Tropical North Queensland

Sun, fun and natural wonders!

Tropical North Queensland is a beautiful part of the world, boasting luxurious beachfront resorts, prime opportunities to explore the Great Barrier Reef and some of the most picturesque and iconic landscapes in Australia! There are three main holiday destinations within the region and each are equally stunning and unique! These destinations include Cairns, Palm Cove and Port Douglas, plus there are plenty of incredible activities, tours and sites to enjoy in between!

Cairns is the gateway to the Great Barrier Reef. This bustling, eclectic hub offers laid back city vibes and plenty of activities. From boat tours and cruises out to Fitzroy Island and the reef, to rides up to the Table Lands on the Kuranda Scenic Railway, visitors will never experience a dull moment here! Indulge in delicious tropical fruits and fresh seafood when you wine and dine by the sea, try your luck at the casino or dance the night away to live music. Learn about Aboriginal culture just 20-minutes out of the city at the Tjapukai Aboriginal Cultural Park or travel further north to see Mossman Gorge and the World Heritage-listed Daintree Rainforest.

Palm Cove and Port Douglas are both further north of Cairns. The journey takes approximately 40-minutes and 1.5-hours respectively and travels along a glorious stretch of untouched coast. Arrive in small communities and stay at accommodation just metres from the sand. These two destinations offer the complete resort experience! Indulge in fine dining, drinks by the pool, rejuvenating spa services and so much more! There are activities for the kids and romantic packages for the adults, plus they are both great places from which to explore the Great Barrier Reef and enjoy other tours.
