Cairns, Australia

A popular gateway to the Great Barrier Reef and the vast wilderness of Cape York Peninsula, the major centre in Tropical North Queensland is Cairns. The city is fringed by lush rainforests and, to the north and south, are miles of white sandy beaches and turquoise oceans teeming with marine life.

From the reef to the rainforest and from Smithfield, an outer suburb, take the Skyrail, a gondola cableway over the rainforest to Kuranda, a picturesque village on the edge of the Tropical Tablelands. Visit a range of unique natural and cultural attractions, go for a cruise on the river, or shop for local art and crafts and at the end of the day take the famous Kuranda Scenic Rail back to Cairns.
