Cairns - Holiday Tour Packages
Cairns is an unique travel destination all on its own, but it will always be known as the gateway to the Great Barrier Reef, the world’s largest barrier reef system. While it draws tourists from all over the world, this cosmopolitan city especially caters to Japanese tourists that most shop signs are written in both English and Japanese. Nonetheless, Cairns is for everyone.
Because of its location, sightseeing & activities in Cairns, can be enjoyed in a mix of urban and natural settings. As part of the Tropical North Queensland, with the heat coming from the Great Barrier Reef, the city has a warm, tropical feel that is kept balanced by the Wet Tropics rainforest. This makes Cairns a vibrant travel destination, energised by Mother Nature.
Top Tourist Attraction of Cairns
Some of the attractions you must see include the Centenary Lakes that feature a rainforest boardwalk that stretches right through to creeks and lakes. Opposite it is the Botanic Gardens, making the famous lake a must-visit during your vacation. You will see plenty of natural attractions in most of the holiday packages to Cairns, because it is what the city has an abundance of. These include the Mount Whitfield Conservation Park, Lake Placid, City Botanic Gardens, and Smithfield Conservation Park.
Then, there is the Cairns Regional Gallery and Cairns Museum that will take you out of nature and right into a historical journey to the past or even the unknown. The city also has several heritage-listed sites, such as the Abbott Street, Cairns Railway, Collins Avenue, The Esplanade and Wharf Street. Most of the heritage sites are roads and streets, giving you plenty of venues to enjoy a leisurely walk and discover what makes them worthy of being a heritage site.
Things to do in Cairns
Between Cairns and Northern Beaches, you can enjoy plenty of things to do: sailing aboard luxury boat charters, jet boating, taking a sunset cruise, jungle trekking, and driving through the Kuranda Scenic Railway, to name a few.
There are plenty of ways to experience and explore the Great Barrier Reef. You can scuba dive and get up close and personal with the marine wonders under the iridescent, blue waters. Sign up for a flight and air charter to get a view of the reef from the top, or go kayaking close enough to get a glimpse of what is hidden beneath the water’s surface.
One thing you must not miss, however, is to make the most of a popular promenade in Cairns. Here, there are several things to do during your holiday. You can swim in the artificial lagoon on the promenade near the pier, sunbathe on the grassy area, have a barbecue or just take a leisurely stroll. If you are looking for something more exciting, look for holiday packages that offer a trip to Cairns Wildlife Dome, whale watching and mountain bike tours.
The waves may come and go, but the beauty of Cairns and the Great Barrier Reef remains. But now is the best time to travel to Cairns and spend a nice long vacation worth remembering.
