South and north of Cairns is a region of ancient rainforest, remote islands and a coastline that fronts part of the world’s most spectacular reef. The national parks here form part of the World Heritage Wet Tropics and offer extensive opportunities for camping, fishing, walking and wildlife-watching, four-wheel-drive enthusiasts flock to the rugged and spectacular Cape Tribulation, and visitors wanting to get in touch with the rainforest lifestyle head to Kuranda. The gateway to all of these attractions is Cairns - the first stop in the Far North for tourists from around the world.
