No trip to Australia is complete without exploring the wonder that is Tropical North Queensland. This is a region of truly spectacular sights, from the pristine corals of the Great Barrier Reef, to the beautiful and mysterious Daintree Rainforest, to the lush landscapes of the Atherton Tablelands. The coastline is punctuated by endless idyllic sandy beaches, with paradise islands sprinkled just off shore, while inland is a bounty of gorgeous waterfalls, stunning crater lakes and the otherworldly moonscapes of the Outback. And don’t even get us started on the wildlife. This place has adventure in its DNA.
The friendly city of Cairns is worth checking out for a few days in its own right: it has a great esplanade, some awesome bars and clubs, and a great backpacker crowd. It’s also the main hub from which to explore the wider region, with lots of hostels and major transport links, including an international airport.
