The Great Barrier Reef
Many tourists have no idea that one of the lovely sights they take in near our Cairns City Apartments can also be enjoyed from outer space. The Great Barrier Reef is the largest structure made by living organisms in the world, and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer has actually taken many photographs of this World Heritage Site from space. Some of the images can be viewed here.
While many astronauts have marveled at the colonies of blue green coral near our Accommodation Cairns, nothing bests experiencing the vibrant marine life of the Great Barrier Reef up close. Composed of 2900 reefs and stretching over 2600 kilometres, this Australian icon is not merely home to many sea creatures; it is also the perfect setting for a pleasure-filled beach holiday. Our Cairns holiday apartments give you access to the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park and a number of awesome beach activities.
The Great Barrier Reef is the best place in world to learn how to dive of snorkel. A few minutes drive from our Cairns luxury apartments are calm, shallow spots that are bedecked with corals and rich in fish life, including coral trouts, anemone fishes, and even bottle nose dolphins. Certified divers can meanwhile reach deeper dive sights with boats or luxury corals. You can also ride a raft or kayak through the world’s oldest rainforests on the reef’s rivers.
If you wish to experience an out of the ordinary Great Barrier Reef Adventure that’s close to what astronauts come across, we recommend taking in the panoramic views of the Great Barrier from the Cairns Bungy Tower. Many guests in our serviced apartments Cairns have raved endlessly about this 50 metre high plummet. Other tourists meanwhile prefer to explore the Great Barrier Reef from the less exciting, but very romantic hot air balloon ride from Cairns to Port Douglas. Lifting off at dawn, the balloon ride is the perfect moment to cuddle your date or take pleasure in a long breathtaking kiss.
