If you’re looking for sunshine on your Aussie adventure, then heading to the tropics of Far North Queensland (FNQ) is the ideal destination for you.
The Great Barrier Reef is the highlight of any trip to FNQ. Right in the heart of FNQ is Cairns, which provides excellent access to the reef with daily cruises and helicopter charters available to its many islands and attractions. Allow your team to view this world heritage water wonderland from both above and below. Glass bottom boat tours are always popular with travelling teams, along with snorkeling with the creatures of the sea.
Cairns is home to a number of other unique sights including the Daintree Rainforest, the Kuranda Scenic Railway and Skyrail Cableway, and the Tjapukai Aboriginal Cultural Center, any of which can be added into your custom designed tour package.
If you’re after more of an animal experience, you can't beat a day at Hartley's Crocodile Adventures or Cairns Tropical Zoo, where you can pet kangaroos and cuddle with koalas. Relaxing on the beach at Palm Cove is also popular with teams heading to Cairns.
