What to do in Cairns and Tropical North Queensland

What should you do after you choose an Apollo camper rental in Cairns?

Cairns is the best place to start exploring Australia’s northern tropical paradise. The weather and the people are warm in Cairns and you’ll love the outdoor lifestyle just like the locals do. The air, sun and palm trees kick off the holiday vibe the moment you arrive! 

Cairns city has an Arts Centre, Esplanade Lagoon, botanic gardens and some of the freshest local prawns and seafood you’ll find. You could even take the skyrail rainforest cableway from Cairns to nearby Kuranda. 

Cairns is also a great place to explore if you love waterfalls – there are 20 waterfalls near Cairns! Hiring a campervan in Cairns is truly a great way to see the area. You'll quickly realise why people choose campervan holidays in Tropical North Queensland!

Ready to travel a little outside of Cairns? Take a day trip to the islands where you can snorkel or dive amongst the reef, or kayak between isolated beaches. It’s just an hour from the mainland!

Head back to land for a hike through the Daintree Rainforest where you’ll find a diverse range of plants and animals including saltwater crocodiles. The Daintree Rainforest is one of Australia’s most beautiful tropical rainforests. 

There are 11 distinct regions in TNQ including the lush rainforest of the Atherton Tablelands, resort town Port Douglas, glamorous beach village Palm Cove, mountainous Kuranda and Cape York (the very tip of Australia!).

When you’ve explored the best of Cairns, journey down the East Coast of Queensland or head west towards the Northern Territory.

Your campervan hire in Cairns can take you along some incredible routes! There are four main routes into TNQ (the Great Inland Way, Pacific Coast Way, Matilda Way and Savannah Way) and numerous drives within the region to help you explore waterfalls, swimming holes, beaches, museums, and even castles.

The Savannah Way is a popular 3,700 kilometre journey that takes you across Queensland, the Northern Territory and Western Australia. From the comfort of your Cairns campervan hire vehicle, you’ll take in fishing villages, fossicking sites, birdwatching spots, and find plenty of places to stop for a cold drink.
