You will be staying in a spacious home in suburbia with true Aussies. There are 2 X parks nearby & a walkway that meanders throughout the suburb. There is a local grocery store with fuel & some light takeaway options (not many of them are vegan). The heart of the excitement lies with the Cairns region & beautiful surrounds.
Cairns is a tourist town & is built to display our many beautiful attractions that mother nature has given us. The city has many varied restaurants with a few dedicated to vegan/vegitarian cuisine - it's a growing movement.... Notable attractions: * Skyrail Rainforest Cableway - sail above the Barron Gorge National Park. Travel for 7.5 kilometers in a cable car across the world heritage park * Kuranda Scenic Railway - unique rail journey that will take you from Cairns to the local village of Kuranda with a few stops along the way * Palm Cove - stunning beaches & an esplanade of eateries (will need to request vegan options or call ahead) * Gateway to the Daintree Rainforest - 3 hours north of us choose from zipline, overnight, scenic day or rainforest tours * Great Barrier Reef - swim, snorkel or scuba & witness nature at it's best - wild & free (while it still lasts) To list but a few!
Public transport is available, however we do recommend a car to truly enjoy all that the region has to offer. You could base yourself from our home & buzz of to all the attractions. For the budget conscious & environmental warriors there is a bus within walking distance (5 mins) that will take you into the city.
