                  About Cairns Activities

                  Cairns has earned its reputation as Australia's "Adventure Capital" for a reason; the region offers a number of geographical spots that are conducive to outdoor exploration, extreme sports and other physical activities that make it an outstanding destination for those who enjoy getting truly involved with their experiences. As a result, the diversity of activities on offer in this part of Tropical North Queensland is staggering - adventures on water, land, and in the air are all available for those looking for things to do with that little extra "spice".

                  On the water, the likes of jet boating, jet skiing, whitewater rafting and more are all immensely popular around Cairns, both on the ocean and in its several surrounding rivers. In the air, scenic flights by both light aeroplane and helicopter allow travellers to take in the spectacles of the amazing Great Barrier Reef, the rainforest, and other regional highlights from high above - or, via hot air balloon, explore it in a serene and romantic fashion.

                  True adrenaline junkies can opt for a skydive or bungy jump, while those wanting to keep their feet safely on land can hop aboard a 4-wheel ATV bike or a more conventional means of transport on the humble horse to take in the natural surrounds from an alternative angle. We highlight some of the most popular Cairns activities below.

                  Experience the Best of Cairns Water Sports

                  Cairns wouldn't be nearly as popular as it is today without its aquatic offerings, with the major spectacular drawcard of the Great Barrier Reef augmented by a number of other nearby waterways that offer alternative experiences as well. Cruising to the reef is the obvious highlight, however, jet boat rides in the waters surrounding Cairns are also highly popular for those wanting to get a combined dose of scenery and thrills; rides take guests on a trip through the city's Trinity Inlet for a panorama that blends together mountain and water.

                  Further inland, the trio of the Barron, Russell and Tully Rivers make for some of Australia's best overall whitewater rafting venues, with courses that rank from grades of beginner through to upper-intermediate. The Barron and Tully are both doable in a half-day or full-day tour from Cairns, with the Tully potentially offering some more challenging thrills in its fastest sections.

                  Add in the likes of snorkelling, kayaking and other marine activities, and Cairns delivers for those who love to get wet.

                  Ride Through the Cairns Wet Tropics

                  Sticking to dry land doesn't make exploring the Cairns region any less exciting; the Daintree Rainforest, in particular, makes for an expansive destination in its own right with plenty of opportunities for witnessing its multi-faceted ecosystem from ground level. Given the rainforest's terrain, extra balance is required and comes courtesy of ATV/Quad Bike vehicles, which offer a fun and sometimes challenging way to explore the lush rainforest and its muddy beds and other natural obstacles.

                  Responsive and high-speed capable, they're a favourited method of transport in the region. Those opting to keep things a little more natural can instead climb on horseback and embark on a number of horse riding experiences that wind their way around a blended mix of both rainforest and farm environments. Slower paced options are also available for those with kids or who are inexperienced riders, too, and when coupled with the lovely natural surrounds make for a very "organic" way of experiencing Cairns' floral and faunal highlights.

                  Experience Adrenaline Pumping Activities

                  Those looking to kick their activity-based experiences in the Cairns region up another notch won't be disappointed, as it's home to a number of potentially pants-wetting opportunities for a rush. First and foremost, Cairns serves as Australia's original home of bungee jumping (or bungy jumping, if you prefer) courtesy of AJ Hackett which has a dedicated bungee tower amongst the rainforest. Measuring 50 metres high, those brave enough can choose from one of 16 different jump styles and embrace the ultimate plunge as gravity takes effect. Not extreme enough?

                  Then climb aboard a perfectly good aircraft and ascend to heights of 14,000 feet before jumping out above some truly gorgeous reef scenery with a skydiving experience. Cairns makes for an excellent skydiving destination due to its landscape, and with 60 seconds of free-fall, you'll be able to get an extended rush before the canopy opens and you can leisurely take it all in. Add in some extreme rafting experiences on the Tully River and more, and you've got Australia's top haven for thrillseekers.

                  Witness Serene Views With Scenic Activities

                  If you're after the ultimate panorama of what Cairns' geography is all about, then there's no better way to soak it all in than from high above the ground. One of the more exclusive and high-end ways to explore Cairns and witness the sheer scale and beautiful colours of the Great Barrier Reef, scenic flights offer a vantage point that makes for some unforgettable, jaw-dropping views. Scenic helicopter flights are perhaps the most popular of these aerial activities, with the pilot's ability to hover over individual highlights and drop-down surprisingly close to the surface granting an amazing look at the region's marine life, rainforest and more.

                  Scenic plane flights, meanwhile, can cover more ground and provide a broader overview of the region in a shorter amount of time, with light aircraft carrying passengers over the likes of the reef and rainforest in a single itinerary. Lastly, those who don't mind an early rise and are after a tranquil and romantic experience can opt for a hot air balloon ride, floating over expansive mountain ranges and wide-ranging Cairns regional scenery.
