Boasting more Great Barrier Reef Tours than any city in the world, Cairns offers all visitor's a world class experience, from adventurous scuba diving to first time snorkelling options. For our personal favorite, check out Quicksilver to the Outer Reef. The largest commercial vessel in the region, Quicksilver travels to the Agincourt Ribbon Reef where it docks with an anchored pontoon. There you are provided with a seafood buffet, semi-submersible rides around the beautiful reef systems, all the snorkeling you can handle and an underwater observatory to safely view your swimming friends.

Let's Not Forget Self-Driving Tours!

Sure, its nice to go out on tours and have everything taken care of but as a car rental business, we understand the freedom that the open road provides. We have provided a brief list of some of our favorite spots and are sure that you will find them enjoyable as well. Often you can do 'tours' yourself at a fraction of the cost, so if you have an adventerous spirit make sure you check out some of these locations.

Kuranda


Kuranda is well known as "The Village in the Rainforest" and has been attracting visitors for well over a century. Initially people came to admire the mighty Barron Falls, while artisans were attracted to the region's natural beauty and decided to call it home, creating a vibrant arts and craft culture. Today people flock to this tiny village to enjoy both of these things, the stunning natural beauty and the relaxed atmosphere of the local markets, selling unique souvenirs and gift items. 'The Village in the Rainforest' is open 7 days a week, from 9am to 5pm, and we invite you to spend some time enjoying the many things to see and do in this little piece of paradise. For the local wildlife, check out Bird World, Butterfly Sanctuary or Koala Garden and if you're looking for a completely unique experience, stop by Rainforest Journeys, where you have the chance to see a Cassowary in its natural habitat.

Atherton Tablelands


People ask 'what is the best thing about the region?' Well, there's more than one! Firstly, the gourmet food and wine trails that criss-cross our 'food bowl of the tropics'. Secondly, our wildlife with a particular emphasis on bird watching and unique marsupials like the tree kangaroo. Thirdly, the waterfall circuits with their stunning rainforest backdrops and hidden gems. Finally, there's the region's natural wonders such as the Curtain Fig Tree, Lake Tinaroo, Mt Hypipamee Crater, Undara Lava Tubes, Broomfield Swamp, Paronella Park and the twin crater lakes of Barrine and Eacham just to name a few! Venture out, and discover how wonderful it is to stay at cosy B&Bs, timber treehouses, inviting inns, holiday parks and eco-lodges.

Port Douglas and Mossman Gorge


Surrounded by nature's riches of two iconic World Heritage areas, the majestic Great Barrier Reef and the ancient Daintree Rainforest, Port Douglas is approximately 70km north of Cairns, Tropical North Queensland. Founded in 1877, Port Douglas came into being as a port where riches from the goldfields of the Hodgkinson and Palmer Rivers were trafficked by bullock drays to be loaded onto vessels for southern cities. Today Port Douglas welcomes visitors from all over the world to experience the riches of this international holiday mecca which until as recently as the 1960s was a sleepy fishing village. Located in the southern part of the World Heritage Listed, Daintree National Park, Mossman Gorge is one of the few places in the country that visitors can gain an insight into the lives, culture and beliefs of Australia's Indigenous population and their connection to the natural environment. Join a guided Dreamtime Walk tour to get a deeper insight into the ancient flora and fauna of the rainforest, and learn about traditional plant uses and Kuku Yalanii culture.

Bushwalks and Swimming Holes


While the high season for tourists in North Queensland is actually the winter months between June-August, visiting in the summer has its advantages. If you do visit during the summer, we highly recommend doing what the locals do and heading inland to find a beautiful swimming hole to splash in. We have marked our favorites in bold but don't take our word for it, get out there and see for yourself!

Crystal Cascades and Fairy Falls, Oasis Waterhole, Ross and Locke, Little Mulgrave Swimming Hole, Harvey Creek, Babinda Boulders, Josephine Falls, Alligator's Nest, Stoney's Creek, Behana Gorge, Mossman Gorge, Davies Creek and Cardwell Spa Pool .
