Where The Rainforest Meets The Sea

Winter is the best time to explore the tropics of Australia and with many resorts, eateries and boutiques opening up again post-lockdown, it’s even more enticing for me to jump in my car and head north to my favourite playground.

From one tropical town to the next, I’m revisiting my favourite places on the Great Barrier Reef - the seaside havens of Cairns and Port Douglas - for some sunshine, shopping and a sneaky cocktail or two!

As the international arrival point for visitors from all around the world to the tropical north - and eternally green and lush thanks to high rainfall - Cairns is a sparkling fusion of culture and glorious geography.

Where are Cairns and Port Douglas?

The exotic, international hub of Cairns is on the eastern coast of the Cape York Peninsula in Far North Queensland, Australia.
