Your local guide to Cairns

The gateway to Queensland’s tropical north, Cairns is a laid-back city best enjoyed outdoors for the Great Barrier Reef and Wet Tropics World Heritage Rainforest, but don’t miss the great things to do in and around town.

Unofficially known as the Adventure Capital of Australia Cairns is all about thrill seeking action! You’ll find yourself jumping out of a plane skydiving, take a bungy jump, soaring across crystal clear water hang-gliding, taking in the reef by hot-air ballooning. Take a boat ride out to the reef and find Nemo, Dory and Reef Sharks up close while scuba diving or snorkelling. Test your skills white-water rafting, sea kayaking, Cairns will keep coming at you until you have nothing left or your next bus departs.
