About This Trip

Experience the lush green wilderness of Australia on this short break into the heart of the rainforest. Arrive in Cairns and instantly feel the pace change. A laid back, tropical paradise, where the humidity compels you to just slow down, take it easy and grab yourself some boardshorts and a cocktail. This is a city of good times and excellent hospitality and this is backed up by a vibrant restaurant and bar scene, where you can sample a truly international blend of influences. 

 

Head to the famous Botanic Gardens, home of the best selection of Australian plants and flowers on the planet, or jump on a whale and dolphin boat to catch sight of these glorious champions of the ocean.  

 

After a night in Cairns, the real adventure begins. An early pick up from your hotel in your purpose-built vehicle to journey along the 4-wheel-drive only Bloomfield track, experiencing outstanding views of untouched rainforest, crossing rivers without a bridge and adventuring into areas that most people never get to see. Your jungle adventure leads you to Cooktown, where your overnight allows you to explore the fascinating history of the early adventurers that came to this part of the world. Spend time in the Botanic Gardens and enjoy guided tours of the James Cook Museum and Cooktown Cemetery, before you head down the Mulligan Highway, back to Cairns. 

 

To truly get off the beaten track and explore a hidden part of Australia, this is the tour for you.

highlights

Cairns and the surrounding area is such an exciting area to explore and we really want to do more than scratch the surface in our short break here and give our customers a real feel for the region. Cairns itself is a chilled-out slice of paradise, with a real tropical feel to it. It is a city of extreme friendliness, of wonderful hosts and great gastronomic experiences and we want to make sure that you get to spend time here in luxurious hotel surrounding, but also get to head out, meet the people and enjoy the vibe of Cairns.  

 

To add that element of depth though, we want to make sure that you get an understanding of what it takes to create a paradise in the middle of nowhere and soak up the sheer weight of natural beauty that surrounds Cairns.  By getting you to travel down the exclusive 4WD Bloomfield Track, along a coastal wonderland and then into the phenomenal, lush surroundings of the World-Heritage listed Daintree Rainforest, gives you an overview of some of the most glorious scenery in all of Australia. 

 

Cooktown lets you feel the history, not just of the area, but of the whole country, as you learn about the first meeting between the early visitors and the Aboriginal people. After three nights on this short break, you will feel like you have visited a whole other world.


location

The Oaks Hotel is located right on the promenade in Cairns, a mere ten-minute taxi ride from the airport.
