Cairns is our home, and a beautiful tropical city renowned as the gateway to the Great Barrier Reef with its beautiful islands, and the World Heritage Wet Tropics Rainforest. Cairns and it’s surrounds are perfect for a self-drive holiday. Visit the beautiful rainforest-fringed village of Kuranda, or head north to the Daintree, enjoying the scenic vistas of one of Australia’s most celebrated tourist drives. You could even stop for lunch at Port Douglas or beautiful Mossman Gorge! For those that enjoy exploring inland, the Atherton Tablelands with their crater lakes, remnant rainforest, waterfalls and wildlife are a must – or you could get waylaid at one of the coffee, cheese or chocolate producers!
