From bungy jumping to snorkelling, from animal park tours to island hopping, you’ll never run out of activities in Cairns. It's the same scenario when it comes to views, your eyes will be continuously replenished with varieties of hues and sceneries. The only thing you will run out of is time, that’s for sure. So let's take a look at the must-visit places and must-do activities in Cairns so that you can make the most of every minute in Cairns and strike off this bucket list in style.

Explore the largest coral reef in the whole world, the Great Barrier Reef

Visits to Tropical North Queensland are never complete without a trip to the Great Barrier Reef. Cairns is undoubtedly the best gateway to the World’s largest reef and you definitely should not miss out on sailing to it while at Cairns.

The reef accommodates over 1500 species of marine life and an end number of colourful coral reefs of various sizes and shapes. Get onboard a Sunlover reef cruise and marvel at this beauty up close. You can also book tours which includes snorkelling with schools of fish wading through the azure waters of the Great Barrier Reef. If you are looking for something adventurous then choose a sea kayaking tour or outer reef dive which explore the greater lengths of the reef.

If you’re not keen to go underwater, then opt for a glass boat tour which lets you enjoy the lively marine life under the sea from a cosy seat of a well-equipped vessel. This cruise would be ideal if you have children who are afraid of water.

Theare the best way to explore the splendid precincts of the Great Barrier Reef. Offering different types of experiences and packages the sunlover cruise is the best in Cairns that bestows all types of aquatic activities like scuba diving and snorkelling.

Book Your Stay at Fitzroy Island

As all the attractions of Cairns can't be covered in a day's time, it would be ideal to book a stay. One of the nearby places where you can actually find a cool stay is on the beautiful island of Fitzroy. Being one of the 900 paradise islands surrounding the Great Barrier Reef, there is no shortage of views and the best point is that the island is only 45-minute away from Cairns.

The island is sheltered between the reef and is covered with lush rainforests. Book a penthouse, bungalows, a beach cabin, 2-bedroom suites or your own apartment. There’s more to this island than it’s amazing views, cosy rooms, fun activities and world-class accommodation.

Explore the National Park that is spread over almost 97% of the island via walking trails, steep hiking exploration and more. The Lighthouse and summit walk lets you watch the Great Barrier Reef from an entirely new perspective. The spectacular view up in the lighthouse tower and the majestic view from the summit is certainly worth the hike!

Stay a little longer to enjoy one of the spectacular sunsets Australia can offer.

Skyrail Rainforest Cableway

Hop on the Skyrail Rainforest Cableway and explore the World Heritage-listed Wet Tropics Rainforest as you travel above the towering trees. There are two stops for this 90-minute experience so that you get enough time to marvel at the natural beauty of the rainforest.

Kuranda is another tourist hotspot, a quirky little village located in the rainforest, is famous for its markets from where you can buy souvenirs and also taste their cuisine.
