Your 3 night stay at Silky Oaks is also combined with 4 nights at one of Cairns most popular northern beaches, Palm Cove. You’ll also have an opportunity to explore the outer reef including a scenic helicopter flight that will give you memories to last a lifetime.
Cairns is the 4th most popular destination for international visitors. It is situated on a coastal strip between the Atherton Tableland (part of the Great Dividing Range) and the Coral Sea.
Cairns is a major gateway to the Great Barrier Reef. It is the departure point for many day trips to the Atherton Tableland, Kuranda and the Daintree Tropical Rainforest. Flying into Cairns, one is struck by the lush tropical vegetation contrasting with the bright blue of the Coral Sea. There is a wide range of hotels in Cairns, both in the city itself and along the northern beaches heading to Port Douglas.
The Great Barrier Reef
The Great Barrier Reef is the world’s largest feature made up of living organisms. Stretching 2,600 kilometres (1,600 miles) down the northeast coast of Queensland, Australia, the Great Barrier Reef can be seen clearly from outer space.
Consisting of more than 900 islands and 2,900 individual reefs, it cannot be experienced by strapping on a mask, snorkel and fins and taking a casual swim from the beach.
The Daintree Rainforest has some of the most beautiful birds and the largest crocodiles you will ever see. The Daintree Rainforest is the oldest tropical rainforest on earth and is the home of one of the oldest Aboriginal cultures. It is a World Heritage Protected eco-destination and can be visited by any number of day trips from Cairns or Port Douglas.
