Many Cairns accommodation apartments are nestled within the charming coast in Queensland, Australia. While here, you can explore its abundant tropical scenery. Taking advantage of its wealth of rainforests and parks, the city hosts one of the Skyrail Rainforest Cableway stations at its Caravonica Terminal. However memorable the experience of gliding over wildlife may be, hopping on one of the cable cars is not the only way to enjoy the views. You can also choose to take to the waters or soar through the clouds and still get a taste of Australia's northeastern corner.
Joy Flight Adventures
A joy ride to and from the Cairns vacation homes can be stepped up to the next level by getting in your preferred aircraft and observing the lush forest views from the skies. For a quick 10-minute trip, you can try Down Under Helicopter's Cairns Township Tour to admire the city's architecture, its Esplanade and lagoon, and idyllic marina. Their choppers can also take you through Barron Gorge and over the secluded rainforest town Kuranda. Waterfalls, blankets of trees, and beaches await you on this flight.
You can combine a luxurious lunch with wine on the white beaches of Sand Cay with some snorkeling at its half-day Fantasy Flight. The fleet at Daintree Air Services can also whisk you farther away from Cairns to visit its neighbors Lizard Island, Cape York, and even Brisbane. To get the literal looping views of all these, you will have to hook up with Warbird Air Adventures and pick from among their aerobatic flights. Their Nanchang CJ-6A fighter planes are your mean but eco-friendly companions to flights that can be as slow and lazy or as raging and heart-pumping as your stomach can take. This can include an upside-down glimpse of the Barrier Reef, if you wish. You can dictate how tame or extreme you want the dips and other maneuvers so you will be sure to have a rolling good time.
Hot Air Balloon Trips
For a more serene way of gazing down at Australia's tropical paradise, Queensland Balloon with Hot Air can charm you with the romance of ballooning at sunrise. From the moment the colorful balloon inflates to your lovely breakfast by the beach, this relaxing trip will allow you hours of opportunities to photograph the scenery around and below you.
Right at Cairns' backyard is the Trinity Inlet that is home to crocodiles, bird species, and plant life unique to the mangroves in the area. Twice daily, the MV Crocodile Explorer will leave Cairns to treat its guests to a tour near these natural inhabitants as well as a visit to a crocodile farm. If you want to pack in many activities in one package, you can avail of Reef Magic Cruises' 2 Day Reef and Rainforest Experience wherein 5 hours of fun, snorkeling, and underwater viewing of corals and marine life is thrown in along with a buffet lunch. Diving and helicopter rides are extra.
