Travel Tips to Cairns (CNS)
Cairns offers endless vacation fun
The city of Cairns is situated in north Queensland and is one of Australia’s top holiday destinations for local and international tourists alike. Cairns is famous for its tropical environment, for its unlimited recreational and sports activities, as well as its many resorts with snow-white beaches and spas. Because of its proximity to the Great Barrier Reef and other diving areas Cairns has also become known as the capital of “diving”. Additionally, the city is also known as the starting point for flights to Cape York Peninsula, to Daintree Rainforest and to Atherton Tablelands.
Mamu Canopy Walk
Walk on a canopy walkway in the Wooroonooran National Park and see the wonders of the Australian rainforest, from interesting animals to a wide variety of plants. The path is divided into three parts. The first path is a ground level track (forest walk) that also offers disabled facilities and has a viewpoint overlooking the North Johnstone River. From there, the second part climbs up through the suspension bridges and goes over the top of the forest plants. Finally, the third part goes to an observation tower 40 metres above ground where you can enjoy the incredible vista of impressive rainforest.
Tjapukai Aboriginal Cultural Park
A stay in Cairns is simply not complete without a visit to Tjapukai Aboriginal Cultural Park. The park offers a versatile and interesting program that introduces you to thousands of years of history of the Tjapukai Aborigines. Exhibitions and live performances are built around the beliefs and culture of Australia’s native inhabitants. Visitors also experience the culture in form of dances, storytelling and paintings and the traditional Didgeridoo music is also a part of the exhibition. You will also be taught how to survive using spears and a boomerang. And if you are interested, you can take some small lessons to learn the important words from the Tjapukai language.
The Skyrail Rainforest Cableway
The gondola train “Skyrail Rainforest Cableway” travels 7.5 kilometres over the rainforest to take you from Caravonica terminal in Cairns to Kuranda town in the rainforest. The view from the gondola is simply breath-taking! This 90-minute-long journey breaks at two points to give you an opportunity to stretch your legs in the jungle and take pictures of cute Koala bears and huge crocodiles. When in Kuranda, don’t miss out on visiting the natives in “The Village in the Rainforest”. Book a cheap flight to Cairns with FlyDoha and experience all of this for yourself!
