Port of Call - Cairns

Gateway to the world famous Great Barrier Reef, Cairns is Australia´s favourite tropical city.

Located in far north Queensland, Cairns is a beautiful coastal city that is a popular destination with visitors from Australia and worldwide. Built on the banks of the Trinity Inlet, the atmosphere here is all about the coastal lifestyle.

Explore the esplanade and famous night markets, head out on a snorkeling or scuba diving trip on the reef or spend sometime in the surrounding mountains and hinterland.

Offering more activities and attractions than you could poke a stick at, Cairns is the ultimate Queensland holiday destination.

What to Explore
Expand

Kuranda

Nestled in the mountains behind the city of Cairns lies the unique rainforest village of Kuranda. Take the Skyrail Rainforest Cableway up the mountain, over the rainforest canopy and spend a day exploring this charming Aboriginal township.

Return to Cairns on the Kuranda Scenic Railway, which will expose you to one of Australia's most untouched sections of rainforest.

Atherton Tablelands

The beautiful Atherton Tablelands are a true treasure of North Queensland. Endless rolling green hills, quaint country farms, stunning waterfalls and a delicious variety of cheese and chocolate factories and vineyards makes the Atherton Tablelands the ultimate country experience.

White Water Rafting

Get the adrenalin pumping with the fast paced thrills of a white water rafting adventure down the Barron River. Pass through World Heritage Rainforest and magnificent gorges as you traverse rapids and challenging white water.
