The sights of Tropical North Queensland will have you reaching deep into your vocabulary and color spectrum. How else to describe the verdant nature of the humid rainforests, the shifting sands of the beaches, the sunburnt lands of the savannah and the technicolor underwater world? Green, gold, red and blue just don’t seem to be enough to describe the myriad wonders of the Tropical North.
Stretching from Cairns to the Torres Strait Islands, Tropical North Queensland encompasses islands of culture, pristine beaches, the ochre outback, colorful reefs and dewy rainforests. World-famous destinations such as the ancient Daintree Rainforest and Great Barrier Reef await. A 4WD journey across Cape York Peninsula is an once-in-a-lifetime trip into indigenous Australia and camping under a starry sky certainly life affirming.
But it’s not just the sights that will seduce you. It’s the clink of a glass filled with local fruit wine. Savoring creamy cheese and the heady aroma of coffee on the Atherton Tablelands. And the echo of the elusive cassowary and more tropical bird calls than you could ever identify. Sit still enough and a magnificent Hercules butterfly may just alight on your shoulder. Such is life in Tropical North Queensland.
