Cairns Attractions

Cairns Attractions start with our Great Barrier Reef and Daintree Rainforest.   Nowhere else in the World do two World Heritage sites sit side by side.

Did you know that the Wet Tropic Region is the oldest tropical rainforest in the World?

While the Great Barrier Reef is the largest living thing stretching over 2000 kilometres along the Queensland coast of Australia.
