Why Cairns?

The Reef

Cairns is often dubbed the ‘Gateway to the Great Barrier Reef’, and for good reason! Cairns is the perfect departure point for a day or overnight reef trip, with a range of different price and destination options available. There are dozens of reef tour companies in Cairns, so whether you’d prefer a relaxing day on an island or an overnight trip to scuba dive with sharks, Cairns is the best departure point for your Great Barrier Reef experience.

The Rainforest

Just a few short hours drive north of Cairns lies the World Heritage listed Daintree rainforest, home to the highest number of rare and threatened plant and animal species in the world. At 1200 square kilometers, the Daintree rainforest area is the largest chunk of protected tropical rainforest in Australia. While in Cairns, don’t miss your chance to see what Sir David Attenborough calls ‘the most precious rainforest in the world’.

The Food

Cairns is home to some of the best seafood and locally sourced produce available anywhere in Australia. A range of top quality local restaurants and cafes offer guests a chance to indulge in uniquely Australian flavours in a beautiful setting. Take a day trip to the Atherton Tablelands to sample delicious local wine, cheese, chocolate and coffee, or maybe just relax on the water with a cocktail!

Entertainment

From local live music and arts events to traditional Aboriginal dance and performances at Tjapukai Cultural Park, there is something to entertain everyone. Cairns is home to a range of local theater productions, musical events, and local art shows. Check out the local entertainment guides for more info! 

Adventure

If you’re looking for something more adventurous for your New Years escape, Cairns has a range of adrenaline-filled tours and activities to suit the whole family. From white-water rafting to off-road ATV tours to an up-close experience with crocodiles, you’re sure to find something to get your heart racing!
