Change things up with these side-trips from Cairns: Kuranda (Honey House, Our Animals Our Earth, & more), Port Douglas (Horses in Port, Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas, & more) and Yungaburra (Cathedral Fig Tree, The Afghanistan Avenue of Honour, & more).

The adventure continues: steep yourself in history at Historic Village Herberton, experience rural life at Hartley's Crocodile Adventures, identify plant and animal life at Granite Gorge Nature Park, and enjoy the sand and surf at Trinity Beach.
