Cairns: A Family Favourite
Cairns is a family holiday favourite with Australian families and with good reason. There's a lot on offer.
Gateway to the Great Barrier Reef
Cruises to the reef depart daily from Cairns. You can make a quick day trip to Green Island and get up close via submarine, glass-bottom boat or snorkel to sea turtles, rays, trevally, and a host of colour coral fish. If you're really lucky you might even encounter a small white-tipped reef shark!
For the more adventurous or hard core divers, day and overnight cruises (including night dives) are on offer at many locations.
Wildlife on Display
From lions, tigers, bears, cheetahs and even hippos at the Kuranda|Cairns Wildlife Safari Reserve to the nearby Australian Butterfly Sanctuary (the largest of its kind in Australia), young and old will be enthralled with up close and personal animal encounters.
While in Kuranda (a mere 30 minute drive from Cairns), explore the many nature trails, hop on the scenic railroad, cable-car or the rainforest experience.
For encounters with some of Australia's fiercest, we also recommend Hartley's Crocodile Adventures - where crocodiles are a way of life!
With so much to do, there's no time like the present to visit Cairns with Skiddoo.
