovely beaches close to the town centre and Trinity Beach – one of the smallest – is one of the most beautiful. It is lined with palm trees and flanked by the long blue ranges of mountains that surround Cairns.
This is also a great spot to see wild wallabies feeding every evening. Find a quiet spot between 4pm and 7pm and stay still to see hundreds of these super cute creatures grazing and playing in the beachside park. They emerge slowly from the bushes and are quite used to the people who come to watch them. Grab some fish and chips to enjoy while wallaby watching.
Experience the Red Arrow Walk
If you have been enjoying the Cairns dining scene and need to work off some of that amazing food, embark on one of the city’s most popular walks and enjoy fabulous views across Cairns, Trinity Inlet and out to the Coral Sea. It is just a 10-minute drive from town to the car park at Mount Whitfield Conservation Park, where the 1.3 kilometre Red Arrow circuit begins.
Walk or run – it’s your choice – as is the path you take when the tracks splits half way. The steeper Blue Arrow extension walk takes you to the summit, or just continue around the Red Arrow circuit (an hour long) and enjoy the lush rainforest, grasslands and patches of bamboo.
