East Coast Australia travel guide

East Coast Australia - Cairns & the Daintree Rainforest (Chapter)

4th Edition Aug 2011

This is the Cairns & the Daintree Rainforest chapter from Lonely Planet's East Coast Australia guidebook.

Cairns has a heady reputation as Australia's reef-diving capital, with dazzling marine life and coral-fringed islands a short boat ride offshore, and as tropical North Queensland's party-central. Yet lush rainforest, waterfalls and volcanic-crater lakes lie just beyond the city limits.

  • drift up, up and away over the patchwork quilt-like Atherton Tableland in a hot-air balloon from Mareeba
  • maps
  • take an Aboriginal guided walk and swim in the crystal-clear waters of Mossman Gorge
  • transport
  • ride the Skyrail cable car through the rainforest to the alternative market town of Kuranda and return to Cairns by Scenic Railway
  • restaurants & accommodation

Coverage includes: Cairns & around, Babinda & around, Cairns' Northern Beaches, Islands off Cairns, Atherton Tableland, Port Douglas, Mossman, the Daintree, Cape Tribulation, and Cooktown & around.
