What To Expect
In Cairns, we love the outdoors, and this tour will get you up close and personal with some of our favorite things - hiking, gardens, nature, wildlife, and fish and chips!
In the morning, we kick off with a ride on the local bus as we head for the wondrous Botanical Gardens. We'll take the Red Arrow Track and follow it for a 40 minute hike to the top of Mount Whitfield where, no surprise here, you'll be treated to some amazing views. Marvel at the fantastic vistas of Trinity Inlet, the city of Cairns, and its beautiful surrounding natural environment and marina. It's a pretty breathtaking sight, so don't forget to take photos!
From here, we'll head towards the Aboriginal Plants and Gardens area along the Gondawanan Heritage Walk, where you'll gain knowledge of the variety of medicinal plants used throughout history (and even today) all over Australia.
At this point, we bet youll be pretty hungry, so after a good stretch, it'll be time for some lunch! We've got a picnic lunch planned, with locally caught fish and chips to indulge in. Tuck in and enjoy - you've earned it!
Full and happy, we jump back on the bus to go back downtown, where we'll visit the iconic Dome for another elevated view of the city. While at the Dome, you'll have the chance to try some of the optional ZOOm activities (at your own expense) and get a photo with a koala, if you fancy.
At the end of the tour, you'll have seen Cairns from several different vantage points, giving you a great understanding of just why we love living here.
