Cairns & Queensland Hotel Guide & Local Info
Cairns pronounced “karens,” is probably one of the best cities in Australia to take a trip to see the Great Barrier Reef. Other nearby attractions include the Daintree Forest which is the worlds oldest rainforest (even older than the Amazon), and day cruises along the riverboats where one can spot snakes and crocodiles, or guided hiking trips are also a great option for travelers to the rainforest. Visiting the “Night Zoo” in Cairns is also one of the most entertaining exhibits where one can see and experience all of the night-time animals that are native to Australia. Kangaroos roam wild in Australia much like deer in the United States although surprisingly they can be as abundant as rabbits or squirrels, and they can literally seem to be everywhere…Be careful not to hit one while driving. “Lunch with the Lorikeets” is also a great wildlife exhibit where many of the wild animals of Australia can be seen in a zoo like enclosed atmosphere. Don’t forget to catch a hot air balloon ride to see the coast fromabove and see all of the beauty and splendor that Cairns and greater Queensland has to offer.
