Adventure
In Tropical North Queensland your days and nights can be as adventurous or as relaxed as
you like. If you want to find plenty of activities to get your heart racing you have come to the
right place.

Take a scenic flight over the Great Barrier Reef, one of the Seven Natural Wonders of
the World. The amazing contrast of colours is something that is best experienced from the
air. Other sights from the air include, Cairns, Green Island, Double Island, Palm Cove,
Arlington Reef, Upolu Reef, Batt Reef, Tongue Reef and Port Douglas.

You can find some of the best white-water rafting rapids in Australia on the Tully and
Barron River, the best way to experience pristine rainforest, crystal clear rivers and breathtaking scenery. Tackle grade two to four rapids, try cliff jumping and rapid swimming.
Do a half-day of tubing on the Mulgrave River and float through small, fun rapids on
professional twin chamber tubes.

Wildife
Cairns offers a number of amazing wildlife experiences where you can meet koalas,
wallabies, kangaroos, exotic fish, endangered bird species and colourful butterflies.

The Wet Tropics is home to about a third of Australia’s 315 mammal species, of those,
13 are found nowhere else in the world. They include unique Green Possums, Ringtail Possums, Fierce Marsupial Cats, Rare Bats, Tree-Kangaroos, a Rat- Kangaroo, Melomys and Antechinus.

If you want to get wet, take a dip in the picturesque Lagoon, a 4,800 square-metre salt-water pool that offers year-round swimming on the Esplanade in Cairns CBD.

Surrounding the Lagoon are parklands with tropical gardens. This is the perfect spot to take a stroll, BBQ yourself a lunch, go biking or simply enjoy a picnic.

Offering almost two kilometres of landscaped parkland with a restaurant strip on one side and the harbour inlet on the other you can relax on the grass and soak up the sun or dine in one of the many restaurants. The choice is yours.
