Tropical North QLD

This stunning tropical region is home to two World Heritage Listed attractions: the Great Barrier Reef and the Wet Tropics Rainforest, which includes the oldest living rainforest in the world today, The Daintree. The breezy resort towns of Port Douglas and Palm Cove offer a cosmopolitan mix of fine dining, spa and leisure experiences for savvy travelers in idyllic palm fringed tropical beach settings. Cairns, the tropical North's thriving city base, is the closest mainland access point to the Great Barrier Reef and the hub for a visit to internationally-renowned tourist attractions such as The Kuranda Railway, Tjapukai Aboriginal Cultural Park and Green Island.
