Australia - Great Barrier Reef

Private Custom Journeys in Cairns and Queensland – Great Barrier Reef & Daintree Rainforest

Queensland is the large territory encompassing northwest Australia. The warm, coastal city of Cairns is a jumping off place for exploring the Great Barrier Reef, fabulous Daintree Rainforest, and other notable destinations.

You are there—

  • Lizard Island: As a friend of Off the Beaten Path, take advantage of the rare chance to visit Lizard Island Research Station, an internationally recognized facility focused on protecting coral reef systems.
  • Great Barrier Reef: Immerse yourself in the brilliant underwater world of the planet’s largest coral reef, with 400 kinds of coral, 1,500 species of fish, and 4,000 types of mollusk.
  • Daintree Rainforest: Hike Mossman Gorge and explore the incredible Daintree Rainforest—the oldest and arguably most diverse rainforest in the world, where the very evolution of Australia’s plant life is recorded.
