With World Heritage listed Great Barrier Reef, the majesty of the Daintree Rainforest and a textbook tropical climate, you might think that the Far North Cairns region is a nature lovers paradise - and you would be right.The city of Cairns is a vibrant, eclectic mix of stylish shops and restaurants with funky cafes and eateries. Boasting a modern infrastructure of rail terminals, air and sea ports, Cairns is a popular holiday destination, regardless of your mode of transport. Many heritage listed buildings can be found in and around the city. Take a trip on the scenic railway that winds gently through the rainforest to the picturesque village of Kuranda. Accommodations of Trinity Beach offer some of the most serene coastal views of Tropical North Queensland with the beach itself holding popularity amongst the locals. Rainforest surrounds the beach community of Palm Beach, so named for the trees that line the foreshore. Both the palms and 500year old Melaleuca trees provide natural shade on the beachfront whilst Surf Lifesaving beach patrols cast a watchful eye over the water. Cairns Zoo is located at Palm Cove as is the Palm Cove Country Club, golf course and sports centre. If action sports are what you have come for, then Cairns has that covered too. Have a go at cable-skiing at Cable Ski Cairns, "Queensland's one and only Cable Water Ski Park". The "Ultimate Adventure Company" AJ Hacketts can take you bungy jumping. Or get the heart pumping in a different way with a cruise along the Daintree River, amongst fresh water crocodiles. Visit the Tjapukai Aboriginal Cultural Centre and learn about the traditional owners of this incredible part of Australia. Experience the magic of the Daintree Rainforest from an eco-lodge deep within the planest's oldest surviving tropical rainforest. The local Aboriginal people named this place "Wawu-karrba" - healing of the spirit - and it's easy to see why. The aerial walkway or any of the numerous hiking trails will show the diversity of life found in the rainforest.Approximately an hour's drive north of Cairns is Port Douglas. Staying happily out of the limelight, Port Douglas was relatively undiscovered until the 1980's. But unlike so many holiday destinations, "The Port" still holds tightly to its reputation as a tranquil, tropical retreat. Relaxed Sunday markets, snorkelling at Agincourt Reef, sailing to the Low Isles to, perhaps, swim with a turtle or tee off at arguably one of the most picturesque golf courses in the world - Port Douglas is truly one of Australia's best kept secrets.Further to the north, be immersed in indigenous heritage, culture and tradition at the Mossman Gorge Centre. Cape Tribulation, located within the Daintree National Park and the Wet Tropics World Heritage Area, is another area holding great cultural significance amongst the local indigenous people.So, if you are drawn by nature to a place of beauty and majesty, it's all waiting for you, along with the fine Bed and Breakfast Accommodations of the Far North Cairns Region.
