the incredible natural bounty that surrounds it. Reminders of the
Great Barrier Reef, the local tropical rainforest, and the outback
that lies just over the coastal mountains are all over town.
The Great Barrier Reef
Cairns is the most popular gateway to the Great Barrier Reef. The
reef here is close by. In just an hours' boat ride. you can be in
the water and seeing it for yourself. Trips range from 1-12 days.
The tropical rainforests that surround Cairns are unique, beautiful,
and filled with plants and animals found nowhere else on earth.
Here you can find kangaroos that live in trees, mammals that lay
eggs, huge flightless birds, colorful orchids and countless other
species of plants and animals.
You can’t come to Australia and not head out bush and experience
the outback. Cairns is a great starting point for outback exploration,
especially during the June- November dry season, when temperatures
are comfortable and rainfall is rare in the outback regions.
