What to do in Cairns?

With the Great Barrier Reef and ancient rainforests right on our doorstep, you can choose a land, sea or air adventure from Cairns.

Here are some of our favourites:

Tobruk Memorial Pool - Flowrider
Test your skill on the Tobruk Flowrider and experience endless surfing fun.
Flow boarding is a hybrid board sport, combining the skill of snowboarding, skating and surfing. If you fancy yourself a pro board rider we suggest you choose our ‘stand-up’ riding option and encourage first timers to try their hand at ‘body boarding’.

Skyrail Rainforest Cableway
