Things to see and do with a car rental in Cairns

Things to see and do with a car rental in Cairns

Cairns offers an array of relaxing activities and gorgeous scenery both in town and throughout the northern Queensland region.

In town, the esplanade and lagoon are popular spots – especially on a hot and sunny Cairns day. The botanic gardens offer a lush city escape, and Muddy’s Playground is a must if you have kids in tow. You can even book a ride on the Kuranda Scenic Railway for a stunning trip that passes by waterfalls and incredible rainforest landscapes.

The Great Barrier Reef

The Great Barrier Reef

Of course, the coastline offers its own collection of attractions. The Great Barrier Reef is always worth a visit, whether you fly over it on a scenic flight, travel across the waves by boat, or dip beneath the water with a snorkel and flippers. Or, make your way along the coast to enjoy beaches, small towns (like Palm Cove & Port Douglas) and incredible scenery at every turn. 

Note that you are not permitted to drive your SIXT rental to Cooktown via the coast road, although you can take the inland route.
