Business Events Cairns & Great Barrier Reef
Cairns Activities and Programs
Groups will be spoilt for choice with the activities in and around Cairns, with the Great Barrier Reef and World Heritage–listed rainforest at the city’s doorstep.
Cairns and its surrounding regions offer a myriad of experiences, from learning to throw a boomerang with an Aboriginal guide to getting up close to a koala and spotting crocodiles on a private tour. There are also many islands to explore within the Great Barrier Reef via chartered sailboats, where groups can swim with tropical fish and explore the coral.
Adventures in the city
Take an unforgettable leap
For the ultimate team building activity, add the Skypark Cairns by AJ Hackett to your business event itenary. Groups will get their hearts pumping as they climb up 50 metres (164 feet) before bungy jumping off the platform toward the lagoon below.
Spend a day at Hartley’s Crocodile Adventures where groups can get up close to crocodiles, as well as snakes, koalas, tropical birds, wallabies and reptiles. Take a boat cruise on Hartley’s Lagoon to see the crocodiles in their natural habitat or learn about the wildlife with an entertaining presentation.
Zipline through a wildlife sanctuary
Offering team-building programs, Cairns Zoom and Wildlife Dome is the perfect spot to experience some thrills in a unique location. Located in a glass dome inside a wildlife sanctuary, the course features a zipline and an adventurous high ropes course.
Explore further afield
Explore the tropical rainforest
The World Heritage-listed Daintree Rainforest is full of natural wonders. Treat your team to the sights and sounds of the rainforest while zip-lining through the tree canopy, or get a bird’s-eye view of the region from a helicopter or hot air balloon.
Trek the Ngadiku Dreamtime Walk
Just over an hour from Cairns, take your group on a journey through the Mossman Gorge on the Ngadiku Dreamtime Walk led by an Indigenous guide. Learn about the spiritual and cultural connection the local Kuku Yalanji people have to the land.
Experience the Great Barrier Reef
The Great Barrier Reef’s spectacular array of coral, tropical fish, turtles and rays are nothing short of unforgettable. Explore the beauty of the reef via a chartered sailboat where groups can swim with tropical fish and explore the colourful coral.
