Cairns & Great Barrier Reef
With two World Heritage areas side by side, the Great Barrier Reef and the Wet Tropics rainforest, Cairns & Great Barrier Reef truly is Adventurous by nature. These two National Landscapes are where you can discover superior natural encounters and spectacular tropical landscapes. Dive the depths of the Great Barrier Reef, soar above the world’s oldest rainforest, discover the accessible outback, experience Indigenous culture and see native wildlife.
Cairns pulses with energy as the heart of the Great Barrier Reef and the Wet Tropics rainforest. More than 600 tours a day make the most of the year-round outdoor lifestyle while world-class sporting events and festivals embrace the cosmopolitan city’s vibrant tropical culture. Travel through the rainforest to the village of Kuranda to see local arts and crafts, relax on the beach at Palm Cove or enjoy boutique shopping at Port Douglas.
A coconut fringed beach sets the idyllic scene at Palm Cove for lazy days relaxing on the beach or at a tropical resort. Refine your senses with gourmet treats at a beachfront restaurant, indulgent treatments at a spa or boutique shopping for fashion and art. Water sports, a wildlife zoo, Indigenous culture and golf are among the many nearby activities.
