Unless you’re a little less than stable on your sea legs then you’re probably going to want to get out onto the water in one way or another. Whether you would prefer to explore the reef or the river by boat, kayak, canoe, helicopter or seaplane there are a plethora of tours that operate all year ‘round in and around Cairns. For fans of snorkeling or scuba diving you’ll be richly rewarded with tour operators offering shark dives, whale watching, giant potato cod feeding and all kinds of opportunities to get up close and personal with marine life.

If a near brush with a shark or crocodile isn’t adrenaline inducing enough then why not go on a tandem skydive? Skydive Cairns are a well respected local business offering a 15,000 ft free fall drop above Cairns with views to the Daintree and across the Great Barrier Reef.

You won’t be able to get to over half of the popular destinations in Cairns without access to a vehicle. If you’ve flown in then there is no need to stress with Budget Car Hire operating directly out of Cairns International Airport. Booking your car rental is so simple with Skedaddle, leaving you with more time to plan your holiday and less time worrying about how you’ll get around.
