Founded in 1876, the city of Cairns in the far north of Queensland, Australia, is a popular destination due to its relaxed ambiance, year-round tropical climate and proximity to a variety of natural wonders. There’s the nearby World Heritage-listed Daintree Rainforest, the planet’s oldest surviving tropical rainforest, as well as the tranquil village of Kuranda, which is home to colorful parrots, butterflies, platypus and fresh water crocodiles, and accessible by a scenic railway journey from Cairns. Located less than an hour’s drive from Cairns, the cool yet tropical Atherton Tablelands are set in rolling plateaus at an average of 700 meters above sea level, and are a true mountain retreat. And of course there’s also one of the greatest wonders on Earth: the World Heritage site of the Great Barrier Reef, filled with incredible beaches, coral reefs, and turquoise blue waters where you can swim, snorkel, dive and enjoy a living masterpiece that is so big it can be seen from outer space.
