Join us for your dream Cairns tour, one that's chill, fun and all about nature. We'll show you all the best things to do in the tropical oasis of the Atherton Tablelands, from taking a dip beneath some of Cairns most epic waterfalls to exploring the mystic curtain of roots set by half a century old tree. If you are lucky enough, you may be able to spot some of Australia's endemic wildlife in the Daintree Rainforest like the famous Cassowaries. Just a day trip from Cairns, you'll feel a world away. Meet new friends, discover Australia's unique landscape and chow down on a box of Tim Tams at the end of it all. Let's go.
