Cairns

Queensland's northern town of Cairns is the gateway to Australia's marine wonderland, the Great Barrier Reef, and to spectacularly lush rain forests farther up the coast: both the Great Barrier Reef and the Daintree Rain Forest are protected World Heritage sites, celebrated internationally for the intricacy and beauty of the ecosystems they house. You can choose to stay in the bustling city or one of the more quant and romantic towns such as Port Douglas, a magnificent little town one hour north of Cairns or Palm Cove, just 20 minutes away.

Take one of the many cruises to explore one of the Wonders of the World, the Great Barrier Reef. Enjoy a train ride to the jungle village of Kuranda, passing spectacular waterfalls and dense tropical foliage. Up north you'll explore, eat, and see an award-winning Aborigine dance performance.

There are a myriad of other activities such as hot-air ballooning, kayaking, visiting National Parks, river rafting and more.
