Up there on most people’s ‘things to do before…’ list is a visit to the Great Barrier Reef. And no wonder, it truly is an awesome natural spectacle whether you explore it above or below water level. For a once-in-a-lifetime Australia trip, ‘Sydney, Rock and Reef’ is the classic combination and one that works exceptionally well. The advantage of accessing the reef from Tropical North Queensland is the added bonus of the Rainforest experience.

Although Cairns is the best known gateway for the region, there are many options for places to stay – Port Douglas and Palm Cove both offer plenty of choice for world class resort hotels. Or consider getting even closer to nature and get the best of both worlds by combining a few nights at one of the rainforest resorts with an island escape.

Cairns and the Great Barrier Reef Region

Cairns and the Great Barrier Reef region is Australia’s premier tropical escape combining some of the world’s most breathtaking scenery with a diverse range of activities. The environment is as unique as it is diverse – the reef, rainforest and outback.

Nowhere else on earth do two World Heritage listed sites sit side by side; the Great Barrier Reef and Australia’s tropical rainforests, two areas renowned for their scientific value and beauty.

In contrast to the aqua and green colours of the reef and rainforest coastline, are the rustic and open spaces of the Tropical Savannah and Cape York Peninsula wilderness areas that are home to mythical geological and cultural wonders.

Other serene settings include the Cairns Highlands – a patchwork of farmlands, rainforest and lakes offering a cool rural retreat from the coast and the beachside hamlets that make up the Great Green Way. From Cairns, stunning beaches stretch along the coast including the popular boutique destinations of Palm Cove, Port Douglas, the Daintree, Cape Tribulation and Mission Beach. Quieter beach havens include Trinity Beach and Yorkey’s Knob. Dotted along the coast line are no less than ten of the Barrier Reef’s premier Tropical Islands.
