A Cairns holiday has adrenalin activities, leisure opportunities and more on offer
The spectacular coral formations and vibrant marine life of the Great Barrier Reef are just a boat ride away from Cairns, which also boasts beautiful beaches to the north and south of the city including the luxurious Palm Cove with 5-star resorts and pampering spas. Cairn's city lifestyle spans from the seafront esplanade to the marina with excellent oceanfront eateries, a saltwater lagoon, beach volleyball courts and many other amenities to enjoy amid the wonderful weather and location of Trinity Bay.
The Cairns region also includes the Wet Tropics Rainforest which includes Queensland's highest mountains of Mt Bartle Frere and Bellenden Ker, as well as Australia's longest single drop waterfall, Wallaman Falls. The area contains 600km of scenic drives and walks catering for all fitness levels. This lush verdant area naturally lends itself to fertile farmland and the Atherton Tablelands is a cornucopia of fresh produce, gourmet dairy and coffee to discover on a food trail among beautiful scenery and wildlife.
The Kuranda train, coach and sky combos are always a great value day trip, the rainforest scenery is stunning and there are art and craft markets held regularly through the week. The Kuranda Wildlife Experience pass is a popular choice as it includes entry to the Kuranda Koala Gardens, Birdworld and the Australian Butterfly Sanctuary.
