Tropical North Queensland - Region Information


Tropical North Queensland fits in more untouched beauty, ancient culture and adventure within its borders than some entire countries manage to do, with the World Heritage List double-act of the Great Barrier Reef and Daintree Rainforest it’s most prized stars.


Cairns & the Great Barrier Reef is total bucket list material. Snorkel, dive or join a live-aboard and share the water with curious minke whales and sea turtles. Zipline through the ancient beauty of the Daintree Rainforest and meet the local tree kangaroos or elusive cassowary. Tackle world-class mountain bike trails weaving through World Heritage Listed rainforest. Kayak, walk or gallop your way along Cape Tribulation beach – where you may not see another soul.


If you’re seeking a real connection to the land, you’ll find it in the stories, the smiles and the history of the Indigenous Australians who share their culture with you. Stand in the world’s oldest open-air gallery at an Indigenous rock art site. Learn traditional painting and hunting skills. Experience a spa treatment in a sacred rainforest cultural site.


Meander through the rainforest with an Indigenous guide who will provide an enchanting narrative of the rainforest and their special relationship with this unique tropical environment. Launchpad to (even more) paradise, while Palm Cove, Cairns and Port Douglas are the main ports of call, your holiday here among the palm trees is just the beginning. Discover the real meaning of untouched in the Torres Strait Islands.


Taste the tropics on a road trip through the Atherton Tablelands, sampling locally-made coffee, cheese, chocolate, liqueur and more. Become an outback adventurer on the Savannah Way and take the great 4WD pilgrimage to Cape York.
