  • Take a day-trip from Cairns to Mission Beach, and on the way stop for breakfast at the legendary Babinda Bakery ready to welcome hungry guests on their journeys. Once you’re at Mission Beach, take a dip in the swimming hole at Josephine Falls, or trail through the picturesque 750m rainforest walk. On the way home, spend the afternoon exploring the Babinda Boulders scattered across Babinda Creek.

  • For those based in Brisbane, a quick play around with Google Maps will reveal that the countryside is within less than 100-kms reach including Lamington National Park. For an area so deliciously named, we hate to let you down – there are no actual lamingtons here. Instead, you’ll find a rainforest worthy of World Heritage-listed status. This is Gondwana country, folks. In the Binna Burra section of the park, the walks range from short 30-minute circuits, right through to 8-hour treks – catering to bushwalkers who are as green to hiking as the landscape here.
