Attractions near the Best Western Lazy Lizard Motor Inn
Hot air balloons and wildlife
Visitors to the region can take an early morning drive up into the hinterland for a hot air balloon ride. Welcome the day by floating above the beautiful Atherton Tablelands. Breathe in the fresh morning air; hear the calls of abundant local birdlife; and watch as the sun rises over the Coral Sea and Cairns.
After your morning balloon ride, you can visit the quaint mountain village of Kuranda for a spot of market shopping, and also see Australia’s biggest butterfly population. Discover the cascading waters of one of the many local waterfalls and take a dip in a (croc-free) swimming hole. Or you might like to hike along bushland trails and attempt to spot kangaroos or perhaps even an elusive platypus.
Fitzroy Island escape
Just off the coast of Cairns sits a quiet island paradise that feels miles away from anywhere. Tiny Fitzroy Island is covered in tropical bushland and surrounded by rocky outcrops and colourful coral.
Take a self-guided walk to the lighthouse, the secluded Nudey Beach, or along the boulder-strewn summit track, which provides panoramic views over the island and surrounding seas. Swim in the clear Coral Sea or snorkel with an abundance of fish on the surrounding coral reefs; or just relax in the quiet resort with a drink by the pool.
