Family & Kids Activities

Fun for all

If you’re looking for the ultimate family holiday, Tropical North Queensland should be at the top of your list. From the hundreds of golden beaches fronting onto the calm waters of the Coral Sea to the lush green rainforests and national parks, there’s always something to do outdoors. You can explore from a kayak, canoe or paddleboard, race around on mountain bikes or hike up to secret lookouts.

Splash around in the Cairns Esplanade Lagoon, go waterfall chasing in the Atherton Tablelands, spot cassowaries at the Djiru National Park and feed a big reptile at Hartley’s Crocodile Adventures.

There’s a large selection of resorts with great facilities for families, like huge swimming pools, playgrounds and special kids’ menus. If your family needs more space, self-contained apartments are a great option or you can check in to one of the excellent caravan parks in the region, many of which have pools and even waterslides.
