Explore the Beauty of Cairns & Port Douglas

The Great Barrier Reef is one of Australia’s quintessential destinations and a ‘must see’ on anyone’s Bucket List. The bustling city of Cairns has long been considered the gateway to it, with numerous operators running boats out every day.

While the reef is fascinating and can provide days of unforgettable underwater entertainment, Cairns has a lot more for you to enjoy. It has capitalised on the number of adventurous tourists coming to explore the sea by offering a number of other adrenalin-pumping activities. 

There are opportunities for hang gliding, bungee jumping and skydiving – so if your idea of fun is flying above the ground or hurtling towards it, you’re well catered for.

The city is unashamedly tourist-orientated – but that doesn’t mean it’s tacky. What it does mean is that there is a plethora of excellent restaurants and other amenities to ensure your stay is relaxing and luxurious.   

There’s no beach to speak of, but that’s where Port Douglas comes in. An hour north of Cairns, this resort town has some of Australia’s most beautiful beaches perfect for relaxation.
