Tours from Cairns

Start your adventure tour from Cairns

Cairns is the major gateway to Far North Queensland – a large region that spans tropical forests, coastline as well as an accessible outback region. Cairns is most famous for the Great Barrier Reef and Daintree Rainforest which are on its doorstep. It has also developed a reputation for being the adventure capital of Australia because of the diversity of activities you can do from Cairns.  

There is plenty to do in Cairns itself bustling markets, cafes and the esplanade complete with Lagoon for swimming in. So stay one or two nights before and after your tour. 

Tours leave south toward Brisbane and north to Cape Tribulation from Cairns. Further north of Cairns you will find the tropical Cooktown, the cultural home of Queensland.
