Feel the vibrant tropical culture of Cairns, home of the Great Barrier Reef & abundant lush rainforests from atop a double-decker bus. This hop-on hop-off adventure hits the city's top attractions, giving you plenty of time to explore this Far North Queensland township.

Climb aboard and zip around town, hopping on and off at your leisure to explore the sun-soaked wonders of Australia. At The Pier terminal bus bay take a long look out onto the Esplanade where the local mangroves grow in the coastal wetlands. At the Wildlife Dome and Casino, hold a cuddly koala or laugh with the native kookaburra. Visit an array of local hot spots including Cairns Night Markets, Cruise Liner Terminal, Gilligan’s Resort and Muddy’s Children Playground, Waterpark & Café.

Visit Tjapukai Aboriginal Cultural Park—located at the foot of Skyrail Rainforest Cableway. Immerse yourself in one of the world’s oldest living cultures. Be fascinated by the didgeridoo show and Torres Strait Islander Dance performance. Wander to Skyrail and hop onto the cable car which runs over 7.5km of rainforest and gorges to Kuranda Village.

To check out the city's shopping and entertainment scene, explore Cairns Night Markets, Gilligans Resort, Rusty’s weekend fresh food markets, or The Jack Hotel and Beergarden for eateries, and buzzing bars.
