    Cairns is a regional city in Far North Queensland, Australia. The city was named after William Wellington Cairns. It was formed to serve miners heading for the Hodgkinson River goldfield, but experienced a decline when an easier route was discovered from Port Douglas. It later developed into a railhead and major port for exporting sugar cane, gold and other metals, minerals and agricultural products from surrounding coastal areas and the Atherton Tableland region. As of 2010, the population is approximately 150,920.

    Cairns is located about 1,700 km from Brisbane, and about 2,420 km from Sydney by road. It is a popular travel destination for foreign tourists because of its tropical climate. It serves as a starting point for people wanting to visit the Great Barrier Reef and Far North Queensland.

These trees will be encountered upon our rainforest walk within the surrounding rainforest of the Crater. An award winning devonshire tea will be served in the tea-house overlooking the now peaceful lake.

    Your tour continues along the crater valley way offering some absolutely breathtaking scenery of rolling green pasture, huge valleys and mountain ridges to Mt Hypipamee National Park. Here you will be treated to more spectacular rainforest walks and some phenomenal natural landscapes including dinner falls, and a volcanic crater that will have you feeling a little dizzy as you take a look at the deep results of a single explosive event that occurred during the volcanic era.

          On this 8-hour tour from Cairns, cruise out to an activity platform on the outer Great Barrier Reef for a day of exploring this natural wonder in different ways. This location is selected for its water clarity, coral quality, and diversity of marine life, which you can see while snorkeling or taking a tour by glass-bottom boat or semi-submersible vessel. Learn about the wildlife from on-board marine biologists, and choose to participate in more activities, if you wish, like scuba diving or a helicopter ride (additional expense). All ages and swimming abilities are welcome. Buffet lunch is included.

          Depart Cairns in the morning on a fast catamaran, which provides a smooth ride and shorter travel time than many other tour boats, leaving you more of the day to enjoy on the outer Great Barrier Reef. During the 1.5-hour ride, enjoy the space, comfort, and service of the crew.

          When you arrive at Marine World, the all-weather activities platform, begin your exploration of the UNESCO-listed reef, a complex and diverse ecosystem home to more than 1,500 species of fish, 400 types of coral, 200 types of birds, and 20 types of reptiles. You can snorkel in the sheltered coral lagoon with provided equipment, go scuba diving with a certified dive (up to three dive sites) or introductory session (no experience necessary), or join the on-board marine biologist for a guided snorkeling safari (diving and guided snorkeling at your own expense). You can also enjoy a identification session with the marine biologist, who points out resident fish like "Wally," the Maori wrasse.

          If you're not a confident swimmer, stay dry and view the marine life from the semi-submersible reef viewer, glass-bottom boat, or underwater observatory. Optional activities (own expense) include a helmet dive for a scuba-style experience up to 3 meters deep where you won't get your hair wet, or a scenic helicopter flight for an aerial adventure over the reef. Or, simply relax and enjoy the tropical weather on the sundeck. A massage therapist is available if you feel like treating yourself (own expense).

          After five hours on the platform, hop back on the catamaran for the return ride to Cairns, where your day tour ends.

              Marvel at the natural beauty of Cape Tribulation and its surrounding attractions on a day trip from Cairns and Port Douglas. Get ready for a day of native culture and UNESCO World Heritage–listed wonders, as this guided tour delivers it all: coastal drives, a rainforest walk, Mossman Gorge, the Daintree Rainforest, an indigenous 'Welcome to Country' event and smoke ceremony, and a river cruise, if selected when booking (the river cruise is an optional upgrade). Hotel pickup and drop-off and lunch are included.

              The world’s oldest surviving tropical rainforest, Daintree, meets the greatest living tropical reef, the Great Barrier Reef, at Cape Tribulation. Nowhere else on Earth do two World Heritage–listed natural sites exist side by side, and you’ll have ample time to enjoy this paradise on your day trip from Cairns.

              After hotel pickup, begin your tour with a scenic coastal drive to Port Douglas along far north Queensland’s great ocean road, which provides panoramic views over the Coral Sea. Heading north, your first stop is Mossman Gorge, the southern sector of Daintree National Park. Carved out by the mountain waters of the Mossman River, which winds through large granite boulders, the gorge is bordered by lush green forest. Participate in an Australian ‘Welcome to Country’ event with the area’s traditional owners, the indigenous Kuku Yalanji people, who cleanse you of evil spirits with a smoke ceremony and apply traditional rainforest body paint to your skin. Then enjoy a refreshing swim in the cascading waters.

              Continuing North, arrive at the Daintree River, and if you select the cruise option during booking, you will head out on the river for a wildlife cruise. You might spot a crocodile while learning about the fragile ecosystem of this serpent-like river system.

              Next, have lunch at Cape Trib Beach House dining on the beach with toes in the sand (weather permitting). Soak up the vibes by the ocean while you refuel for the afternoon ahead.

              On the way back to Cairns, explore this ancient rainforest environment on a tour along the Marrdja Botanical Boardwalk with a highly trained guide who provides rainforest interpretation. Marvel at the diversity of vegetation, from low-lying ferns and shrubs to the massive rainforest canopy and even mangrove ecosystems, all in one short easy walk. Then head to Cape Tribulation Beach, where the rainforest meets the reef. This is one of the best photo ops of the day and the ideal place to be wowed by the natural beauty of this little corner of the planet.

              Then make a pit stop at Floravilla, home to 26 flavors of locally made ice cream including dragonfruit, coconut ginger, black sapote, and goji berry with rainforest honey (ice cream at own expense).

              Stop for a photo opportunity at the Alexandra Range lookout (Walu Wugirriga), which provides views over the Daintree River, its rainforest delta, and out to the Coral Sea.

              Then hop back on your tour bus for the return journey to Cairns, including a quick drive through Port Douglas, a picturesque beachside village with a laidback atmosphere and many bars and cafes. Your day trip ends with drop-off at your pickup location.

              Join this small-group, 1-day tour to the World Heritage-listed Daintree Rainforest, traveling from Cairns, Palm Cove, or Port Douglas. Led by your guide, spot exotic birds, butterflies, and crocodiles as you cruise down the Daintree River, then take a hike through the tropical rainforest and enjoy sweeping views of the Great Barrier Reef from Cape Tribulation. After lunch, encounter some of Australia’s best-loved animals, such as kangaroos, wallabies, and lizards, make a photo stop at the Alexandra Range Lookout, and ride the Daintree River Ferry.

              Depart from your accommodation in Cairns (6:45am), Palm Cove (7:15am), or Port Douglas (7:45am) and travel through rich farming areas toward the World Heritage-listed forest region of the Daintree National Park. The Wet Tropics are one of the richest sites for biodiversity on the planet, and Daintree is a place of rugged mountains, deep gorges and flowing rivers.

              Step aboard your own craft for a cruise along the smooth waters of the Daintree River under the overhead canopies. Spot Ulysses butterflies, Kingfishers, pythons, and other wildlife and cruise the silent backwaters where crocodiles can usually be seen basking on the muddy banks. Arriving on the northern side of the river, enter the Daintree section of the Wet Tropics World Heritage protected rainforest and enjoy a home-made morning tea underneath the rainforest canopy.

              Next, head to the beautiful Alexandra Range, passing through local rainforest along the way. Take a scenic hike through this incredible ecosystem with a guided walk to view ancient plants and fascinating wildlife. Get an insight from your guide into the local aboriginal culture.

Enjoy a delicious included lunch of rainforest-inspired local produce amid the serenity of the jungle. Get up close to reptiles and frogs in the area, or feed the kangaroos and wallabies at a nearby private zoo.

              After lunch, see unusual, exotic fruit trees originating from all over the globe's tropical regions. The orchard here is also host to some exotic species of tropical flowering plants, both native and introduced. The sole purpose of the fruit grown here is to make pure, fresh, ice-cream and sorbet, which is made on the property and sold nowhere else on the globe. (Ice-cream is an optional extra.)

              The last stop is the outstanding panoramic view at Alexandra Range Lookout. From here, enjoy spectacular views of the mouth of the Daintree River, Snapper Island, and (on a clear day) Port Douglas. One final treat for the day is the crossing on the Daintree River Ferry – the iconic vehicle punt that transfers you out of the rainforest at the end of the day.

              The tour concludes at your original departure point at around 4pm.

With a naturalist guide, you'll travel by 4WD vehicle through the McAllister Ranges, the Great Dividing Range, the Australian Outback and the Atherton Tablelands, all while listening to informative commentary about the region’s wildlife, history and Aboriginal culture. Cruise the wetlands by boat, tour Chillagoe-Mungana Caves National Park, see historic mining towns, and enjoy morning tea, a pub lunch and a visit to a boutique distillery during this small-group tour limited to 16 people.

              Your day trip starts early with morning hotel pickup in Cairns by air-conditioned vehicle. With your guide, head up the McAllister Ranges to the Mareeba Wetlands, perhaps spotting emus, wedge-tailed eagles, kangaroos or frill-necked lizards along the way.

              Upon arrival, enjoy morning tea and a 20-minute wetlands cruise. View lotus lilies and water birds, and hear about the breeding program for endangered Gouldian finches. Afterward, switch into a 4WD vehicle and go off road, keeping an eye out for wallabies, emus and other wildlife before passing tropical fruit farms and crossing the Great Dividing Range into the Australian Outback. (Note, if wet weather closes the road, you'll visit Granite Gorge instead.)

              Continue through historic towns, mineral-rich hills and limestone karsts to reach Chillagoe, located 125 miles (200 km) west of Cairns. Learn about the town’s once-thriving mining industry and see copper smelter ruins; then enjoy lunch at an authentic Outback pub built in the early 1900s.

              After lunch, head to Chillagoe-Mungana Caves National Park. Take a ranger-guided tour of the spectacular caves, walking through underground chambers lined with sculptural stalactites, limestone formations and marine fossils from an ancient inland sea. Emerge from the caves and start the journey back toward Cairns, stopping in the Atherton Tablelands to visit Mt Uncle Distillery, the first distillery in North Queensland. You can taste its award-winning spirits and liqueurs, or enjoy some Devonshire tea, beer or wine (own expense). The stylishly rustic cafe, built with timber from the century-old Walsh River Bridge, provides views of lush gardens that contain banana, avocado and macadamia nut trees, plus peacocks, alpacas and donkeys.

These grades are referred to as the NORMAL grade. Below are the general characteristics of the six grades of whitewater.

              The Barron Gorge is graded rapids up to 3.

              RAPID GRADE (1) Rapids are small regular waves.
              RAPID GRADE (2) Rapids with regular medium sized waves (less than 1 meter) RAPID GRADE (3) Rapids with reasonable size waves (1-2 meters) with a need to hold on at times.

Your guide will be with you every step of the way – showing  you the best way to go and what to look out for.  Stretches of calm separates each  group of rapids where the sights and sounds of nature connect  you back to the wild. Ulysses butterflies, birds of prey, rainbow bee eaters are a common sight.  Focus and you will see so much more as you cruise through  410 million year old rainforests.  The scenery alone is worthy of the experience.   But don’t get too distracted – here come some rapids – woo hoo!

              Rapids get a little bigger and trickier, you’ll watch the water currents, dodge rocks, steer your raft to take the rapids head on, crash through  a wall of foaming water, and emerge drenched but euphoric at the feeling of the conquest, and eager for more.  And more you shall get..…With each rapid comes more confidence, more control and more excitement. You may go in, you may not, but that’s how nature rolls, and one thing is for certain, what nature teaches you, will be with you forever.… what you learn about yourself is priceless….Welcome ‘White Water Warrior’ You paddled, conquered and survived the Wildside.

              Looking for some adventure in paradise? Get high in the sky on a tandem sky dive over Cairns with spectacular bird's-eye views of the Great Barrier Reef and World Heritage Rainforest. No experience necessary!

              A tandem sky dive is the perfect introduction to sky diving and what better place to do it then the tropical paradise of Far North Queensland.

              Your highly trained instructor will give you a brief 15-minute safety and training session before you strap on your parachute and get ready for the flight of your life. Soaring to a height of up to 14,000ft, the drop zone is located between the reef and the rainforest for the best aerial views of Tropical North Queensland. Feel the exhilaration of a short freefall before the parachute is released and you float gently to the ground.

              Nestled between the world-famous Great Barrier Reef and World Heritage listed rainforests, the views over Cairns are nothing short of spectacular. To the north lies the ancient Daintree Rainforest, to the west the Atherton Tablelands. The blue waters of the Coral Sea lie to the west, with Great Barrier Reef islands including Green Island and Fitzroy Island visible just off the coast. There's no better way to see the natural beauty of the whole area in such a short time.

              Photos and videos of your sky dive are available to purchase on the day, and roundtrip transport from Cairns hotels is included.

              $250.00 AUD Book
              close
              There is no more spectacular way to start your day than with a dawn Balloon flight over the picturesque Atherton Tablelands.  As the sun rises the giant Balloons glide gently over the bushland and farms dotting the Mareeba Valley allowing you to spot awakening wildlife such as kangaroos and wallabies. Your highly skilled pilots will give you an insight into the surrounding region and the fascinating world of ballooning before returning you to your Cairns or Northern Beaches accommodation.

              If there was ever a good reason to get out of bed early then a balloon flight as the sun rises is it!  

              Your tour will begin with an early morning pick up by the friendly crew from your Cairns or Northern Beaches accommodation. Following a briefing of what the morning will entail, settle back for a snooze as you're driven toward the Atherton Tablelands approximately one hour away. On arrival to the township of Mareeba, make a quick comfort stop before heading to the launch site, here you will see the spectacular display of the giant balloons being inflated as the flames shoot out into the pre-dawn darkness filling the balloons with hot air.

              The crew will issue you with either a 1st or 2nd flight boarding pass before assisting the 1st flight passengers into the very safe and sturdy balloon basket. As the balloon gently lifts off the ground you will get an ever expanding view of the surrounding area as you gradually float higher - the path the balloons fly changes every day depending on the prevailing winds so you could be flying over farmland, rivers, dams or the town itself.

              It's not unusual to spot a variety of animals during your flight from kangaroos to cockatoos and the photo opportunities are endless. Your pilot will give you a commentary on the various landmarks below you and will be happy to answer any ballooning related questions you may have.

              At the end of your 30 minute flight you will gently land and disembark the basket before re-boarding the bus allowing passengers on the 2nd flight to board the basket for their 30 minute flight. When you're not flying you get to enjoy the experience of a balloon chase where you are literally chasing the balloon on the maze of roads that make up the valley.

              At the completion of all flights, passengers are encouraged to join in the fun of deflating the giant balloons before rolling them up and packing them onto the trailers. You'll have the opportunity to purchase in-flight digital photos and your pilot will present you with a souvenir flight certificate before returning you to your accommodation or drop off point for another tour.

              Bring out your inner dare devil canyoning in the Cairns rainforest where you abseil, zip line, slide and jump beside waterfalls and into pools. Crystal Canyon is located in a secluded section of Crystal Cascades where the excitement of canyoning a rocky watercourse can be enjoyed in a safe and controlled environment under the supervision of experienced guides.

              This half day canyoning adventure will push you outside your comfort zone as you tackle the challenges of conquering heights, boulders and mother nature in the pristine beauty of a secluded rainforest watercourse!

              Your day begins with pickup from your Cairns or Northern Beaches accommodation. Your group of 12 people maximum and 2 adventure guides (who carry all the heavy equipment required for canyoning) will be provided with all necessary safety gear including canyoning harness, helmet, shoes, long-sleeve thermal top for sun protection, neoprene shorts and a low-profile life jacket all padded to provide extra protection from the rocks. The adventure starts at the viewing platform at Devil’s Drop in Crystal Cascades where you leave the public access areas, for the higher reaches of the tropical watercourse. After a detailed safety talk and short walk up the track, your first abseil of the day is an 11 meter controlled descent down a huge granite rock beside the first waterfall in this section.

              Cool off at the bottom in the slippery dip slide, which will lead you to the next challenge and the biggest drop of the day - a 30 meter abseil down the Big Cheese! The course continues with a total of 8 rappels, 3 jumps, 2 slides and a very cool zip line! Along the way you will also have the use of hand lines to ensure ultimate safety. Keep your eyes open for wildlife including monitor lizards, birds and an array of colorful butterflies and dragonflies which can often be seen in the area.

              Upon completion of the course you'll enjoy a light lunch and comfort stop before being transported back to your Cairns or Northern Beaches accommodation.

              After morning pickup at your centrally located Cairns hotel, board your air-conditioned coach and head for the Atherton Tablelands, part of the World Heritage-listed Wet Tropics of Queensland.

              After about an hour, stop to check out the Cathedral Fig Tree, an enormous 500-year-old strangler fig with long aerial roots. Then continue your drive to Lake Eacham, formed by volcanic activity more than 12,000 years ago, in the middle of a pristine rain forest. You might spot turtles in the crystal clear waters, and you can hop in the lake while your guide prepares a hearty morning tea.

              Next up, visit Mount Hypipamee National Park to see Dinner Falls, another swim spot, then follow your guide on an easy half-mile (800-meter) walk to a lookout point to see what's known as the Crater. Peer down into the rim, situated a vertigo-inducing 450 feet (138 meters) below you, to see a jewel-toned lake.

              Getting hungry? You can pull out your own lunch when your stomach starts to grumble, or wait for a pit stop in the town of Millaa Millaa where you can purchase an inexpensive lunch. Rested and refueled, you'll head out to nearby Millaa Millaa Falls for yet another chance to dip into a spectacular natural pool.

              Josephine Falls is a highlight of the afternoon. A short walk brings you to the falls, where daring types can try out a natural waterslide that drops into a deep pool. Swim and soak in the beauty of this scenic spot, then snack on afternoon tea prepared by your guide.

              At the end of a full day, your guide returns you to your hotel in the evening.

              Please note: This is a sample itinerary. The route may change based on weather or road conditions.

              Enjoy the ultimate Paronella Park experience by taking in the daylight scenery and then delighting in illuminated after-dark views. This 8-hour tour includes entry to Mamu Tropical Skywalk with its 121-foot (37-meter) rainforest viewing platform, an informational presentation and swim at Josephine Falls, and wildlife spotting for a chance to see wallabies. When booking, you have the option to upgrade to include dinner.

              The World Heritage–listed rainforests known as the Wet Tropics of Queensland are more than 180 million years old—the oldest in the world. You'll be introduced to this fragile natural wonderland on your tour, which starts in the afternoon with pickup from Cairns.

              Head to Mamu Tropical Skywalk to marvel at the rainforest from the viewing tower, and visit two waterfalls in the area, including Josephine Falls for a chance to cool off or simply enjoy the sounds of the cascade. Go swimming in clear mountain water, and enjoy a tropical fruit tasting and afternoon tea. Your experience extends after nightfall, pretty much guaranteeing a sighting of nocturnal wallabies; on clear nights, stargazing is also a possibility.

              At Paronella Park, the highlight of your tour, admire the lush environment and Spanish-style buildings. You'll arrive at the park in time for sunset—the best way to appreciate the landscape. After dinner at the nearby Mena Creek Hotel (if option selected when booking; you'll have five dishes to choose from), return to the park for the 'Darkness Falls' illuminated castles and waterfalls tour.

              Your tour ends with return to Cairns.
