Skyrail Canopy Glider Experience Tours

Great Barrier Reef Tours

The Great Barrier Reef is the number one reason millions of visitors make the long journey to Cairns and Tropical North Queensland Australia. Listed here are the best Great Barrier Reef tours with extensive options available. Browse the snorkelling tours, the Outer Barrier Reef tours, the day tour cruises to the beautiful islands of the Great Barrier Reef. Research the live aboard scuba diving tours and dive certification courses on offer. Spend a full or half day snorkelling or scuba diving. Experience a semi-submersible submarine or have a ride on an under – water scooter with Scubadoo or even give helmet diving a go.

Rainforest Tours

Cairns and Port Douglas are surrounded by World Heritage Rainforests that are teeming with ancient trees supporting a fragile existence to some of the rarest and oldest animal species and birds on the planet. Whilst visiting we would highly recommend you spend a day in these cool forests to get an understanding of the importance of these regions to everyone’s lives and to experience the natural formations and beauty of the land. Waterfalls, rivers and streams, wildlife, smells and colours are all yours to explore. Add in a visit to the village of Kuranda on the Scenic Train and Skyrail Gondola as this is a definite must do tour for everyone who visits Cairns.


Every holiday destination has tours that are more popular than others and the reasons for this can be many and varied. We have put together a list of the most popular tours for the region so you to make your own choice. Just to give you a heads up hint the most popular tour is a day out snorkelling and diving on the Great Barrier Reef so please ensure you book that trip early. Another popular tour in Cairns is the Skyrail Gondola and the Kuranda Scenic Railway both of which take you on an exciting journey up the McAllister Ranges to Kuranda. For the adventurer and thrill seekers there is extreme white water rafting, skydiving, deep sea fishing, quad biking and much much more.

Scenic Flights

When travelling to an iconic destination the best way to really experience it is flying 500 feet above the ground so that you can take in all its magnificance and beauty. If you would like a birds eye view of two iconic World Heritage listed sites you definitely should book a helicopter safari over the Great Barrier Reef and the Rainforests of the Daintree and Cape Tribulation regions. Your scenic flight options can be in a helicopter, a fixed wing aircraft or a Seaplane and they can take you to exotic places like Lizard Island, an outback cattle station, the Undara Lava Tubes or even up to Cape York for some Barramundi fishing or to see Cooktown for the day.

Private Charter Tours

If you are planning on a luxury holiday under a short time limit and you wish to see as much of Cairns and the Great Barrier Reef as possible, then doing some private tours in chauffer driven limousines or a private helicopter and boat charters may just be the best option for you. Speak with our team about your options and the availability to charter a luxury private yacht or motor boat to take you to snorkel the reef or take a scenic helicopter flight to the Australian outback. There are so many options for you to enjoy a luxury holiday in Tropical North Queensland. Contact our team so they can plan and schedule all of the itinerary for you seamlessly

Outback Adventures

If it’s an Australian Outback adventure you are after then Tropical Far Northern Queensland can offer it to the most adventurous of travellers. With trips departing daily to the Atherton Tablelands, Cooktown and Cape York you are sure to find an amazing outback tour. For self-drivers or folks that would like to hire a private charter plane or helicopter, Undara Lava Tubes or Chillagoe Caves make a great outback experience. For Aboriginal rock paintings and a history lesson of the settlement of Australia then take a 3 day tour of Cooktown and the outback Savannah. Cattle stations, termite mounds, granite rocks, kangaroos, brumbies, and wildlife are all yours to enjoy

Tropical North Queensland Fishing Tours

Fishing in Cairns and Tropical North Queensland is normally on the bucket list of most fishermen and fisherwomen as these northern waters are clean and fertile and just teaming with a great wide range of fish from sports fish to table eating varieties. At varying times of the year out on the Great Barrier Reef you will come across species that will have you tied down in the seat for hours on end with a man and fish fight to see who can last the distance. Book your seat on a Cairns and Port Douglas Great Barrier Reef and Estuary fishing tour today to ensure you do not miss the action on the water

Airport Transfers, Car Hire & Campervan Rentals

When on holidays it is nice to have either your own rent a car or a luxury limousine hire car with a driver to take you directly to where you want to go. Holidays are for relaxing so let someone else do the driving for you. Transfers are from the Cairns International and domestic airports and can be arranged for as far south as Mission Beach and as far north as Port Douglas. Should you be booking accommodation in the Daintree and Cape Tribulation region please speak to our team about your airport transfers at the time of booking your accommodation.
