Because Australian wildlife is adorable, unique and fun for all ages, one should not miss an opportunity to get immersed in sanctuaries and wildlife parks while traveling in Australia. The Cairns Wildlife Dome, located above the Reef Hotel Casino in central Cairns, offers visitors the chance to learn more about the Aussie environment, in any weather condition – and you don’t have to take a day trip to do it. Explore an enclosed rainforest ecosystem, chock full of lorikeets, parrots and cockatoos that roam freely next to you. Or, learn about the large reptile population that includes pythons, lizards and a giant crocodile known as Goliath.

This is a bit of a obvious when out in stunning Cairns, but you must, must, must take at least one day-trip to the Great Barrier Reef! Here you can engage in snorkeling or just lay out on the white sandy beaches and catch a tan in the balmy tropical climate. Luckily, there are more than a handful of tour groups to show you around and even take you scuba diving in the Reef without even as little as a license. Once you’ve taken an introductory diving course and want seconds, there are intermediate and certified diving options (both day and night) that will give you the chance to fully explore this great reef.
