Cairns and the Great Barrier Reef region are exciting and exotic, offering visitors the chance to explore not one but two World Heritage-listed areas. Snorkel or dive in to the waters of The Great Barrier Reef to take in the astounding sight of the corals and marine life. Then explore Daintree National Park – the world’s oldest living tropical rainforest. Brave a bungee tower jump in cosmopolitan Cairns or relax in the coastal townships of Mission Beach, Palm Cove or Port Douglas. While you’re at it, head over to the Tropical Tablelands, venture across the Savannah Way or learn about the history and traditions of the area’s original inhabitants at Tjapukai Aboriginal Cultural Park. You can also trek to the tip of Australia’s northernmost point, the Cape York Peninsula.
