Explore the Great Barrier Reef

Discover one of Australia’s ecological marvels, the ancient Daintree Rainforest, with a cruise of the Daintree River and a full-day tour of Mossman Gorge Centre, including a Dreamtime Walk (a private tour along easy-graded tracks). Equally breathtaking is the Great Barrier Reef, the world’s biggest coral kingdom and a UNESCO World Heritage site. You’ll get to dive, snorkel and sail its life-rich waters on an Ocean Spirit Cruise - an exciting daylong getaway that also includes informative presentations by marine biologists, snorkeling demos, refreshments and more. Finally, you’ll visit the Cairns Tropical Zoo and have the chance to interact with a koala bear.

The Great Barrier Reef, located just off the coast of Australia, is the only one of the world’s seven natural wonders that can be recognized from outer space. Tropical Cairns, cradled by the phenomenal Great Barrier Reef, attracts adventurous travelers year-round with its rainforests, waterfalls and iconic native Aussie animals.
