Are you wondering what you can do in Cairns now that Covid-19 restrictions are in place? Cairns is home to a number of great tourism locations – perfect for our next vacay at home or within Queensland’s boarders! Cairns is home to the Great Barrier Reef, ancient rainforests, and of course Sugarworld Adventure Park!   

You can choose from a land, sea or air adventure in the magical destination of Cairns. No matter where you are from, how old you are, or how long you've been dreaming of visiting us.

Sugarworld Parklands 

Enjoy the amazing view of Sugarworld Parklands. This beautiful botanic reserve features 17 acres of fruit orchards and tropical parklands to explore. Here you will find free-roaming peacocks along with other native wildlife. This destination is only a short 20-minute drive from the centre of town! There are also BBQ and picnic facilities available for the whole family to enjoy. 

There is also an all-abilities children's playground and sensory space, as well as a volleyball court. All of this for the affordable price of $0, the Sugarworld Parklands offer free entry! 

Endless FlowRider® Surfing Fun at Tobruk Memroial Pool

Test your skills on the FlowRider® at Tobruk Memorial Pool and experience endless surfing fun! Flow boarding is a hybrid board sport, combining the skill of snowboarding, skating and surfing, all into one! This is then performed on an artificial wave acting similar to a treadmill!  

If you fancy yourself as a pro board rider, we suggest you choose the 'stand-up' riding option. For first-timers, we encourage you to try your hand at bodyboarding. A day at the Tobruk Memorial Pool involves fun in the sun for the whole family! 

This is a great activity to get you and your family/friends out of the house and experiencing something new! This activity is suitable for those young and old with the surf or boogie-board options. If the FlowRider® is for the kids but not quite your style, kick back and relax under the umbrellas and enjoy a cold drink while watching the others try their hand at it. Tobruk Memorial Pool is also a licensed venue selling cold bevvy’s and serving up some great food from the café! 

Sugarworld Adventure Park  

Cool off with family and friends at Sugarworld Adventure Park, located in Edmonton, Queensland – Only a short 20-minute drive from the Cairns CBD. It is a must-try adventure when visiting Cairns!  

Enjoy the many leisurely activities Sugarworld has to offer, including water slides, swimming pools, an interactive aquatic play area suitable for all ages, as well as a 9-hole mini golf course. 

Why not grab a mat and race your friends and family on our super-fast Mat Racer Slide? Alternatively, spiral your way down a triple-looped tube of terror on the Tandem Tube Raft Slide or smash the speed of sound and slide through the epic supercharged 100 metre water slide!  

If the slides aren’t your thing, you can indulge in a bit of friendly competition with the family or some friends and get putting on our 9-hole adventure mini golf course. Or you can sit back and relax with a cold drink in hand while watching as the others have a blast exploring what the adventure park has to offer. Sugarworld is a licensed venue with a fully functional café serving up all the summer favourites!  

Got younger kids that aren’t quite ready for the big slides? Sugarworld has a great interactive waterplay area called Splash Town! With seven slides, pools, a giant water bucket, fountains, waterfalls and water jets, it's the ultimate water splash zone. Splash Town's water world of discovery is suitable for children 10 years and younger (with supervising parents) and is designed to share the joy of water and develop confidence in little kids. Parents be warned, it's fun for adults as well!
