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.
