David Fitchett from Melbourne commented on Ocean Freedom

Just got off the magnificent ocean freedom machine. What a vessel, what wonderfull helpful staff. I had dived before in Tahiti 20 years ago and felt comfortable, but today I could get a grip of it and with as much help and reassurance from the staff I couldn't dive today. No matter at all as the snorkelling is amazing and the barracuda swimming around the back of the boat was truly amazing. There are 4 different places to relax and we used them all at some point during the day. Money very well spent and I would recommend this to anyone at any level of competence.

Deborah Lambert from Brisbane commented on Cairns Experiences

We had a family holiday in Cairns and hired a car through Gem Rent-a-Car. Whilst the car was adequate the customer service displayed by this company was not. The initial quote was for a large car but we were given a medium car without any prior communication and then charged at the large car price. Contacting the owner by phone was difficult as he was always 'on the road with a client' and he requested that emails be sent. Emails were sent as per his direction with no responses for days. I am still awaiting a CORRECT refund! I found this to be a poorly organised company with seemingly little administrative support.

Rebecca Thurston from Melbourne commented on Flames of the Forest

I was treated to a most beautiful evening at Flames under the forest whilst on holidays in Cairns with my boyfriend in January and we absolutely loved it.
The sounds and smells of the forest were just so unbelievably different to anything else we have ever experienced and the food and service was excellent.
He just recently asked me to be his wife and of course I said yes so we will be looking at Flames for our wedding venue next year as a definate.
W3e want to show our family and friends what we discovered not only at flames but also Port Douglas.
If you are going to Cairns make sure you make a booking as they get very bust and do not operate every evening.

My wife and I travelled on this tour and I was so gratful to have a tour in our own language we could understand without having to interpret and understand what was being said. We didn't miss out on anything and saw the beautiful rainforests south of Cairns. Wooroonoonan Safaris have a range of different laguage tours daparting daily. Grazie!!

Amanda S from Wales (UK) commented on Billy Tea Bush Safari's

We visited Chillagoe caves with our kids. This was our first visit to such natural caves and we all immensely enjoyed it. The guide was very informative and told us everything we needed to know about the caves and the surrounding areas. The tour also visited the Mareeba Wetlands and we saw lots of birdlife and even some emus. This was an amazing tour and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone who wants to see the outback west of Cairns.

Kelly M from Hawaii commented on Big Cat Green Island Cruises

My family and I did a full day out at Green Island on the recommendation of the Hilton tour desk. We loved it. The fish and the coral just off the beach and along the jetty are amazing. There are colourful fish everywhere, sea turtles, beautiful coral - just fantastic. On Green Island you can relax on the beach or stroll up for a bite to eat and a cold drink at the restaurants. The island is small enough to walk around. The crew on the Big Cat and the Reef Rocket were friendly and helpful. Overall the boat trip out was lovely and the crew both informative and friendly. Green Island was beautiful and we will be going back

melissa jackson from melbourne commented on Wavedancer

Only 19 kms off the coast of Port Douglas is the stunning Low Isles.
Perfect place for me and the family to learn how to snorkel. We did the glass bottom boat and a marine bioligist guided walk around the Island. It has the highest rate of nesting Sea Turtles in the Great Barrier Reef where we actually got to swim with 6 of them, i also managed to sneak in a nana nap on the beach.

Joan Charleston from Sydney commented on Flames of the Forest

Flames Of The Forest is definatly a must do, They picked my partner and I up from the Hilton and dropped us at the venue, which is ten minutes from Port Douglas.
Tucked away in a secret location you come accross a truely magical and mystical candle lit forest.
I chose to go on the Aborigianal Cultural Experience night, where two local brothers share their cultural background. The didgeridoo is truely mind opening and their stories and culnary journeys are extraordinary.
The seven course banquet with produce grown and sourced locally on the Tablelands was delightful. I am so happy that i chose this experience. Perfect night.

joe masters from L.A commented on Big Cat Green Island Cruises

I found this tour amazing as the Island was so pretty and so much to do there aswell. We started the morning with doing the boardwalk through the forest and seeing the awesome Nautical Museum, where the largest croc in captivity in Australia was. (He was HUGE!!)
I did the semi submarine tour and also snorkeled as the snorkel gear was included.
I went the hole kit and kaboodle and went on a senic helicopter ride, seeing the coral from above is just so mind blowing as you dont realise how big the Great Barrier Reef really is.

I highly recommend this tour, the Daintree was superb. I was so happy to have spotted many crocs on the Daintree River. I enjoyed my swin at Emmagen Creek with the fish.

Manuela Miari from Adelaide commented on Skyrail Rainforest Cableway

Last visited Cairns and the Kuranda Rail/skyrail was in September 2005. It was an awsome experience going through the historic culture and heritage of this beautiful place.

The waterfalls are breathtaking and gives you the oportunity to take a few minutes as the train stops in the heart of the waterfalls so you take photos of the natural beauty.

Previous to the 2005 visit I have also taken the same journey in December of 1992. It is a place that draws you back when you first visit Cairns. I definately recommend tourist visit this place....

Angela Johnson from Adelaide commented on Silver Swift

I wanted to see as much reef as i could in one day so this tour was perfect as the boat goes to 3 different sites. The snorkelling was amazing and I also tried an intro scuba dive. The crew were so much fun.

Mathew Parker from Cairns commented on Jungle Surfing

I didn't find jungle surfing scary at all.. a better word would be exhilarating. Definitely the best way to see the rainforest is being above it. The staff were fantastic and I will go again.

Jeremy Gilbert from Perth commented on Sunlover Reef Cruises

I upgraded with this tour and went in a helicopter to the pontoon and returned by boat. OMG It was so worth it. The views were spectacular, they treated me like V.I.P and it helped with the sea sickness as well. The pontoon itself had loads to do on it, the time just flew by. I did an introductory dive with sun lover also, and found their staff to be very kind and supportive.

Cao Walker from Lakes District commented on

I was looking for a more personalised trip of the rainforest, and I certainly got it. There was only a few of us on the bus and the guide was very friendly. I felt very comfortable asking questions. I was pleasantly surprised with how delicious the lunch was. Traditional Italian food. Yummo. I would give this trip 9/10

Caiitlin Ferguson from Melbourne commented on Billy Tea Bush Safari's

I went on the Chillagoe Caves trip and I have to say the guide was brilliant. It was a really nice change up from the tropical side of Cairns to heading inland and getting to see the outback. The caves are well worth the visit. Thanks again Billy Tea.

I had a really wonderful night out with my boyfriend last week. A big thank you to all the staff at flames of the forest. Especially the chefs the food was superb. I was well and truly full after all those yummy courses. It really was the best anniversary. I would definitely recommend that any one interested in going where warmer clothes than I did though, cairns nights seem to be cooling down lately. Thanks :D

SAM FEWKES from CANADA commented on Skyrail Rainforest Cableway

Only had two days in Cairns and I went to the reef one day and the rainforest the 2nd day. Really glad I chose to do the Skyrail and train. It was a really nice way to explore the forest. It had been raining so Barron Falls was overflowing. Just perfect!

Kaylie Rummery from Western Australia commented on Frankland Islands

Thank to your tour desk team for recommending Frankland islands to me. It really was the sort of island experience I was looking for. I wanted to get away from the crowds and find my own bit of beach and relax. I did some snorkelling and saw some really massive turtles. Such beautiful, magestic creatures. The island itself was quite fun to explore as well, there are some really nice rock pools on the far side of the island. I would really like to come back on day and maybe pay to camp on the other island, that would just be an incredible trip.

Paula Welsh from Canada commented on

My mother-in-law and I had a wonderful day sailing with Synergy. The reef was beautiful and the sun was shining. I chose this boat to avoid the crowds and I relaxed and sun-baked. It was very peaceful.

Fin Masters from Leighton Buzzard, UK commented on Spirit of Freedom

I stayed in an ocean view deluxe cabin for 4 nights in March. The diving was top notch. I couldn't have been more happy with the service and the sites we went to and I really recommend it to anyone. Great Company.

Lucy Wise from Mackay commented on The Australian Skydive Company

Not as scary as I thought it would be. My guide was really nice and supportive, and very convincing. haha. I was nervous in the plane but the actual jump was fine, I felt safe and I got to see the most phenomenal view... just breathtaking. I would recommend to other girls to make sure your hair is well tied back, you don't want it getting in the way off the view. Thanks Heaps Skydive Cairns.

Sara Johnston from United States commented on

Thanks for a great day out. Josephine was the most lovely place, getting to swim surrounded by rainforest. This tour was quite broad in allowing me to see the rainforest, crocodiles and wetlands. The crocodile farm was particularly cool, the crocodiles were a hell of a lot of bigger then our alligators back home.

Kahla Smith from Adelaide commented on Flames of the Forest

My favourite part of this dining experience happened as soon as I arrived there. wherever there is that is - with our destination being top secret. It was that first moment where your walking along this rainforest path and it opens up and you see the most breathtakingly beautiful view lit up with chandeliers. The whole experiences was just wonderful and the food was delicious, I had to remind myself to pace myself with seven courses to look forward to.

Posted on Sunday 29th April 2012

Ryan Mannering from Melbourne commented on Tropical Horizons

I went on two tropical horizon tours in the beginning of May. The first was their Kuranda trip which I enjoyed because of the skyrail and train, but in my opinion I would say that their paronella park journey is better. It was far more of a guided experience. The castle was very impressive and mila mila falls was beautiful.

Posted on Sunday 29th April 2012

Patrick Burke from Ireland commented on

I had a wonderful time on Synergy a few months back. I am finally home from my trip to Australia and I am telling everyone just how good it is. The small numbers and return sailing really perfected the experience. Thank you to the owner in particular.

Kara Marland from Brisbane commented on Frankland Islands

My family loved Frankland islands. It was really good for my two boys the water got gradually deeper so I felt comfortable with them swimming/playing in the shallows. The glass bottom boat and semi-sub were were great giving us a chance to see the reef deeper out where I wouldn't have been able to take the boys. I would definitely recommend booking the all inclusive package because the tours of the island and the water are worth it. It's with a marine biologist, whose really nice and lets the group touch things like starfishs etc. All in all it was a wonderful day. Thanks heaps.

Mel Wright from Ohio, USA commented on Deep Sea Divers Den

I think Danny from California summed it up quite well below. However I also want to add that you will also see a lot of marine life on this trip. I was a little nervous at first with swimming with reef sharks but they make for incredible photos. There was also very large fish that we got to feed. I get sea sick easily and I took travel calm and it was a god sent, I enjoyed my entire day. Thank you Deep sea divers den.

Michael Barnes from Luton, England commented on Frankland Islands

Fantastic Trip! I got to explore three very different eco systems. The first being the chance to see a crocodile natural habitat in the estuary. The second being the tour of the island I particularly enjoyed the tour of the rock pools and getting to see and hold a starfish. and of course the reef itself is so beautiful. I didn't have a lot of time in Cairns and I really feel that this trip gave me a really nice overview of the area. I tried snorkelling for the first time and was very impressed I saw a small turtle and a stingray. I took a gazillion photographs to take back home. Everyone will be very jealous. Frankland islands is just beautiful I would recommend it to anyone. All the best, Barnsy

Peggy Burke from Belfast, Northern Ireland commented on

The boat is luxurious and having a small group really made the difference. I just wanted an easy relaxing day where I could get in and out of the water as I pleased and I certainly got it. I very much enjoyed the sailing experience as well. Thanks

Connie Fry from Cork, Ireland commented on Spirit of Freedom

I had a wonderful time on spirit of freedom exploring the reef. I think that going on an overnight trip for a few days is the way to go. The food was delicious and the diving was brilliant. Thanks so much, I will definitely be telling all the family back home all about it.

John Smith from Melbourne commented on Ocean Freedom

Saturday 11/2/12 What a fantastic experience for me and my mates Mark and Michael, Captain Gordo and staff were most inviting when first arrived, welcomed with fresh danishes and fruit. My mate Mark's introductory drive was an experience he will never forget, Joel settled his nerves and was a great companion. The second free dive for me with Jaz was exciting being able to dive with a turtle and I don't mean the instructor and see some more amazing large local fish, Frenchy the marine biologist had a remarkable knowledge of the coral reef, To all the other staff thanks for an enjoyable and memorable day out.

George Frantiago from Orange County, California commented on Jungle Surfing

Honestly, the best way to do the rainforest. It was very cool being in the canopy. I felt very safe the whole time and my friend who is scared of heights even got up the courage to do this. Nothing like an ice cream at the end of the day to top it all off.

Posted on Saturday 21st January 2012

Celeste Cooper from Brisbane, Australia commented on Tropical Horizons

Paronella Park is just beautiful. There was this particularly nice spot inside where you could sit and feed turtles and take photos of the waterfall. I am really thinking of returning and doing the night tour. I bet it would be stunning to see the castle lit up in the dark.

Thomas Fellows from Toronto commented on Tusa Dive

The staff were very accomodating. My wife and I were only snorkelling and we were worried that we had signed ourselves up for a dive boat, but there seemed to be alot of snorkellers. We were taken to lots of sites where there was both shallow areas for snorkellers and deeper waters for divers. The coral was colourful and there was variety of fish. Thank you for a wonderful experience of the Great Barrier Reef.

I had a fantastic day out on this boat just over a week ago. We went to two great snorkelling spots and I took the guided snorkelling Tour. The crew are very friendly, food was great, and the attention paid to all guests was outstanding.
I would recommend this Tour to anyone looking for either a snorkelling or Diving adventure where you are guaranteed to see the best the Great Barrier Reef has to offer.
Commendations to all the Crew!!

christina james from Cairns commented on Tusa Dive

I was fortunate enough to go out on an agents famil on the new Tusa 6 on sunday with my family and we absolutely loved the new boat. She went thru the water without a bump so we did not have one seasick person at all and the winds were at 10-15-20 knots.
We went to Hastings reef and saw an epelet shark (not sure what it is called but apparently very rare) huge Maori Wrasse and masses of other rather large fish and lots of schools of smaller colourful fish.
I actually learnt more about the Cairns Great Barrier Reef from the cruise director who took us on a snorkel adventure than I have on any other boat so a big thank you to him (sorry forgot your name)
All of the crew were great, the food great the boat extremely comfortable and the reef beautiful. Thank you Phillip, Katrina and all the team at Tusa 6 we loved your boat.

Melanie Fields from Atherton commented on Frankland Islands

I have been to many of the island off of Cairns and Franklands is my favourite. The coral is better and there was far more marine life. The best bit about it, is that there are less people. I must have counted about sixty people the day I went, so my partner and I could go off on our own and find a secluded bit of beach.

We were staying up at Cape Trib for a couple of days and this made for a nice fun little activity during the day. I was impressed by the staff, they were all very friendly and accomodating. All in all a great activity, specially if you have kids.

I got to swim with a Reef Shark. SO COOL. I know its not a great white but I still feel pretty good about it. I spent a couple of nights with these guys in the ocean view deluxe room. The boat was spacious and my room was just perfect and had such a comfy pillow. lol. I just had the most wonderful time and will definately be recommending this trip to everyone and anyone. Winner!

The rainforest is so much more interesting when your dangling from 30 above it. I think what really made this tour though was the Barron Falls they were overflowing the day we went and made for some stunning photos.

Ryan Hughes from QLD commented on Big Cat Green Island Cruises

My kids loved green island. I have a 7, 13 and 14 year old. I wanted a trip that kept them all happy. Being on the island made it easier for me to keep an eye on my youngest in the water. But there was still coral for the older children to go snorkelling and my son even had his first dive. The island literally had everything on it from an ice cream store to an animal park. next time I would definately book a room in the resort.

I can only describe this experience as... INCREDIBLE! I screamed ALOT! But once I got over the initial shock I opened my eyes to have the most phenomenal view. I think next time I will do the full 14,000 ft because the feeling of free falling was definately the best bit.

I will never say never again! I had a bet over a few drinks (too many) that my friends could not convince me to go skydiving whilst on holidays in Cairns.
Well as it goes I did jump out of a perfectly good airplane and I am still tingling every time I think about it.
I loved it not sure I would do it again may have to have a few drinks and think about it LOL

I am proud too say I did everything on the island. I went parasailing, helmet diving, scuba diving, saw the biggest crocodile in captivitiy, went on a helicopter scenic flight, glass bottom boat and semi-sub. But I was lucky enough to spend 3 days in the island resort. AHhhhMAZING! I had an incredible time. But I would like to thank BIG CAT in particular because the staff were just wonderful, they gave me really good tips about what to do on the island. They were incredibly accomodating and one of their staff member in particular even listened to all my adventurous stories on the return journey. Thank you for an excellent holiday, I will be back because of their service.

Heidi Sternberg from Sweden commented on Frankland Islands

I went out on a choppy day and I get easily sea sick. I chose the island specifically because it was such a short distance from the land and it certainly made the difference. we were there so quickly i barely had time to notice I was on a boat. And while swimming the island actually protects snorkelers from the rougher winds. I would recommend this to people like myself who were not born to be sailor's.

I had a fantastic time, everyone was just really nice... they want you to have a good time. Thanks Immy.

Hartleys is pretty awesome.. ive never seen a crocodile before and couldnt believe the size they grow too! I will think twice about swimming in the barron river now. i also liked the fact that you could see other native animals like koala's and snakes etc.. i liked that you get the chance to feed them with a chicken head off a bamboo stick! The boat trip was awesome as you get to see them so up close and out of the water. all the staff there know there stuff!
well worth the visit

The Cairns Holiday Specialists Team were very helpful, including recommending the Tusa/T5 operator to visit the great barrier reef. The staff on the boat were fantastic - my mum has significant mobility issues and they helped her on and off the boat 3 times, plus gave her and my dad personal (as in 2 guest to 1 staff member) snorkel tours. They also got my hubby (who dislikes putting his face in the water) back in the water for the second reef, I could not thank them enough for their help. Skipper even found a whale in between the reefs! That day was by far the highlight of our trip.

christina james from Cairns commented on Billy Tea Bush Safari's

As a local I do not get out in my backyard enough so I decided that I would grab my girlfriend and get of the couch and go trekking to Cape Tribulation with Billy Tea Bush Safaris. It was an early morning start but that was ok as we did not play up the night before and we were met by our driver host for the day who had a very welcoming cheesy grin to meet us. We got to ride in the brand new overland truck in the nice comfy seats that ride up high so you can see everything. Trip to Cape Trib was informative and scenic along the way and the first activity we got into was crocodile spotting. It was our lucky day as we saw a huge male and two females on the river banks. Then it was off into the magical rainforest and boardwalks and beaches. Our host gave us lots of information we would never see or learn about if we went here by ourselves so we were fully informed about the importance of preserving our rainforests and its endangered inhabitants. We went swimming in a crystal clear creek which was freezing and tasted tropical fruits that I have never been game to buy. Great BBQ lunch a play with kangaroos and wallabies and then off for some exotic tropical fruit ice cream on the journey home. We had the best day! Thank you Billy Tea for showing us our beautiful backyard you guys do it so well and your drivers are fabulous. Well done to you!

Turner Turner commented on Passions of Paradise

I went on the Passions of Paradise trip on Sunday 8th May. I am not sure what made me choose Passions of Paradise, but I am so glad I did! It was "awesome" and then some!! While some boats have hundred of passengers on board, the maximum their boat can carry is 85 and we had 74 our day. It feels very personal, friendly and special and if you soon get to know those on board. All the crew were great so it seems a bit mean to select any in particular but take Simon, who led the day - he knew all 74 of our names within a few minutes of us all being on the boat and called us all by name all day, and got them right! He kept checking we were getting what we needed and also did magic tricks on the return journey back from the reef! They are hugely knowledgeable about the Reef and so helpful. I was quite nervous of swimming as I am not a very strong swimmer so Anau, one of the crew, took a few of us on a snorkelling tour with a lifesaving ring, at no extra charge. For an hour he pulled us round the reef, making sure we saw all the best areas and was both patient and charming! What a star. And then, at the second location, Glen took those of us who wanted to out on their glass bottom boat (small extra charge) and was very insightful about what we saw and obliging in helping us see what we wanted like turtles! I can't recommend Passions of Paradise highly enough. When I return I wouldn't go anywhere else! Thank you so much for an amazing and great value day.

kathleen Trott from Schofields, Sydney, NSW commented on Big Cat Green Island Cruises

Missing Cairns already. We went on 3 boat trips with different companys and by far the Big cat to Green Island was the best.
We snorkled and saw heaps of beautiful coloured fish and coral big and small, hubby swam with a turtlle. Glassbottom boat was Excelent for my 10 yr old who was to scared to swim with the fish & she saw nemo and 2 small sharks. We walked around the whole Island, saw lots of jumping fish and my 7 yr old spotted 3 sting rays, it was so exciting.
The best place to SNORKLE BY FAR, we will be doing the trip again when we visit Carins next year and will try all the other activities, especially the submarine.
THANK YOU BIG CAT Reef Cruises you made our holiday. We will be recommending you to everyone.

Mitchell Hughes from Cairns commented on

I live here and know that crocodiles are such secretive little buggers, so it can be a challenge to see them in wild. At hartleys there are crocs galore. Definate highlights are being able to feed them and the river cruise. All the other native wildlife is definately a bonus. Such a great day!

Kate Evans from Bundaburg commented on Frankland Islands

Best trip out to the Reef. I was really nervous about going out on a boat, because I get really bad sea sickness. But the trip out was so calm and short, only like 30 minutes out there. I saw a crocodile in the river as we were leaving. Kool! And the island is so pretty, the water is so clear and there is so much to see. I could live there! thanks to the crew :) such a good day out.

So cool in the early hours of the morning the silence and just the hot air burners. the feeling of weightlessness. Whoo hoo loved it just do it!

Did Skyrail and train today with the family to Kuranda village and just loved it. What a way to see the rainforests gliding across trees in a gondola on skyrail. Whoever thought of this was a genius. Old train was a treat for the kids the waterfalls we cruised past etc. Coming to Cairns you just have to do it. Great day out for the family. Thank you Skyrail and Train

I really enjoyed the introductory dives that tusa offered. They did this thing where we got to slowly go down the rungs of a ladder, getting deeper. They checked all of my equipment for me and made sure I felt very safe all the time. Thanks to the staff for doing all the hard stuff while I got to just swim and see all the cool fish and turtles. :)

Tusa Dive was such an incredible day out. The water was so pristine and there was such good visibilty. They had a photographer on board who took some really great photographs of me in amoungst the coral and clown fish. I did two introductory dives and found my guide really helpful and informative and he certainly put my mind at ease. I swam through a cave and snorkeled above some of the most colourful fish. The food was yummy! and the whole day was of a very high standard. Thank you to the crew for all there help.

I had a very limited time in Cairns so I chose to do Hot Air ballooning in the morning and then go to the reef in the day. I was very impressed with how much energy my guide had considering how early it was, he got me very excited about my first day in Cairns. Definately a once in a life time opportunity, that I want to do twice. :)

Lacey Williams from New York commented on

Best way to see Crocodiles. I had so much fun doing everything from holding a baby croc for a photograph to feeding the crocs myself. I was pleasantly suprised by how many other native australian wildlife were at the farm too. Feeding a cassowary, though a little scary, was definately a big highlight and the koalas are the cutest but laziest creatures i have ever seen. The guides at Hartley's were all very imformative and I particularly liked that I could go feed the kangaroos throughout the day. Not to be missed next time your in Cairns.

Wow you guys have done a great job at Hartley's Crocodile Park in Cairns. We have alligators back home and we saw some of them here but your saltwater Crocodiles are somethiing else. Great boat ride and great jumping crocodiles. I had no idea these creatures could jump like that so no climbing trees over billobongs in Australia kids, they will jump up and grab you.

We booked this trip at a tour desk in Palm Cove where we were staying as it was recommended to us. I have to tell you it was spot on what we were looking for. We had the best day of our holiday. We did another reef trip before this one which we thought was amazing but Passions of Paradise just blew us away. Everything was just amazing from the boat and Staff to the snorkelling and the reef. We would be happy to recommend you to our friends that go to Cairns. Well Done and thank you.

Silver Swift is definately the best boat to go on if you want to do some serious diving. I became a divemaster when I was younger, and had not been out to the reef for a long time. I wanted quality for my final trip out of Cairns and I certainly got that. They took us to see some high quality coral and an abundance of marine life. Thank you to the crew, you certainly made my day.

Frankland Islands is the most awesome way to see the reef. I got to swim with two turtles and watch one come up for air, it was all kinds of incredible.

Night Zoo is a whole new experience to any zoo I have ever been to. It was really nice to see native animals and get so close to them, I had not fed a Kangaroo before and to have it eating out of my hand was just amazing. The BBQ food was the best, I had as good a steak here as I had at many places in Australia. The staff were friendly and very informative and the entertainment made for a very relaxed fun filled evening. The kids loved joining in playing the"Bush instruments" Thank you for a great evening.

I am the first to admit I was caught up in the beauty of Paronella Park. But it was the story behind the castle that fascinated me. It is a true story of what love and lot of hard work can create and is definately well worth the venture into the rainforest. A beautiful site rich in history, and a lovely day out. Now all I need is a man to build me a castle. A definate must to any trip to Cairns.

Aislin Burke from Ireland commented on Ocean Freedom

The tour specialists recommended Ocean Freedom to me, after I enquired about finding a good company who catered for first time divers. I was not disapointed, the day started off on a high with the sun shining upon us. And it kicked started what was to become a fun filled day. We stopped off at two locations one in some beautiful coral surrounding Upolu Cay and the other amidst the phenomenal 'wonder wall'. I really like that my partner and I had a diving instructor to ourselves, it allowed us to ease into our first time diving. I am proud to say I have now dived near a reef shark, touched a turtle and swam over a sting ray. The crew were so helpful and I will be back.

Yesterday I ventured up to Kuranda and was overwhelmed by the sights of the canopy below me as I travelled up by skyrail. My family and I having travelled all the way from England and wanted to balance having something for my husband and I to do as well as entertaining our children. The skyrail provided this merging education with a stunning view, we were all mesmerized. I even was lucky enough to see a turtle from those great heights, splashing around in the Barron River. The staff were so kind, making it a real aussie experience. Definately the best way to see the rainforest.

My Cairns travel review I want to share with you. This was our first trip to Cairns so was not sure on where to go what to see what to do but knew we had to see the Cairns Great Barrier Reef. We were told by other travellers about a sail boat with a really fun crew so considering we were up for some fun we jumped aboard.
And oh Wow what a great day we had on Passions. We were lucky as it had just had a major overhaul to make it shiny and new. The crew were so much fun, the food great after snorkelling in salt water all day and the reef fish and coral just magic.
Thank you Passions and keep up the great work we will return!

Gina Santo from Caulfield Melbourne commented on Hot Air Cairns

So glad to find this Cairns Travel Reviews site so I can tell others to make sure they try Hot Air Ballooning from Cairns. Not only is it cheaper than in Melbourne but the scenery of the countryside is awesome. So funny to look down at the Kangaroos as they scamper away from the balloon above them. Sunrise peace and serenity is the way to describe this balloon trip. The stillness of the morning and and the sanctity of silence apart from the oohs and ahhs from fellow balloon travellers.
We loved it thank you so much Hot Air Cairns we shall return hopefully

OMG I thought I was going to die at first when I was edged out of that plane but then after a few seconds the adrenaline rush kicked in and I was flying literally. I then relaxed a little and took a good look around which was awesome. It does not seem like you are travelling at a great speed it somehow seems unreal and you are in suspended animation wierd but I would love to do it again but the next time I would jump the beach

So much fun! 14,000 feet allows for 60 minutes of freefall that are so exciting that words cannot describe!

Included is a scenic flight over the fringing reef and over the coastal area.

Be sure to purchase the video - it's a memory for life that you will be happy you have to bring home and show all your friends and family the day you defied gravity by throwing yourself out of a perfectly functioning airplane!

Blythe Rallo from Darwin commented on Big Cat Green Island Cruises

Do as much or as little as you like at Green Island. Take the time to relax and enjoy the beach with a cocktail or get involved in guided snorkel tour, scuba diving or the seawalker!

Green Island is simply a 45 minute boat ride from Cairns. Packages range from the simple choice of glass bottom boat or snorkel gear to adding optional extras in such as the semi-submersible, lunch and so much more!

We had a wonderful day out there doing all the activities and had alot of fun.

The cabins were spacious, the meals were fantastic and the crew gave excellent dive briefs to ensure that all divers were comfortable.

The Norman Reef is absolutely stunning during the day time or even at night for the night dive!

This is a great way to spend a holiday and especially with meals, accommodation and dives all included!

There is nothing more peaceful then waking up in the middle of The Great Barrier Reef!

Blythe Rallo from Darwin commented on Silver Swift

Silver Swift Dive and Snorkel was an incredible day. The day began with poor weather conditions... Luckily we were going out on a boat that picked their locations daily based on weather conditions, tides and visibility. The skipper Kev took us to 3 stunning protected outer barrier reef locations with 100% visibility. The crew were friendly in aiding the snorkellers and the dive team were experienced and knew the sites very well. Lunch was catered by the Sebel and was exquisite! The boat was very clean and featured hot water showers and spacious changerooms. Silver Swift is unique in the way that it has a specialised ride control system to ensure the smoothest ride possible which made everyone on board very comfortable. Great Job to the Silver Swift team - we will definitely be back!

Blythe Rallo commented on Billy Tea Bush Safari's

A self drive of the Daintree just did not do it for me... The Daintree and Cape Tribulation tour with Billy Tea Bush Safari's opened my eyes to how much I had missed out on during my self drive and how much more I saw while being guided! Finn, our tour guide, did an excellent job and there was nothing he couldn't answer for us in regards to the Daintree Rainforest. My Bloomfield Track photos are just stunning. We saw crocodiles on our river cruise, tasted tropical fruit, swam in Emmagen Creek and had lunch with the Kangaroos too! I am very glad I chose to travel with Billy Tea Bush Safari's.

Blythe Rallo from Darwin commented on Cairns Night Zoo

A real Aussie experience! Most Australian animals are nocturnal and very full of life at night which makes the Cairns Night Zoo experience the best time to see the animals. From cuddling a baby koala to the campfire with the kangaroos, The Cairns Night Zoo exceeded our expectations.

The crew on Ocean Freedom are great, from the moment we stepped on the boat we were looked after, the reef locations are fantastic.

We had a great day on green island so much to do for couples and families and not far out from cairns. We did green island in the morning before flying out.

Gene Herbohn commented on Silver Swift

Was told they were the best dive boat out of Cairns so decided to do my first ever intro dive with them and all i can say is i was a certified diver a week later. Couldn't fault the boat, crew, gear or food in anway, all were 5 star.

If you are wanting to do diving whether a cert or intro these guys are the best, the locations and the marine life were all brilliant. They have the option of a few differnet reefs so you will get to see the very best the GBR has to offer.

I've done a few different operators now and a still find Silverswift to be the premier company to go diving with out of Cairns. FOr a good day on the reef i can recommend them enough.

My wife and I did the half hour flight with the Champagne breakfast when we were in Cairns and it was one of the most romantic things we did.
Well worth doing
