A-Z of GREAT Events: 26 reasons to choose Cairns & Great Barrier Reef!
A is for adventure, like white water rafting on the raging Barron River or tubing through tranquil rainforest streams for up to 200 delegates with Cairns Adventure Group. Adventure is the new team building with Destination Cairns Marketing with plenty of choice for tours and activities to keep everyone connecting.
B is for boomerangs that come back around (or not!) when you learn how to throw at Rainforestation Nature Park in Kuranda! Small and large groups can learn this age-old skill during a visit to the park.
C is for cruising the tropical coastal waters with a wine in hand aboard Spirit of Cairns for your Welcome Function or weaving the scenic Great Barrier Reef Drive that you can see with the help of Pioneer Travel Services on your way to your post-conference activity.
D is for discovery of the rugged northern land with Adventure North Australia and the colourful coral sea with Great Adventures Reef & Island Cruises. Your conference activity day has never looked so swell!
E is for exhibition spaces that draw in the crowds at the award-winning Cairns Convention Centre, supported by NQ Exhibitions’ world-class service and sustainable eco-boothing that looks after your event and the environment.
F is for fresh food prepared by hand by talented chefs from Tropic Spirit Catering for all your tasty event or tour needs. Or delicious seafood served beside towering fish tanks at Dundee’s at the Aquarium (not from the tanks though, we swear!).
G is for guided tours and transfers with a personal twist, escorted by friendly local experts from Down Under Tours that can take you wherever you’d like to go, catering to all size groups, great and small.
H is for historic venues that tell a story and provide the perfect backdrop for stunning events, like the city’s original shipping shed turned into Hemingway’s Brewery Cairns Wharf‘s magnificent waterfront craft brewery or the renewed 1920’s banking centre transformed into The Chambers‘ selection of perfect intimate function spaces for stylish gatherings.
I is for island conferences and barefoot functions in the coral sand in the middle of the Great Barrier Reef at Fitzroy Island Resort for up to 120 delegates, or mix up your meeting day at Green Island Resort with onsite boardroom and reef activities nestled on the only rainforest inhabited sand cay.
