North Queensland is a popular tourist destination for both visitors from overseas and Australian residents alike. Rich in history and containing some of the world’s most impressive natural wonders, it is no surprise people keep coming back for more. One prominent destination is the city of Cairns, situated halfway between Townsville and Cooktown, along the coast of Queensland.
Some of the biggest draws for Cairns are its proximity to a number of natural beauties not found anywhere else in the world. These include the Great Barrier Reef, many national parks and the Atherton Tablelands. The Great Barrier Reef is the world’s largest coral reef and stretches over 2.600 kilometres. Whether you want to view it up close and personal by diving or snorkelling, or prefer taking to the air to see the coral reefs, the Great Barrier Reef is something you shouldn’t miss.
The Atherton Tablelands is a fertile plateau located inland from Cairns. It is part of the Great Dividing Range in Queensland and is popular due to its numerous freshwater falls and beautiful green countryside. Unlike much of Australia, the Atherton Tablelands are a damp green hideaway, showing the more tropical side of the country.
