Recommended drives that we undertook include: > Captain Cook Highway between Cairns and Port Douglas ("where the rainforest meets the reef") and > Gillies Highway off Bruce Highway from Cairns to Yungaburra and the Atherton Tablelands Both involve very windy roads but the scenery is absolutely worth it.

The stretch from the northern beaches of Cairn for about 20-25km thru Ellis Beach and onwards is a perfect scenic drive. It is Cairns own mini version of the Great Ocean Road. The... More

I however decided to stay a few. National Parks surround Kuranda. On the road up I... More

THe Daintree Rainforest is the most place to visit just to drive through it is breath taking, a great time to visit is during wet season when the water falls cascade across the road. Cant highly reccomend enough a river cruise on the mighty Daintree River right in the heeart of the jungle....
