WHERE THE RAINFOREST MEETS THE REEF

 

Cairns is a modern city set in tropical far north Queensland, the gateway to the Great Barrier Reef and without a doubt, Australia’s adventure capital.

The city is known for its nightlife, party atmosphere and popular clubs and bars. Cairns is the main gateway to the World Heritage icons of the Great Barrier Reef and Wet Tropics rainforests. Spend some time exploring the wonders of this region and take home experiences like no others. Don’t forget your camera!

 

Rainforest

Biologists have described the spectacular rainforests of the areas as the ‘greatest celebration of life on earth.’ The farm and grazing lands produce fruit, vegetables, and grains for both the local and export markets and a variety of gourmet delights such as coffee, wines, dairy products, and deli foods. 

From lush rainforest landscapes to grasslands and farmlands the diverse landscape presents opportunities for bush walking, bird watching, wildlife cruises and tours, hot air ballooning, water sports including white water rafting and fishing for the famed barramundi.

 

Reef 

Beginner courses and dives are a great way to explore the Great Barrier Reef. Daily excursions offer introductory dives, a hand-held dive lasting about forty minutes, with professional tutorage.

Some of the world’s biggest and best diver training facilities are found in Cairns and offer a range of certificate courses. Training starts on land in salt-water pools, then progresses to the practical three-to-four day live on board finale at the reef itself. 

Local dive operators offer trips for all levels of divers, from budget/backpacker style live-a-board trips to private luxury charter vessels. People of all ages and budgets are catered for while multilingual instructors provide dive courses in Japanese, German, French, Spanish, and Italian.

 

Take a Reef Trip

If you don’t want to get into the water, these trips are perfect. You can visit the reef, islands, and large floating platforms that offer attractions such as underwater observatories, glass-bottomed boats, beaches and the like.
