Cairns is the gateway to the Great Barrier Reef - the largest barrier reef in the world, considered a World Heritage Site. It is a paradise for divers and passionate by nature.
It is surrounded by a lush forest and miles of white sandy beaches and turquoise ocean with intense marine life. Inside, mountains and waterfalls draw amazing scenery with refreshing climate and provincial appearance.
From Cairns, you can easily travel to the Great Barrier Reef, Green Island and Fitzroy Island, Atherton Tableland and Kuranda. About 50 miles north, you will find the trendy Port Douglas and the spectacular rainforest of Cape Tribulation.
In their natural environments, Cairns provides plenty of radical activities, usually organized by local tourist agencies. Bars, nightclubs, restaurants, cinemas and theaters are also part of the lives of those who choose to study or visit Cairns.
This region also has a rich stronghold of Aboriginal culture, which has existed for about 40,000 years. The best way to experience it is to visit one of the local parks and cultural centers.
