The Great Barrier Reef
The Great Barrier Reef makes our region the perfect place to host your next conference, meeting or event, with this natural wonder providing so many exciting, relaxing and unforgettable experiences for you and your delegates.
Departing daily on scheduled services or private charters from Cairns and Port Douglas, there are a variety of tours available offering diving, snorkelling, sailing, cruising and island-hopping, all showcasing one of the world’s greatest natural treasures.
Escape to a secluded tropical island in the middle of the Great Barrier Reef and explore a colourful underwater world, dine with the Coral Sea lapping at your toes, or discover varied and unique wildlife with an experienced marine biologist.
The Great Barrier Reef can be seen from space, but for those wanting to stay a little closer to the ground, scenic helicopter tours will leave you with a breathtaking view you will never forget.
For those who prefer to stay dry, semi-submersible and glass-bottom boats provide an ideal introduction to the Great Barrier Reef, while helmet dives and motorised underwater scooters are a fun way to view the colourful coral and marine life without getting your hair wet.
Dive with minke whales for an unforgettable adventure, parasail from an island for an adrenalin rush or spy on baby turtles making their first dash for the freedom of the Coral Sea.
Take the plunge into one of the Seven Wonders of the World and discover why the Great Barrier Reef is the largest, most spectacular coral reef system on Earth.
The Wet Tropics Rainforest
Recognised as the oldest rainforest on the planet and the largest in Australia, the Wet Tropics Rainforest offers endless experiences for any group size. Its spectacular scenery, plant diversity and unique wildlife are guaranteed to leave delegates speechless.
Zip-line through the rainforest, stroll along the deserted palm fringed beach, or get back to basics with a 4 wheel-drive tour through creeks and rugged gorges.
Take a Daintree River cruise with a local guide explaining the evolution of crocodiles in the region and get out of your comfort zone, or stay overnight at one of the boutique lodges in the heart of the rainforest.
Just north of Port Douglas, learn about the traditions of the Kuku Yalanji tribe at the Mossman Gorge and immerse yourself in the ancient secrets of the rainforest.
A gondola ride above the canopy just north of Cairns provides an appreciation of the diversity this ecosystem offers. With stops along the way to explore the rainforest and enjoy guided boardwalk tours, delegates are exposed to the rainforest from above and below.
Visiting the Wet Tropics Rainforest presents an unbeatable outdoor experience in an untouched tropical rainforest, right next to the pristine beaches of the Coral Sea.
