There’s no question that you’ve come to northern Queensland to see the famous Great Barrier Reef, one of the most accessible and beautiful coral reefs in the world, teeming with marine life who are happy to swim right up to the glass of your mask to say hello. Spend your first day out there, snorkeling, floating, or just looking through a glass-bottomed boat.
Daintree Rainforest and Cape Tribulation are two of the most beautiful places in the world. No visit to north Queensland is complete without visiting these areas. From Port Douglas you’ll travel some of the most scenic coastal roads in Australia as you head north. Walk the beach of Cape Tribulation, experience the rainforest and the wildlife of the Daintree River.
In case all that wasn’t enough for you, spend your final day seeing it all from a different angle. Take a hot air balloon ride, or a scenic train ride through the rainforest out to Kuranda where you can wander through a heritage market.
