1. The Great Barrier Reef.
There are a lot of snorkeling and diving tours that you have to take advantage of! We snorkeled at two different locations, a open water excursion and at Bird Island.
They have it all! You can visit the zoo and see all of Australia’s indigenous species, then take a tour of the rain forest on an Army Duck or a “truck boat,” and then watch an Aboriginal dance and throw boomerangs.
3. Horseback riding at Mount-N-Ride Adventures in the Freshwater Creek State Forest Park on Lamb Range.
It was an amazing experience to explore the beautiful mountains on horseback and then ride the horses through a river!
Gilly’s is a great place to meet new people and it doubles as the biggest nightclub in Cairns!
