Australia

Description

Although it is relatively new if you compare it with other continents, the basis of Australia’s charm is its wildlife which is considered as its main heritage. This beautiful destination has a tropical climate in most of its territory, even though the seasons happen in the opposite way as in Northern Hemisphere.

It is composed of small islands which have different characteristics each one such as wide bays, coral reefs, mountains, and limestone plains covered with vegetation.

In Australia, you can do a wide range of activities: go shopping to the most exclusive and modern commercial areas, practice extreme sports or go on an expedition. It is a perfect place for adventure-lovers who want to get in touch with nature in places that combine hospitality and innovation.

Cairns

Cairns was founded as a miner city and a port, but nowadays, thanks to tourism, it is one of the fastest growing cities in Australia. Located in the north of Queensland, in the eastern coastal region where the Great Barrier Reef and Cape York Peninsula are, Cairns is the gateway for tourists and diving-lovers who want to submerge in one of the marine wonders of the world.

It is so easy to arrive to Cairns from several Australian cities by plane, and there are even direct flights from Japan by courtesy of the large number of Japanese immigrants who live in the area. All the hotels in Cairos, Port Douglas, Mossman, Daintree and Cooktown offer their guests to pick them up at the airport. However, we recommend you to rent a car so that you can tour the area and watch every natural surrounding spot.

Spots

Botanical Garden. It dates back to 1886 and it is well-known for having more than a hundred palm tree species, and a wide range of forest plants. Cairns Tropical Zoo is the best place you can visit in the city.

Kakadu National Park. Kakadu has abundant wildlife and lots of rivers. The park also has beautiful rocky formations. Aborigines who have lived in this region for more than 40 thousand years, are still present in the area.

Considered as “one of the greatest natural treasures of the Universe”, Australia is the smallest continent in the world with an infinite richness of climates, backgrounds, flora and wildlife.
