Discover Your Local Tropical North Queensland Area
Tropical North Queensland is Australia’s heaven on earth. With pristine islands, tropical rainforests and coral reefs dotting the region, there is no place in the world like it. Plant your feet on soft white sand, dip your toes in crystal clear water and hike your way through lush green rainforests. Tropical North Queensland is a unique region just waiting to be explored!
One of the most iconic and most beautiful attractions in Tropical North Queensland is the World Heritage Listed, natural wonder of the world, The Great Barrier Reef. As the world’s largest coral reef, nothing truly compares to this magnificent natural attraction. Snorkel, dive, cruise, swim and parasail your way across the reef’s tropical islands – among the most popular are Hamilton Island and Daydream Island.
The Whitsunday Islands are the perfect starting point for a number of cruises out to the reef, however Cairns and Airlie Beach on the mainland are also gateways for the reef. Tour the Great Barrier Reef tour and pay a visit to Whitehaven Beach with the whitest, most pure sand you will ever see in the entire country.
An hour’s drive north of Cairns is Port Douglas, the only place in the world that is home to two World Heritage Listed attractions. Surrounded by the Great Barrier Reef and the rainforest of Daintree and Cape Tribulation, Port Douglas is a tropical environment like no other. The rainforest and reef open up a number of experiences and possibilities for visitors to the region. Relax on the white sand of Four Mile Beach or take an intimate, unforgettable dip amongst at Mossman Gorge, inside the Daintree Rainforest.
Venture up to the far north tip of Queensland to Cape York and Cooktown where you will meet with yet more unspoiled natural attractions. Explore Australia’s Aboriginal and pioneering history and explore the unbeaten tracks and depths of the rainforest by 4WD. There are many different tours available, whether you’re looking for a fishing, hiking, four-wheel driving or reef tour.
Australia is one of the most beautiful countries in the world, and with a visit to Tropical North Queensland, it’s not hard to see why. With so many underwater and above water natural attractions to explore, what are you waiting for?
