Cairns Great Barrier Reef Tours
Choosing the best Great Barrier Reef tour from Palm Cove can sometimes be a bit confusing as there is a big selection offering a wide range of locations and activities to suit all levels of swimmers, scuba divers, non-swimmers, children and elderly folks. You can choose to spend the day on an idealic tropical island, or an outer reef pontoon with all the water sport toys, or if you are keen to try scuba diving take a boat that has a roaming permit to ensure you get to see the best of the best in any weather conditions. Just as an added optional extra you can also take a scenic flight above the coral whilst you are out on the Great Barrier Reef and then you have seen the best of the best from above and below the reef surface.
Daintree And Cape Tribulation Rainforest Tours
The rainforest is such a charming place to explore especially on a hot and humid day as you can swim in the beautiful ocean or relax in the fresh mountain streams under the canopy of the cooling ancient tree canopies. Mother Nature certainly got it right creating these havens away from the heat of the day and making it so peaceful and so beautiful to be in amongst it all with all the birds, butterflies and other rainforest creatures going about their daily routines and maintaining and assisting to keep the rainforests alive and welcoming. A day tour to visit the Daintree and Cape Tribulation region is a must for everybody so you may learn about our fragile existence without these rainforest habits and learn how to preserve it for future generations to come or perish
Kuranda Village With Skyrail and Kuranda Scenic Rail
A beautiful rainforest village with a colourful history awaits your arrival at 380 metres above sea level were you will be greeted by the colourful explosion of the daily markets, street vendors, artists, musicians, tropical birds and butterflies. Your journey to Kuranda is all part of the attraction as you will be transferred by coach from your Palm Cove accommodation to either the historic Kuranda Scenic Railway which winds its way thru the hand cut mountain tracks and tunnels, past cascading waterfalls and dangerously deep gorges or to the Skyrail Gondola that glides over above the towering rainforest canopy. You can even pre-book a see thru bottom gondola or an open air gondola with no roof or side’s just railings to give your Kuranda tour and even more spectacular and forever memorable experience.
Scenic Flights-Helicopters-Fixed Wing Touring-Hot Air Balloons
When you are visiting an iconic destination in the world it is best to explore it anyway and every way possible so you can take in all its glory and its full entirety and flying around 500 to 1000 feet above the ocean or ground is the perfect way to see things and the most perfect of positions to take some memorable photographs. Choose from scenic helicopter tours to longer haul fixed wing aircraft adventures to an early morning Hot Air Balloon flight over the Atherton Tablelands. We have a wide range of scenic flight choices that combine both the Great Barrier Reef and the rainforest or you can design your own specific private charter itinerary.
Palm Cove and Cairns is the go to destination for any adrenaline junkie, dare devil or wanna be newbie dare devil in training pants. With a very wide range of weird and wonderful courage testing day tours and activities you will not be bored on a daily basis this is guaranteed! Try throwing yourself off an extremely high tower that is even higher than the ancient trees that surround it with a rubber band around your ankles, or jumping out of an airplane at 14,000 feet with the hope your parachute was packed according to instructions, or careering down a raging river just hoping you do not get tossed out and wedged in a rock crevice. Nah just joking all tours and attractions are highly regulated for their safety procedures so you can be sure you are doing ridiculously stupid things in relative calculated safety.

Atherton Tablelands And Outback Tours
You can choose to hire a rental car and self-drive around the Atherton Tablelands or if you are a new visitor it may be more interesting to go with a trained eco expert who can take you directly to the places of interest and tell you about the history of the region and all the other interesting little bits you would never learn navigating by yourselves. You will be taken to ancient volcanoes on top of the mountains that you can actually swim in and then you can visit waterfalls and take another swim, visit organic dairy farms and taste the produce, visit Spanish Castles in the rainforest, visit spectacular underground caves and much much more the Atherton Tablelands and the Outback really offer some spectacular locations to investigate as the region is so diverse
Private Charter Tours From Palm Cove
Whether it’s a small family group or a big conference it is sometimes best to have a private charter tour arranged to get you to all of the best tourist destinations and iconic landmarks around Tropical North Queensland with your own personal driver and tour guide giving you all of the local and historical information along the way. The same goes if you wish to charter a private boat to take you diving and snorkelling on the Great Barrier Reef or for a day of fishing to catch a big Black Marlin the private charter boat skippers know all of the most beautiful spots to snorkel and the richest grounds for a successful days fishing. Should you wish to charter a helicopter so you may see the reef from above the water and then fly over the magnificent mountains and rainforests then that is also possible from as little as 30 mins or a whole day.
