Such a special way to celebrate great friendships or important occasions. Make sure to book ahead as you will not not want to miss Nu Nu.
Spend a day experiencing the world’s oldest tropical rainforest on the Skyrail Rainforest Cableway (just outside of nearby Cairns) to gain a truly unique perspective, metres above the jungle canopy, of Australia’s Wet Tropics World Heritage Area. Followed by a visit to the Kuranda Village to explore their famous markets, wander around the galleries and stop for lunch at one of the many cafes on offer. Visit the Australian Butterfly Sanctuary, the largest butterfly light aviary and exhibit in the southern hemisphere, before taking the rainforest train back down to the valley in the afternoon. Another fantastic day out is a drive to Daintree with a stop at Myall Beach (just before Cape Tribulation) along the way to discover this stunning and picturesque spot – ideal for a beach walk. While you are here a Daintree River Cruise is a must. An iconic experience through one of the most densely populated mangrove estuaries in the world, teeming with a vast range of wildlife, birds and crocodiles. Not forgetting the World Heritage-Listed Great Barrier Reef is on your doorstep with a myriad of options to explore this natural wonder from glass-bottomed boat tours, snorkelling, scuba diving (both with beginner options) or a scenic helicopter flight, all with a side of ‘pinch-me experience’. Perhaps a day (or three!) of pampering sounds good from one of the many exclusive and luxury day spas, all nearby, offering the ultimate in health and wellness with rejuvenating treatments and therapies.
Markets, markets, markets! They are a Tropical North Queensland institution full of incredible local food and produce, Aboriginal artefacts, original handmade crafts and unique entertainment. Try the Kuranda Markets open every day, the Port Douglas Markets are held each Sunday in Market Park, the Palm Cove Markets are on the first Sunday of every month (except September), The Mossman Markets are held every Saturday morning under the shade of towering raintrees, Cairns is home to Cairns Esplanade Markets, Cairns Night Markets and Rusty’s Markets, with many more markets in the region that simply must be a part of your time here.
Time with friends is precious, why not celebrate it in affordable, boutique luxury, in an ideal tropical location year-round and somewhere you can relax, explore and have fun, all together.
