The city of Cairns is located at the north of Queensland, Australia and has a lush tropical climate throughout the year. It is one of Australia’s most popular domestic tourist destinations, but is increasingly popular with international travellers now. Cairns is famed for its laidback ambience and tropical climate all year round. It is also the gateway to the Great Barrier Reef, which is one of seven natural wonders of the world. Snorkel, swim, sail, scuba dive, or even take a scenic flight to view the reef in all its natural glory. Be sure to check out the Whitsunday Islands, a chain of 74 islands that border the Great Barrier Reef. Some islands are made up of just a tiny strip of carol sand, while others are topped with palm trees and home to luxurious resorts. The largest island, Whitsunday Island, is home to Whitehaven Beach; one of Australia’s most photographed beaches with its 7 km stretch of white sand. Daydream Island is also close to Whitsunday Island and is home to a man-made outdoor aquarium, the Living Reef. For those who like the finer things in life, the luxurious resorts on Hamilton Island and Hayman Island are not to be missed. Qualia on Hamilton Island was awarded Conde Nast Traveller Readers’ choice 2012 Best Resort of the World.
With its tropical climate, Cairns is also home to the oldest rainforest in the world, the Daintree national park. View the park’s exceptional biodiversity on the aerial walkway or one of the many hiking trails. The park connects to the Great Barrier Reef to the north near Cape Tribulation; it is the only place in the world where 2 World Heritage Sites meet.
