Cairns, Port Douglas, Palm Cove and Surrounds
Cairns is the most popular destination of Far North Queensland. Here it is all about the excitement of city life combined with a holiday atmosphere. You'll encounter great shopping, international restaurants, museums, galleries, attractions, animated nightlife, and much more.
Beach lovers will be spoiled for choice with some of Australia's finest beaches - including Holloways Beach, Yorkeys Knob, Trinity Beach, Clifton Beach and Palm Cove - all within easy reach of Cairns. Trendy and friendly, they offer a good alternative for people who want to escape the rush of the city without giving up all the facilities.
Up in the Cairns highlands, but still extremely easy to access, is the picturesque mountain village of Kuranda. Accessible from Cairns via the Kuranda Scenic Railway or Skyrail Rainforest Cableway, it's well worth a visit.
