Destination Queensland and The Great Barrier Reef some basic information and travel assistance

Certified Australia Travel Specialist

It’s all action in sunny, sophisticated Cairns, gateway to the World Heritage-listed Great Barrier Reef and international hub for tanned travellers. There so much to do here you might want to start slowly. Wander past the lagoon and picnic spots of the Cairns Esplanade, do an Aboriginal walking tour or bliss out on the white sands of Palm Cove. Alternatively, dive into action with a sky-dive or bungy-jump. Snorkel or scuba dive with brilliant fish and coral or sail past pristine islands on the Great Barrier Reef. Day-trip to the tranquil, butterfly-fringed village of Kuranda and discover Cairns’ great restaurant and bar scene.
