Travel in air-conditioned comfort with your local guide; step inside St. Monica's Cathedral where you will marvel at the world's largest themed stained-glass windows. Explore Cairns and delve into the city's history. Immerse yourself in the rich cultural heritage that is the Far North. Visit Cairns Museum at the School of Arts Building, in the heart of the city. You will be greeted by a dedicated guide for an exclusive tour of the museum (free re-entry included, valid for 3 days). Continue to Cairns Flecker Botanic Gardens to discover the unique flora of the tropics. Enjoy a guided walk in the gardens before a delicious Devonshire Tea in beautiful tropical surrounds. After refreshments, your guide will lead you back to the air-conditioned vehicle for an exploration of Cairns' scenic surrounds. The first stop is a scenic city lookout, so have your camera at the ready. Next, visit Lower Barron Gorge National Park and Surprise Creek Falls where there are plenty more photo opportunities. Continue on to Palm Cove, one of Cairns' most picturesque northern beaches. Walk along the jetty or feel the sand between your toes on Palm Cove beach before the tour concludes.
