Although not one of the most popular holiday destinations among Australians themselves, a trip to Cairns has become a must for international visitors due to its proximity to the Great Barrier Reef, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Now, this destination has transformed itself into a laidback and welcoming town that offers a wide range of activities for a holiday in Cairns.

Cairns Tour Reviews

4 - Very Good
Based on 5 customer reviews
Amazing East Coast Trip
5 - Excellent
  • Heather
“Booked this 14-day tour to get under the skin of East Coast Australia and was definitely not disappointed. This is no quick whizz up the Pacific Coast Highway, its a take the back roads adventure. Our guide, Ralph was so knowledgeable about everything Oz and his enthusiasm inspired the whole group to get the most out of the trip. Expect bush walks; wild swims in waterholes, lakes and waterfalls; fantastic scenery; opportunities to visit and interact with wildlife; kayak with dolphins at Byron Bay and snorkel or dive the Great Barrier Reef. Worries about being a little older were totally unfounded. If you are young at heart, reasonably fit and have sense of adventure this is the tour for you. Well done Via Travel, I look forward to another adventure very soon.”

Beautiful East Coast
5 - Excellent
  • John
“This was an outstanding two weeks. The East Coast is full of beauty and surprises. Out tour guide Ralph Giles was knowledgeable and courteous, and eager to share his love of his country with his guests. We recommend highly Via Travel.”

Cairns - Tour Highlights and Travel Tips

Tour Highlights

  • The outstanding attraction of the Cairns area and any tour in Australia is undoubtedly the Great Barrier Reef. You can organise diving, snorkelling or other trips while based in Cairns to see one of the planet’s most spectacular natural wonders.
  • Cairns has developed into a centre for adventure activities. Skydiving, hang gliding, bungee jumping and others are all offered here.
  • Barbecues are an integral part of Australian culture, and in Cairns, you can take advantage of the free barbecues located along the promenade to take part in this cherished Australian tradition.
  • Whale watching trips are a popular activity in July and August when humpback whales can be seen in the seas around Cairns.
  • There are good hiking trails around Cairns, and hiking enthusiasts should check out the trails in the forested mountains that surround the town.
  • Have a dip in the artificial ‘lagoon’, a large public swimming pool enjoyed by locals and tourists alike, free of charge. It is especially popular between October and May when the sea becomes unsafe due to dangerous jellyfish.
  • Another important natural attraction close to Cairns is the Daintree Rainforest, offering visitors the chance to catch sight of some of the area’s unique wildlife.

Travel Tips

  • Peak season runs from May to November. The rainy season begins in December with chances of flooding.
  • The centre of town is quite small and can be covered comfortably on foot.
  • For popular activities such as diving and skydiving, if you are willing to stay on ‘standby’ for a cancellation, then you can save a significant amount of money since many companies offer large reductions.
