Fall in love with Cairns by spending a full day and night on a group date with the Urban Adventures gang. Be swept off your feet by incredible views, get hot and steamy on a hike, and spend a dreamy night getting massaged and eating tapas on this Cairns tour.

Despite its size, Cairns has so much to offer. From its incredible natural beauty to its fun nightlife, here’s a chance to see and do it all, with a local guide - which, as we all know, means you'll get to see the very best of the best Cairns has to offer! 

Your Cairns city tour kicks off with a ride on the local bus, as we head for the wondrous Botanical Gardens. We’ll take the Red Arrow Track and follow it for a 40 minute hike to the top of Mount Whitfield where you’ll be treated to some incredible views. Drink in the fantastic vistas of Trinity Inlet, the city of Cairns, and its beautiful surrounding natural environment and marina - something you'll definitely want your camera for!

As we continue to tour Cairns, we’ll head towards the Aboriginal Plants and Gardens area along the Gondawanan Heritage Walk, where you’ll gain knowledge of the variety of medicinal plants used throughout history (and even today) all over Australia.

By this point on this Cairns tour, we bet you’ll be pretty hungry, so after a good stretch, it’ll be time for some lunch! We’ve got a picnic lunch planned, with locally caught fish and chips to indulge in. Tuck in and enjoy – you’ve earned it!

Full and happy, we jump back on the bus to go back downtown, where we’ll visit the iconic Dome for another elevated view of the city at sunset, kicking off the evening portion of our cultural tour of Cairns.

After the epic sunset, we head straight for the night markets. There’s so much to explore at the Cairns Night Markets, but we recommend starting off with a crepe (it goes really well with honey from the local honey shop across the way!). We’ll pay visits to several local artists, including Steve, a glass blower, and Glen, a didgeridoo player. You can see both of these artists in action, as well as many others.

From there, it’s time for a little relaxing - a pampering 40 minute massage awaits! Once you’re all relaxed, it’ll be time for a bite to eat. You’ll get to sample local cuisine appies like fish, beef, kangaroo, and crocodile – does it taste like chicken?! – before leaving the night markets and heading for the famous Esplanade.

Cairns is known for its ocean-front Esplanade, a picturesque boardwalk where we’ll give you some insight into the history of Cairns and share local stories before arriving at our last stop – one of a few of our favourite local hotspots. This final destination depends on opening hours, but there are a number of great local spots around here we can go to. If anything, we're spoilt for choice!

We’ll spend the rest of the night mixing and mingling with locals, enjoying a cocktail, beer, or glass of wine, and nibbling on some tapas, if you feel so inclined. Not a bad way to spend an evening in Cairns, don’t you think?

Ms. Jaime's review for another Urban Adventures tour
5 - Excellent
“I was lucky enough to have lovely Travis as my own personal tour guide last week and it was fabulous. I was clear to him from the onset that my knowledge of Prague's history was patchy at best, but mostly non-existent. I also told him I like beer. Both of which, were perfectly factored into the tour. It was honestly like cruising around Prague with a friend, and to places I wouldn't have known I about otherwise. Over the course we visited some places in the downtown area, before hopping on the metro to some of the 'cool' areas of town where there were some hidden gems, including a really lovely vegan cafe we went to for tapas after I explained that I don't eat meat. The food was great, and the company was easy. I freely admit that I'm a bt of an introvert, so initially a one on one tour was a little overwhelming. I think Travis recognised that, and soon the tour became more of a 'discussion' allowing me to be involved without any of those pressures that other introverts will experience in such a situation. And truly, after the fist 30 minutes, I was totally at ease. The booking process through Urban Adventures was super easy, and the tour itself was exactly what I was looking for. I can find all the major sites on my own, but I couldn't have gotten as much of Prague's history as I did without reading copious books (of which Travis was kind enough to email me some of the author's I should check out after the tour). I though Travis was a fantastic guide and I couldn't recommend him more. I think he must excel in these types of tours, since his is knowledge is obviously extensive. Thanks again, Travis :)”

“Vivian was absolutely brilliant. We had the luxury of only having two of us on the adventure and she made it an amazing experience. It was like three friends visiting the Wall together. The best experience ever”
