The Area: Cairns, QLD

Cairns is a vibrant, cosmopolitan city nestled between the sea life of the Great Barrier Reef and the rolling downs of the Atherton Tablelands. As the gateway to the wet tropics, the city buzzes with a lively mix of travellers, from backpackers to luxury-seekers keen to soak up the sun. As night falls, the wide streets come alive with bars, galleries and seafood restaurants enticing diners by the waterside.

Snorkel, dive or simply recline on a glass-bottomed boat to admire the breathtaking wonders of the Great Barrier Reef. Take a luxurious day trip to Port Douglas, an hour’s drive north, to dine on succulent seafood and shop in fashion boutiques. Walk among the towering ancient trees and lush greenery of the World Heritage Daintree rainforest, keeping an eye out for brilliantly-coloured butterflies and rare tropical birds; or marvel at enormous prehistoric reptiles in one of the region’s crocodile parks.

Closer to home, take a stroll down the Esplanade to find countless dining options and interesting shops. By night the same stretch comes alive with the Night Markets, where clothes, trinkets and Australian keepsakes are all up for grabs. Spend days simply soaking up the tropical sun on the beach, splashing about in the water when the heat gets too much.

We had an amazing time with Down Under Cruise and Dive. There are a few decks you can sit or sunbathe on, the boat is spacious and clean and the staff are so friendly, knowledgeable and take good care of the passengers aboard. The photographer takes beautiful photos while you're there, she knows how to tempt the big fish and have them pose with you in the photos underwater. Also, the lunch that was served was delicious and healthy. Would recommend anyone of any swimming ability to enjoy the great barrier reef with Down Under Cruise and Dive.

Beautiful, large, spacious, modern boat with clean amenities. Breakfast, buffet lunch and tea time were included and they were of good value. Staff were very organised, professional, well informed, friendly and helpful. They put the safety of the passengers 1st..i felt very safe and comfortable travelling with them. They brought us to 2 beautiful locations for snorkelling and diving; Norman and Hasting Reefs. Highlight of my day was seeing the black tip reef shark at Norman Reef! It was a wonderful trip. Definitely will travel with them again. Keep up the good work! Service: Group tours
