Family fun starts here: A guide to Cairns & Great Barrier Reef.

One of the things you never forget growing up is a family holiday, so grab your nearest and dearest and take a trip somewhere that will not only earn you brownie points, but will give you the trip of a lifetime, too.

A holiday in Tropical North Queensland will never not be cool. There’s plenty on offer for everyone. Explore unique landscapes, catch a glimpse of amazing wildlife, or just hang about. Whether you and the gang want to take it easy, or take it next level, there’s so much to do.

Here’s a quick snapshot of what you and the fam can get up to in Tropical North Queensland.

To experience something spectacular: Kuranda Scenic Railway and Skyrail Rainforest Cableway

Put this at the top of your list. Make your way to Kuranda, the village deep in the rainforest of the Wet Tropics via a vintage train. The view from more than 300 metres up is incredible. Combine your ticket with the Skyrail Rainforest Cableway to add even more amazement to your day. And believe it or not, this experience becomes even more spectacular during summer, when the rain arrives and the stunning Barron Falls really come into its own.

To camp it up: Pitch a tent somewhere fabulous

For those who really want to get away from it all, take the family camping at plenty of great locations in the Cairns region.

Take your pick from popular locations such as Lake Tinaroo and Bramston Beach, or really embrace the self-sufficiency lifestyle at remote locations like Russell Island where you can enjoy the serenity of getting completely away from the rat race.

To use up some energy: Cairns Zoom and Wildlife Dome

If the kids are itchy for some action, the rope challenge course at the Cairns Zoom and Wildlife Dome is excellent fun for everyone.

There are also three ziplines to ride on, including one that glides over the enclosure of one of the Dome’s beloved residents, Goliath. Did we mention he’s a saltwater croc?
