A melting pot of urban luxury, bespoke experiences, natural beauty and unique Australian hospitality, the coastal city of Cairns is the tropical north gateway to the Great Barrier Reef and World Heritage Wet Tropics Rainforest. Inspire, surprise and delight in this modern urban jungle.

Offering Australia’s largest concentration of eco-certified experiences, two indigenous cultures and two world heritage icons, create an itinerary to sustain the environment and the soul.

Tantalise your taste buds and savour the view with a tropical welcome lunch overlooking the lush, sprawling oceanfront. Experience a Welcome to Country and Smoking Ceremony followed by a walk along the Mayi Bugan Rainforest Trail to discover native foods and bush medicines while learning about ancient Aboriginal traditions, customs and artefacts. Check-in and checkout the world-class hotels before taking over a fleet of Queensland fishing trawlers for a private seafood extravaganza on the water overlooking the lights of the city before moving on to your exclusive speakeasy cocktail bar to sample the best of Cairns & Great Barrier Reef’s unique, locally distilled gins featuring native botanicals of Davidson Plum, juniper berry and lemon myrtle.

The Great Barrier Reef is the largest coral reef in the world and the only living organism that can be seen from space.

A marine biologist will deliver Reef education talks, including how visiting the reef contributes to its conservation. Consider a turtle release, where a rehabilitated turtle is taken out on the boat, and delegates get involved in the release. Learn about the Indigenous relationship to the reef on a private snorkel with a cultural guide so you can understand their ancient relationship to the ocean and its surroundings.

From the reef to the rainforest, be surprised by your very own pocket of rainforest. Dine under the starsand twinkling lights of the oldest living rainforest in the world, indulge in native foods, and be warmed by Queensland hospitality.

Glide above the rainforest canopy in a glass-floor gondola before stepping onto the boardwalk to soak up the wonders of the world’s oldest living rainforest with a guided walk and view of the magnificent Barron Falls from the glass platform.

Tonight is about immersing in Cairns’ agricultural tradition, with sunset drinks on the lounge and dinner with a fiery twist on a working sugar cane farm. Watch the sun set behind the majestic mountains of the Great Dividing Range before feasting on the best of tropical Australia’s food bowl and dancing the night away under the stars.
