This nature tour in Cairns kicks off with a ride on the local bus, as you head for the wondrous Botanical Gardens. You will take the Red Arrow Track and follow it for a 40 minute hike to the top of Mount Whitfield where, no surprise here, you’ll be treated to an amazing Cairns view or two. Drink in the fantastic vistas of Trinity Inlet, the city of Cairns, and its beautiful surrounding natural environment and marina. It’s a pretty breathtaking sight, so don’t forget to take photos.

From here on this Cairns tour, you will head towards the Aboriginal Plants and Gardens area along the Gondawanan Heritage Walk, where you’ll gain knowledge of the variety of medicinal plants used throughout history (and even today) all over Australia. After a good stretch, it’ll be time for some lunch. You will have a picnic lunch planned, with locally caught fish and chips to indulge in. Tuck in and enjoy – you’ve earned it. Full and happy, you will jump back on the bus to go back downtown, where you will visit the iconic Dome for another elevated view of the city. While at the Dome, you’ll have the chance to try some of the optional ZOOm activities and get a photo with a koala, if you fancy. By this point you’ll have seen Cairns from several different vantage points, and tried a couple of Cairns outdoor activities.
