Cairns is the jewel in Australia's tropical crown. With over 300 days of sunshine, plenty of space, friendly locals, and the World Heritage-listed Daintree rainforest and Great Barrier Reef side by side, it’s easy to see why Mother Nature chose Cairns be the international hub of adventure vacations.

Cairns natural attractions rank as some of the most original and exciting in Australia. Golden sunny beaches flanked by pristine rainforest and the Cairns Great Barrier Reef make it a region that literally has it all! Swim, snorkel and dive among thousands of colorful fish and coral just off the coast.

Fun Fact: The local Council proudly claims it is the "safest tropical city in the world.”

Cairns is also an enjoyable and beautiful city to visit, bursting at the seams with attractions and tours. Cairns Esplanade, once a huge grassy park, now features a world-class facility incorporating an outdoor amphitheatre, a large sandy swimming lagoon, grassy picnic areas, walking tracks, free public barbeques, children's playground, shops and restaurants, an environmental interpretation center, and a Cairns Great Barrier Reef Cruise departure terminal.

Need more options? Perhaps you’d like to see a fire show before you drift over the Atherton Tablelands in a hot-air balloon, then touch down for breakfast with a lion, have tea with a cassowary, or lunch with a crocodile. Choices in Cairns are as vivid as your imagination - it’s all up to you!
