Tropical North Queensland is host to two of Australia’s World Heritage-listed sites. The Great Barrier Reef and Wet Tropic Rainforest, making it an always popular destination for families year-round.
Tropical North Queensland is a destination of great contrast and beauty that’s ripe for exploration. Secluded beaches, lush rainforests, vibrant reefs and an endless array of water activities are just a few of the reasons to pick this spectacular location for your next getaway by the sea. The cosmopolitan city of Cairns and the laid-back Port Douglas are the main gateways to these natural attractions.
Then check out the farmlands and forests of Kuranda, the lush Atherton Tablelands, laid-back Palm Cove and the glorious Cassowary Coast.
Winter has exceptional weather, calm warm waters and pretty-as-a-picture backdrop of rainforest that is green and buzzing with life. Summer brings new life to the tropics. The regular rainfall and sunshine grows delicious fruit, lures out the wildlife and fills the creeks and rivers.
