Are you an experienced hiker in healthy physical condition. If so, then you may enjoy the four-to-six-hour round trip up and down the 922-metre-high Walshs Pyramid. If not, then we have many other creative suggestions for things to do while visiting North Queensland. And about staying in our luxury 5 Star Cairns Accommodation because we really are the best. In which case, we invite you to put your feet up and enjoy a virtual tour.
We should mention that the mountain vegetation is quite dense. And also that the exposed rocks are slippery after rain. Nonetheless, this does not deter participants to the annual Pyramid Race. Since then, hundreds of hopefuls have gathered every second Saturday in August to beat the best. The first to make it to the top wins $1,000. Once up there, their reward also includes magnificent 360-degree views. Please reserve our 5 Star Cairns Accommodation well ahead if you are planning to join in the fun. Because we do book out quite rapidly at this time. Would you like to make a booking now.

More Exciting Places in the Great Outdoors Near Cairns
There is so much to see in our wonderful part of the world. Take Daintree Forest for example with flowers that bloomed during the Jurassic era. Kuranda has its state forests for hiking, biking, trailing, and horse riding. Not to mention the Barron River and its spectacular thundering waterfall in rain season. But wait until we tell you about Mount Whitfield Conservation Park. Just five kilometers from the Cairns – and our 5 Star Cairns Accommodation Wanggulay – is a perfect place for hiking, bird watching, and spotting butterflies.
Mount Whitfield is quite unique, and a special place to visit being almost perfectly preserved within easy reach of city buses. Once there you may only walk through the entrance and explore the conservation park on foot. So alas, no mobility scooter, or wheelchair access yet, but we hope they are working hard to sort it. There are two, connected walks to follow ascending the Whitfield Range in fairly gentle gradients. Once at the summit the determined walker receives panoramic views of our city, and the gorgeous coastal environment in which we live. Discover more here.
Our gorgeous luxury, Bali style villas open up to the surrounding rain forest. With bedrooms opening out through french doors to a generous entertainers deck. The ‘cathedral-size’ entertainment area has high, wood panel ceilings and luxury furniture and fittings. We have Wi-Fi, Television, Netflix, and so much more. When you stay in Wanggulay, gorgeous coloured butterflies and birds seem so close you could almost touch them. Isn’t it time you gave us a try? Isn’t it time to come home to Wanggulay on holiday.
