The natural surrounding and the beautiful climate of Cairns are sure to enthrall you. It is close to the Great Barrier Reef and this is one of the primary reasons I decided to visit this city. It should be on every traveler’s bucket list. Here are some of the best things that you can do when you visit Cairns.

Go Snorkeling

Like I said it is close to the Great Barrier Reef and makes it one of the top attractions of the city. This is home to a wide variety of marine life has the largest coral reef system. I came to learn that there are 2900 reefs. See it up close by scuba diving or snorkeling. I can guarantee you that this is something that you are never going to forget. Apart from snorkeling, you can also book a tour.

Visit Village of Kuranda

I always wanted to experience a rainforest and Kuranda village gave me the opportunity. There are several amazing attractions like wildlife park and bird aviary. I also took a ride on the Scenic Railway of Kuranda. It is a steam engine train ride which takes you along a path with great scenic beauty. You can also take a ride on the gondola.

Drop-In at Crystal Cascades

Another fun thing that you can while you explore the Cairns rainforest is to visit Crystal Cascade. This swimming hole is surrounded on all sides by large boulders and also waterfalls. It is quite popular among locals and tourists are starting to discover it as well. Cliff diving is quite popular here where you can leap off a surrounding cliff into below water. However, if you are doing it all by yourself without any guide, you need to be very careful as it is a dangerous activity.
