Cairns Australia (pronounced “cans”) is a laid-back, yet cosmopolitan-style escape, offering access to exotic tropical cuisine, shopping,
A taste of Aboriginal culture, and a range of adventure touring options. A 45 minute drive from Port Douglas along one of Australia’s most scenic roads makes this a must do on your stay at Nimrod Resort.
With hundreds of day tours operating out of Cairns each day, you will never be short of something to do.
You can go white water rafting, reef fishing, or take the bungee jump plunge. Or you can indulge in more laid-back pleasures like floating over the lush rainforest of the Atherton Tablelands in a hot air balloon or teeing off amid palm trees overlooking the Coral Sea.
Shoppers should head for the new Cairns Central complex and the Pier Marketplace – a shopper’s heaven providing a range of international and local wares.
Top of the list for culture vultures should be Tjapukai Aboriginal Cultural Park. Tjapukai is amazing, combining culture, entertainment and education. Visitors are treated to authentic dancing, demonstrations of traditional foods and medicines, and can even learn how to throw a boomerang so that it comes back!
Alongside Tjapukai is the environmentally stunning Skyrail, which glides silently just metres above dense rainforest to the quaint mountain village of Kuranda. From here you can board the famous Kuranda Rail for the trip back to Cairns over the spectacular Barron Gorge.
See the tour desk at Nimrod Resort. We can book attractions such a Tjapukai, Skyrail and the Kuranda Rail for you.
