About Cairns
Great Barrier Reef

The Great Barrier Reef is one of the world's great natural wonders. It is the largest reef in the world and consists of nearly 3000 individual reefs, 880 islands and hundreds and thousands of different types of plant, bird and marine life. Swimming with the fish and admiring the colours of the coral is a must for any holiday to the Great Barrier Reef. Outer reef scuba diving and island day trips are some of the more common pastimes on the reef along with scenic flights and rainforest tours to Kuranda and the Daintree Rainforest.

Stretching along the Queensland coast for over 3000km, the Great Barrier Reef can be experienced on a holiday to a variety of popular Queensland destinations including Cairns, Cape Tribulation, Port Douglas, Cape York, Cooktown and Palm Cove. Offering an incredibly unique and spectacular natural environment, the Great Barrier Reef is not only a popular holiday destination for Australians but drawn thousands of visitors from all over the world year after year.

Weather

The weather over the Great Barrier Reef varies a fair bit due to the long length of the reef. Stretching over 2500km down the coast of Queensland, the majority of the reef is in tropical and sub-tropical regions. The northern part of the reef is in a tropical climate with hot wet summers with heaps of rain and humidity. The southern end the Great Barrier Reef is sub-tropical with milder summers and far less humidity.

There are also a number of stunning islands located throughout the reef offering fantastic holiday accommodation.
