Cairns is the major holiday destination in Far North Queensland, attracting tourists from all over the World wanting to experience The Great Barrier Reef and the Daintree Rainforest. The city skyline has been influenced by tourism with most of the buildings comprising holiday accommodation. With tourism, comes a great variety of restaurants, cafes and shopping to suite every taste and budget. The Esplanade is the lifestyle hub of Cairns, with a large sandy swimming lagoon, grassy picnic areas, walking tracks, public barbeques, and children's playground. A great place to soak up the atmosphere and departure point for a cruise out to the Great Barrier Reef.
 
 

Touring Trips out from Cairns.

 
  The Great Barrier Reef is recognised as one of the Seven Wonders of the World and is World Heritage listed. It has recently been voted the World's best destination by the World Travel and Tourism Council. All compelling reasons why you should visit this remarkable natural attraction. There are many tours out to the reef catering for snorkeling, diving; viewing the reef from glass bottom boats or from a helicopter, or just lazing about on the deck of a sailing boat. All memorable experiences.  
  Port Douglas. The drive from Cairns to Port Douglas is considered as one of the most scenic in Australia. Just out of Cairns are the very pretty northern beaches including Trinity Beach and Palm Cove. Further north, and hugging the coast, the road winds it way past spectacular beaches and coastline. Port Douglas is a little town, BIG on character, atmosphere, hospitality and friendliness; an eclectic mix of people after a good time. The town has some wonderful restaurants and great Aussie pubs. It is a great town to make your base for trips out to the Great Barrier Reef and the Daintree Rainforest.  
  Daintree Rainforest. This area of Far North Queensland is often described as "Where the Rainforest meets the Reef." What a bonus this is for tourists! Two World Heritage listed areas so close to each other; yet so different and uniquely beautiful. Superlatives are simply inadequate in describing this place. You have to visit it to appreciate it. Visitors will find hiking trails, scenic lookouts and camping sites; however to get the most out of your visit to the Daintree, a guided tour is recommended.  
  Mossman Gorge - Mareeba. On another day out of Port Douglas you could visit Mossman Gorge in the morning, have a picnic lunch there, and then in the afternoon, take a drive in the hinterland to Mareeba. Mossman Gorge is only a short drive north of Port Douglas. Before your picnic lunch you can take a walk through the rainforest and cool-off with a swim in the rock pools. The afternoon drive takes you high up the mountains with spectacular views down over the coast. At Mareeba, sample the region’s renowned coffee before heading back down to Cairns.  
  Kuranda is a another major tourist attraction, just a short distance out of Cairns. There is so much to see and do in this picturesque mountain village, that you should allow a whole day for exploring, shopping and eating. A fantastic way to get to and from Kuranda is by the famous Scenic Railway from Cairns. A spectacular journey with magnificent views of rainforests, ravines and waterfalls. Another breathtaking way to get to Kuranda is via the Skyrail, with absolutely superb views down over Cairns and out to the Coral Sea. The village itself is a virtual smorgasbord of galleries, cafes, restaurants, arts, crafts, markets and indigenous culture; something to please every visitor and beautifully crafted souvenirs to take home. The village is surrounded by lush rainforest with thousands of plant species and precious wildlife such as the luminescent blue Ulysses butterfly and the Green Tree Frog.  
  Atherton. For a change of scenery and cooler climate take a trip up onto the Atherton Tablerlands. The farm and grazing lands are often referred to as "the food bowl" of Far North Queensland. Exploring the area around Atherton, the visitor will find many attractions such as spectacular lookouts and waterfalls, and the deep blue waters of extinct volcano crater lakes. Atherton is a good place to stock up on local produce.
