Cairns Australia

Enviably positioned between two World Heritage-listed natural wonders – the Great Barrier Reef and the Wet Tropics – Cairns has understandably evolved into the Grand Central Station of tropical Queensland. Home to just 150,000 people, it has one of the busiest ports in the nation and over 600 tours depart every day taking visitors from the city to the region’s multitude of attractions; from the fertile farmlands of the Atherton Tablelands, to the ancient rainforest of the Daintree, to the world-famous reef.

Over the years, outside influence has added cosmopolitan sophistication to the laid-back, outdoorsy town and it’s now possible to go from bungee jumping before breakfast, to an exhibition at an innovative rainforest arts space, to dinner at an award-winning restaurant. With so much on offer, it's worth stopping to enjoy this unique city before jumping aboard that boat to the reef.
