Family Accommodation Cairns & Coral Sea
Family accommodation Cairns luxury and the Coral Sea make a fine combination. We have all of them in good measure at Wanggulay and we invite you to come and see. We have wonderful drives up and down the coast, and inland through glorious countryside. These are just two of the fabulous things about staying in our luxury family accommodation Cairns is justifiably famous for.
Today we are going to take a leisurely drive along the coastline north of Cairns. We are going to leave our luxury family accommodation, Cairns, our glamorous local waterfront and all the other attractions. We are going exchange them for stunning views of the tranquil Coral Sea during the drive to Port Douglas. This will take just over an hour. That’s the beauty of Wanggulay. We are so centrally located.
Family Accommodation Cairns & The Coral Sea at Your Feet
The hour and a quarter is assuming you drive non-stop, which you won’t, because of all the fabulous coves for swimming. There are also great boutique shops and restaurants in villages with fairy tale names like Kuruanda, Palm Cove, and Craiglie. So do make a point of taking an hour out to appreciate a plate of local seafood. My all-time favourite is beer-battered saltwater barramundi with caper mayonnaise and straw chips, but there is more to choose from.
The Coral Sea is four times as large by square meters as the entire United Kingdom. Accordingly it stretches between New Guinea, the Solomon Islands, New Caledonia, and Queensland as far south as Brisbane. It is thus well on the way to joining Australia’s exclusive club of bio regions. Consequently luxury resorts are springing up all along the Great Barrier Reef. But few boast the luxury of our 5 star family accommodation Cairns just does not get better. Look no further when you want a laid back experience down by our river.
Shall We Stop By and Discover The Great Barrier Reef?
The peaceful waters we pass by on our journey to Port Douglas have been the site of two remarkable events in history. On 11 June, 1768 Captain Cook discovered the Great Barrier Reef, or should we say collided with it. After that he had to carry out repairs for seven weeks near the docks at modern Cooktown. The Battle of the Coral Sea in May 1942 sent 13 ships and 161 aircraft to the bottom of the ocean. Some are in remarkably good condition for perhaps the ultimate scuba experience.
A trip from Port Douglas to dive or snorkel on the amazing Great Barrier Reef is an absolute must-do. Even though Wanggulay will tempt you with the luxurious accommodation Cairns tourists dream of, you must break away. We know the ins and outs of the best reef dives. We can advise on whether the Quicksilver Supersonic fast Catamaran or the more luxurious Quicksilver Poseidon will suit you best. Both offer a great experience. Speak to us for advice. We can help you book ahead to secure your seat for your dive.
