Located on the far north Queensland coast, Cairns is one of the state’s largest tourist centres. The city is situated close to the Great Barrier Reef, the Atherton Tableland, Cape York and the gulf country. Between September and December the town becomes focus for the annual black marlin season, attracting fishermen from around the world. The offshore reefs and islands include Lizard Island, rich in wildlife and an excellent fishing ground, and Green Island, a coral cay with an underwater observatory. Onshore attractions include Reef World, which is a giant aquarium of fish, turtles and other marine life; the botanic gardens, which have more than two hundreds species of palms and over ten thousand varieties of plants; the Big Boomerang, which displays Aboriginal and Pacific Island artefacts; crystal-clear streams, sparking waterfalls, lush tropical rainforest and mysterious lake craters.
The Great Barrier Reef is the world’s most extensive coral reef, extending for some 2000 kilometres along the Queensland coastline. On the sheltered side of the reef there are numerous tropical islands, most of them being the peaks of submerged mountains. Many others are simply coral cays rising only a few metres above the sea. The islands are unspoilt, have fringing coral reefs, and are classified in many instances as national parks. Getting around this great region is best on our 4x4 campervan hire.
Discover Northern Queensland on a 4x4
North Queensland is diverse region, offering tropical islands, reefs, rainforests, mountains and wide open plains. Attractions may include the Reef Casino and many islands surrounded by reef. Cairns is also a major point of departure for the Great Barrier Reef, an attractive tropical city surrounded by splendid tourist attractions. To the north are the secluded beaches of the Marlin Coast and Port Douglas. The Great Barrier Reef is one of the world’s most remarkable regions. It is a vast collection of underwater shoals, reefs and coral cays extending from the tip of Cape York Peninsula in the north to Gladstone in the south. The Capricornia section incorporates the Whitsunday-Cumberland Islands, which attract thousands of visitors each year. This has been one of the most 4wd campervan holidayed destinations in years.
Although weather conditions vary from one region to another, its abundant sunshine makes the State ideal for touring in a campervan. The diverse and spectacular landscape varies from a rich, narrow coastal plain to a vast dry inland plain. The two regions are separated by rugged and erratic sprawl of the Great Dividing Range. The state can be divided into five distinct regions – Darling Downs, the Central Coast, Northern Queensland and the Great Barrier Reef coast.
