Being in the tropics the west season - November to May - tends to be the quieter time of year.

Cooling off with some Cairns attractions in summer

The fierce heat of summer months in Far North Queensland scare a lot of travellers away from Cairns. What many people don’t realise is there are plenty of Cairns attractions where you can spend your days cooling off. Some of the best Cairns attractions are inland waterfalls and lakes where you can go swimming. Pick up your hire car from Cairns Airport this summer and visit one of these Cairns attractions.
Lake Eacham
Volcanic activity formed the gorgeous Lake Eacham, which is popular among locals. It’s a clear, blue lake in the middle of a cool rainforest. Take the 3.5km walk  more...

A visit to Mossman Gorge – Daintree Rainforest

SITTING on the edge of the World Heritage listed Daintree Rainforest, Mossman Gorge is part of the world’s oldest rainforest tracing its origins back over 130 million years and home to an extraordinary diversity of flora and fauna.
If you are visiting Far North Queensland take time out to spend a half-a-day visiting Mossman Gorge. Located just over an hour’s drive north of Cairns and 20 minutes from Port Douglas, Mossman Gorge is easy to reach with sealed roads and plenty of parking available at the Gorge Centre. DriveNow can help with car hire in Cairns and there are also  more...

Great driving holidays – Cairns to Cape York (Qld)

CAPE York is absolutely totally out of this world. No word can sum it up, no matter how much you try to describe it. Quite simply, you just don’t know how great it is until you experience it for yourself.
I bid farewell to Sheree and the kids (they are having a week in Cairns) while myself and the film crew head into the unknown territory of Cape York Peninsula. Firstly, there’s a few very important things to remember. If you are travelling along, as in only one vehicle, make sure you stick to the Cape York Development Road at  more...

Great driving holidays – Cairns to Mossman (Qld)

WHO ever would have thought that a place like Mossman was only a 90-minute drive north of Cairns.
Tucked away in the beautiful hinterland and on the base of the Daintree. Mossman hides one of the most spectacular and entertaining places that is simply unforgettable – The Karnak Playhouse, owned by world famous Diane Cilento! It is so enchanting, I could have stayed there forever. They do world class stage performances and when you throw the setting into the equation, it’s really something out of a story book.
After leaving the Playhouse, we took in the Mossman Gorge. Once again,  more...

Great driving holidays – Ayr to Cairns (Qld)

BIDDING farewell to Ayr, we headed off for a leisurely four hour drive north to Cairns and I couldn’t wait! The Great Barrier Reef, the shopping, the Kuranda Railway, the Skyrail … so much to do.
We stayed at the Coconut Holiday Resort and this was a five star park in the truest sense. This is an ideal place to set up camp after a long drive in Queensland in your campervan or caravan. With everything from unpowered grassy sites right through to three bedroom condos, two enormous pool areas, the best children’s play activities you could think of and  more...

Great driving holidays – Mackay to Ayr (Qld)

We decided to deviate from our intinerary, something we have become very good at! Although sometimes it is not planned at the time.
So after Mackay, we decided to stop in Ayr, a great little town 80km south of Townsville. It’s a good old country town, buzzing with busy farmers and tonnes of produce. There is still enough sugar cane to sink a battleship, but two things Ayr has that not a lot of these small country towns have are, one, it is right on the beach, and two, it has an enormous water supply in the Burdekin River and  more...

Away with the Family out of School Holidays periods

My family and I recently went to Port Douglas to relax before the mayhem of the festive season.  Taking kids out of school for a family holiday is a hot topic at the moment.  But as our eldest child was in Prep this year we thought a week away (armed with her writing journal and a few reader books), would actually enhance her education.
Now most people think that Far North Queensland is not the place to be in late spring, but let me tell you – the weather was perfect, we had the place to ourselves and we enjoyed  more...

Driving Holidays – Cairns (Qld)

The old adage “it’s a big country” certainly rings true in Far North Queensland, where distances between sights are great and the only way to experience them is by road. But that’s what makes the region north of Cairns such a great place for a driving holiday, with the open highway a journey of discovery and wonder.
When you’re deciding on a vehicle, keep in mind that the further from the Big Smoke you get, the rougher the roads – you may require a four-wheel drive if you are venturing north of the Daintree or up into Cape York.
