Interesting Facts About Cairns

Nestled on the coast of Far North Queensland, the city is tucked between the Great Barrier Reef in the Coral Sea and the lush rolling downs of the Atherton Tableland to the west.The region includes Queensland’s tallest mountain, Mr Bartle Frere, and two World Heritage-listed attractions – the Great Barrier Reef and Wet Tropics rainforests

Camping is a great way to experience North Queensland's many National Parks. It is important to be prepared and to make certain that you have good equipment and plenty of supplies.

Most of the time these camping facilities are located in the best spots and with the best facilities anyway.

Pack your Motorhome / RV or Campervan and holiday in this beautiful and captivating place.
