Things To Do in Cairns

There are lots of beautiful sights to admire in this natural paradise located in Queensland Australia. With Cairns’ natural forests, oceanic features and parks, there are many breathtaking sights to check out. Here are some things you can do in Cairns.

Kuranda Rainforest

The rich rain forest can be best viewed from above by use of a sky rail cableway but you can also explore it on the ground and connect with the indigenous trees and some amazing wildlife. An amphibious vehicle is also available for those who would like to glide to the water.

Tjapukai Aboriginal Cultural Park

Visit the park and get to know more about the culture of the indigenous Aboriginal people. Here you will unearth the oldest culture in the globe and be treated to a motivating photographic exhibition and films that show the history of the Aboriginal people. What’s more, you can try out the Djabugay special cuisine.

Undara Lava Tubes

These are arguably the longest and largest lava tubes in the world. When breeding season comes, micro bats and night tiger snakes wage war on the edges of nearby caves. It’s a spectacle you wouldn’t want to miss; don’t worry, the snakes are harmless. Again, you will never catch such sightings anywhere else.

Great Barrier Reef

The reef provides exhilarating adventures you will never forget. You can choose to swim with Dwarf Minke Whale at their favorite place- the ribbon reef, or you can watch the reef bounce back to life during the annual spawning. Get out of water to play for fun or for money on your mobile device.


The water near Frank Land island is crystal clear which offers perfect visibility for snorkeling. You can take the experience further from the beach where you will find beautiful corals, a wide variety of fish including the popular clown fish and turtles.
