Cairns is located in the northern part of Queensland and is the area’s core city. Cairns is located very close to the equator and is completely surrounded by tropical rainforests. With its long Great Barrier Reef, stunning coastline, jewel-like islands, silver-sand beaches and sapphire blue ocean, it is a true tropical holiday destination. While here, you can take a boat out to the world-famous Great Barrier Reef and check out the coral life beneath the sea. You can also go whitewater rafting, horseback riding, or take a trip in a hot air balloon for a bird’s-eye view of the ancient tropical rainforest. The beautiful scenery on the shores of the Pacific Ocean and inland is sure to come as a pleasant surprise. Once is never enough, when it comes to a visit to Cairns.
AllsuccessIt's nice to take children there. Appreciating the magnificence and beauty of nature, feeling the documentary-level scenery, and understanding the realistic scenes of geography and natural science are more important than anything else.
M18***13Ahhhhh Cairns, this is truly well worth visiting, and Green Island is just terrific, I was there twice, Cairns is great, I found it to be a safe city, great local people, just take the usual precaurions that you would take whilst touring anywhere
多多My little friend is very happy to go to Aquarium. Whenever he goes to a place, he will ask if there is an AQUARIUM first thing. I also went this time, the place is not too big, and there is no signature large-scale creature to sell the Aquarium in Hong Kong Ocean Park. Good. My water friend likes marine life very much. There is a blue-ringed octopus doll unique to CNS. He is very happy.
乖小咪Palm Cove is a beautiful bay and an important beach in Cairns. The sand here is as white as snow, although it is not very soft when stepped on, it is also very comfortable. There are many colorful houses on the beach, which feel a bit Southeast Asian style, very island style. You can spend a leisurely afternoon drinking coffee, eating seafood and enjoying the sea view here.

Thanksgiving day in Great barrier reef🦃️
re-edit today, more place is needed.
hope to meet our beautiful planet soon.
Because the shores of Cairns are surrounded by crocodiles, there’s no beach for tourists to visit that’s close to the city. Luckily, they’ve set up this huge outdoor public pool near the ocean that can be visited for free. It’s the perfect way to relax for a day before heading out to see the Great Barrier Reef. There are also tons of shops, restaurants and bars nearby to visit once you’ve finished your day at the pool. For visitors, there are lockers to keep your valuables safe and changing rooms. #wintergetaway #australia #cairns #queensland
If you’ve always wanted to see the Great Barrier Reef up close, then you’ve got to visit Cairns! Situated along the northeast coast of Queensland in Australia, Cairns is a major spot for adventurers seeking to discover the beauty of the majestic reefs. Book a snorkeling tour, or if you’re feeling adventurous, book a live aboard scuba diving tour, where you’ll stay overnight on a ship while you explore the area’s biodiverse marine life - and go on a night dive (if you dare!) Wake up early enough for the chance to swim with sea turtles. Who knows, you might even find Nemo! #wintergetaway
The most perfect island in Cairns called Fitzroy Island, spent out time wandering the beaches and swimming in the crystal clear water!
The Wondering Dreamer
In addition to eating at the night market, there is a restaurant in downtown Cairns that also wants a five-star recommendation. This is the Malaysian restaurant called Limmy. The most hearty and enjoyable place to eat in Cairns.
hot and sour soup: sour and sour soup is best for eating before meals, very appetizing, suitable for people who like heavy taste.
oysters: This dish is not what I like, just skip it, but it should be very good.
Malay fried rice: a super recommended food, southerners like to eat rice, this fried rice smells very sweet. (The travel notes are here to start swallowing water...)
Garlic green beans: This should be the most grounded dish. We ate Western food and meat for several days in Cairns. It was so touching to the green beans that the vegetables here seemed to be more expensive than meat.
Iron kangaroo meat: Come to Australia, kangaroo meat should be the most special food. Although there are many days in Cairns, the kangaroos have only been eaten here. I didn't dare to eat it. After eating it, I found that the taste was not so strange. If it wasn't for the boss's introduction, I might not have tasted it was kangaroo meat.
Location: Downtown Cairns, not far from the night market, walking can be found, Google Maps can be found by entering the name of the store.
What is the feeling of being chased by the Great Barrier Reef and being chased by a fish bigger than yourself?
From Hamilton Island to the Great Barrier Reef platform, whether it is an airplane to go back to the ship or a ship to fly back, there are 2 hours of free time on the Great Barrier Reef platform. This time can be arranged by yourself.
There are three options to choose from, snorkeling (free), semi-submarine experience (free), deep dive (own expense)
glass bottom boat: we found many people in the boat Line up to the dive boat, and ask for free, you will follow the boat directly. The warehouse is actually like a submarine. You can see the coral reefs and fishes outside when you sit in the cabin. The boat will open a distance and also have a The explainer explained to us. The whole journey takes about 30 minutes, and there will be a trip every hour, so even if you miss it, it doesn't matter. Wait for the next one.
Snorkeling and deep dive are actually in one area, which is about 50 meters around the platform. Although August was still the winter of the Great Barrier Reef, the temperature of the sea was not particularly high, but wearing the diving suit prepared on board, the water did not feel particularly cold, but I was the first time to snorkel and also wear diving suits. In addition to the gopro that I bring, basically all the diving equipment is on board. If you are diving, this is also the case. When we snorkel, we can even photograph them directly.
There are a lot of fish around the boat. There are staff on the boat who take pictures with professional underwater photography equipment, then return to the boat, and you can choose your own satisfactory photos in the iPad. Under the water, the photographer will take a photo of you and the big fish, and it feels great.
You must have never passed this tropical rainforest!
Through the world's oldest rainforest, explore the Cape of Suffering+Dan Cui Rainforest, experience the beauty of the rainforest in all directions, and finally the delicious ice cream from Daintree!
The northern destinations of Cairns are mainly Dain Couture National Park and Port Douglas. The entire national park is composed of Mossman Gorge and Cape Tribulation.
Dan Cui Rainforest National Park, along with the Great Barrier Reef, is listed on the World Natural Heritage List. Most of the area is surrounded by the world's oldest rainforest. It is home to 1/3 of Australia's frogs and about 430 species of birds. There are 13 homes that are not found in other parts of the world!
This is the entrance to the Daintree Rainforest National Park, a World Heritage area in a hot and humid area, an ecological evolutionary history of the Earth, coming soon Expand.
Dan Cui Rainforest lived a long time ago as an indigenous people. They are the Kukuya Ranji people, meaning "I am from the rainforest". In 1940 they were transferred to the Mosman region and became the real Owner!
Roller, strangulation, parasitic epiphytes, dripping tips, old stems and spring, the five wonders of the rainforest can be seen everywhere! The hike in the
Canyon is relatively easy, and the Mossman Canyon Visitor Center can also enjoy milk tea and sikang, which is a favorite of the locals!
You can take a boat to enjoy the birds, plants and crocodiles
riverbanks on both sides of the river are green and dense mangroves, densely rooted trees Intertwined, trying to compete for the space of life and working hard to breed
The captains here are particularly powerful, every time you can catch yourself to disguise yourself to the "crocodile" you can't find!
This crocodile must be hungry, always with a big mouth, ready to hunt food at any time!
3 suffering corner Cape Tribulation
This is where the British navigator James Cook discovered Australia! In 1770, the British royal family self-helped his expedition from the Pacific Ocean to Tahiti. As his fleet passed through this area, the hull hit the reef and suffered serious damage. Eventually Cook's fleet successfully passed through the Great Barrier Reef in Queensland. After crossing the Torres Strait between Australia and New Guinea, he immediately mapped the coastline of Australia. Cook claimed to own Australia in the name of the United Kingdom. At the time, the old name of New Holland was no longer used!
After suffering and regaining new life, this horn is named as the corner of suffering and also translated as the test corner!
Hiking in the tropical lowland rainforest in Cape Tribulation, as if returning to the scene of Captain Cooks landing for hundreds of years, the old vines still stand out, and the outside world has changed its appearance...
