      About this Cairns Tour

      Embark on an adventure through the gateway to northern Queensland. Cairns rolls out the welcome mat with its tropical culture, invigorating landscape, and swoon-worthy sights.

      Cairns' rainforests exude life and you'll find that at Flecker Botanical Gardens. Your guided walk reveals some of the oldest and rarest tropical plants in the world. Among this lush setting live unique orchids, exotic tropical fruits, bromeliads, giant bamboo, and flowering plants like the Red Torch Ginger. The gardens feature gently flowing brooks and waterways with small ornate bridges for crossing, adding a quaintness to your stroll.

      The energy of the Barron River electrifies the national park. Beginning in the rainforest, your walk leads you through a woodland area before descending to Surprise Creek. Relax to the sound of the falls and get lost in its tranquil, clear pools.

      As magnificent as its rainforests are, its beaches and Palm Cove is considered Cairns' best. Aptly named for the palm trees that line the shore, Palm Cove boasts an endless, sandy white beach overlooking rainforest-covered mountains. In a word, paradise. Much like Cairns itself. Contemplate all you've witnessed as you enjoy a delicious afternoon tea.

      The world's oldest living culture

      Meet the Tjapukai, the traditional inhabitants of the Cairns region. This aboriginal group, also known as the Djabugay, has lived in the rainforests behind Cairns in north Queensland for 40,000 thousand years. That's an impressively long time to maintain a rich and thriving culture. Descendants of the Tjapukai share and celebrate their history through aboriginal dance, playing of the haunting didgeridoo, and the art of spear and boomerang throwing.
