Retreat to the cool Cairns rainforest
There are places where trails fade away through cool misty rainforest. They lead through lush undergrowth and soaring canopies.
Glimpses of wildlife and all manner of birds can be seen and heard through the trees, echoing loudly over the faint but constant buzz of life. Hidden waterfalls and dramatic lookouts await those who tread these paths.
