Cairns & Great Barrier Reef


This beautiful region of Queensland stretches from the town of Cardwell (between Cairns and Townsville) to the Torres Strait Islands, north of Cape York - the most northerly point on the Australian mainland. It’s famous for being the place where ‘the rainforest meets the reef’ and it’s rich in natural beauty and culture so it’s the perfect wellness destination.

Take a dip in a pristine swimming hole, walk mindfully through the ancient Daintree, paddleboard along the Mossman River, or connect with Country on a tour with a local Indigenous guide. Then savour the taste of the tropics with a trip to one of the many markets or follow a food trail to experience the best local produce.

During your visit to this unique region you can even give back to the Reef by supporting conservation efforts or by volunteering in rehabilitation programs.
