Local Activities

DIVE THE REEF

The Great Barrier Reef is something everyone should experience at least once, and Dive The Reef is the perfect way to do it. It’s super easy (and affordable) to book your oceanic adventure online, with a complete index of all diving and snorkelling trips available from both Cairns and Port Douglas.

HARTLEY'S CROCODILE ADVENTURES

From crocs to cassowaries to slithering snakes, Hartley’s Crocodile Adventures is your ticket to witnessing the magic of Australian wildlife in its natural habitat. It’s based in the Wet Tropics heritage area, and is readily accessible from most accommodation in the region. Settings include gardens, rainforests and wetlands, with a licensed restaurant and gift shop also on the premises.

KURANDA KOALA GARDENS AND BIRDWORLD KURANDA

Available in one fantastic ‘Friends in the Rainforest’ package, Kuranda Koala Gardens and Birdworld Kuranda are the pride and joy of picturesque Kuranda Village. From wombats, koalas and kangaroos to lorikeets, galahs and cockatoos, you’ll be hard pressed to find a more comprehensive collection of adorable Aussie critters.

PARONELLA PARK

You won’t find too many castles in Australia, but you’ll certainly find one here! Paronella Park is 13 acres of sprawling lakes, tropical flora, cosy cabins and, of course, the towering centrepiece itself. This beautiful slice of paradise is State, National Trust and National Heritage listed, and has won almost too many tourism awards in its eighty-plus years to keep track of.

INTERESTING INFORMATION ABOUT CAIRNS AND AUSTRALIA

All this barely scratches the surface of beautiful North Queensland, of course! Discover more for yourself at the handy Australian Tourist Publications website, or ask the Sugarland Car Rentals team for a few ideas while discussing our vehicle hire service.
