5 Star Couples Retreat Cairns Holiday Tips

Our Favourite Places to Spend a Day

Living and working in Cairns, we all have our favourite places to escape to for the day. We love living in this tropical wonderland, and with so many places to visit up here, we thought we’d outline some of our favourite places to spend the day.


The Skyrail is an absolute must do when it comes to visiting Cairns – in fact, a visit to Cairns isn’t complete without a ride on the Skyrail. A great day out for the whole family, you’ll get to experience our lovely rainforests from a completely different perspective. The Skyrail provides for some great photo opportunities and is something you won’t forget.

If a trip on the Skyrail is on your to-do list while visiting us here at Wanggulay, why not drop your bags in early, and head on the Skyrail while we get the property ready for you.

Behana Gorge Waterfalls

A 45 minute hike up the mountain of Behana Gorge Road will see you arriving at the spectacular Behana Gorge waterfalls. This place is truly magical and we all love escaping here, whether it be on a hot summer day or just to get away from it all.

Behana Gorge is a great place for some wildlife spotting – we spot goannas quite often on our regular walks up the gorge. This is a great spot to make a day of – do the 45 minute hike up the mountain, take a swim in the cool refreshing waters at any of the swimming holes and sit down for lunch with your feet dangling in the water.

Of course, the walk back down is much easier but as long as you have a moderate fitness level, you can’t beat this local wonder.

Wildlife Dome

When you are visiting Cairns with a young family, you really can’t go past a day at the Wildlife Dome. With over 400 animals to spot, you and your children will love a day out. The Dome has a large range of animals including birds, reptiles and frogs and you can expect to see some animals you normally wouldn’t get a glimpse of.

There’s also a whole range of shows to keep the kids entertained, and like many of our other young guests, they’ll come back here to Wanggulay asking their parents when they can visit the Dome again.

Island Cruises

There are so many island cruises departing from Cairns that it is hard to choose just one that all of us here at Wanggulay love. Fitzroy Island and Green Island are popular choices amongst many of our Wanggulay guests, and we hear so many of them talking about booking another trip when they come up next.

The islands are an amazing part of living in Cairns, and whether you just stay on the boat or get out there for a dive or snorkel, you’ll love the amazing colours and scenery that the northern Barrier Reef islands have to offer.

For more hints and tips on places that we love to visit, just ask us. We love sharing our region and we’ll be sure to recommend something suitable for your entire travel group.
