Discover your inner adrenaline junkie
The Cairns & Great Barrier Reef region gets the adrenalin pumping with tours that are wilder, faster, higher, deeper and most definitely better! And, of course, there are many which are not so extreme…
Raft the Tully River for an exhilarating ride to remember. Experience the heights of the Wet Tropics rainforest on a flying fox zipline or leap through the rainforest on a bungy cord to see the Wet Tropics upside down. Take a boat along the Daintree River looking for crocodiles or hook a mighty barramundi on a fishing adventure.
Diving offers unlimited adventures with shark dives, minke whale dives, giant potato cod feeding and encounters with a swirling vortex of barracuda. Learning to dive is an adventure in itself, speed to the Reef on a jet boat for an exhilarating snorkelling trip or have some fun on an underwater motorised scooter. Seaplanes and helicopters provide a memorable and spectacular view of the Reef or experience the tapestry of landscapes on the Atherton Tableland with an early morning hot air balloon trip.
Explore the region by kayak, jet ski, canoe, quad bike and mountain bike or join a guided off-road motorcycle tour to Cape York, the northernmost tip of Australia. Bush walking trails can be found throughout the region with the most challenging on the spectacular Misty Mountains Trail, a series of long-distance walking trails through high-altitude rainforest. And if you still haven’t appeased the daredevil within, then leap 14,000 feet from a plane over the Great Barrier Reef and its islands onto a beautiful sandy beach.
