The Cairns region has not one, but two, rainforests and shows you just why we should be doing more to protect our beautiful environment. Kuranda, which is close to Cairns and easily accessible, is gorgeous and the first rainforest shown in photos. The Daintree rainforest, a world heritage site that gives you serious jurasic vibes is a little further and can be added on as an extra couple of days instead of a day trip. The town, itself, is on mudflats so no picturesque beaches await you, but is absolutely surrounded by beaches. Oh, and the great barrier reef. Need I say more?

Walk through a boardwalk in the rainforest and arrive at paradise. There are many close beaches to Cairns, but if you’re already in the Daintree area, this beauty is magnificent.
