The Best Walks around Cairns & Far North Queensland

With picturesque national parks and world heritage rainforest at its doorstep, hikes around Cairns offer unmatched ventures amidst stunning terrain. The landscape in Tropical North Queensland consists of both geographical and botanical diversity, spanning from coastal lowlands to towering mountains and encompassing various ecosystems. For the experienced trekkers, The Mount Bartle Frere Cairns hike in Wooroonooran National Park provides an arduous 1622m summit climb with expansive views of the Artherton Tablelands. Alternatively, shorter and informative Dreamtime guided walks can be taken in the Daintree National Park, where the Kuku Yalanji Traditional Owners discuss significant cultural sites along the river valley. Whether searching for a challenge or a leisurely walking track, the Cairns hiking network suits every ambition and ability.
