Adrenalin and adventure

Known as the adventure capital, Tropical North Queensland offers extreme adventures and activities that will give you sweaty palms and shaking knees.

Things to do

Join a live shark feed on a dive expedition, or swim with the minke whales in the most remote parts of the Great Barrier Reef.

Explore spectacular gorges, ancient lava tubes and the history of Australian pioneers. And be sure to experience the live snake feeding extravaganza during wet season.

Skydive over the Great Barrier Reef or hang-glide over the Daintree Rainforest and Port Douglas. Rather stick to the ground? Take yourself on a self-drive journey and discover serene waterfalls, towering trees and crater lakes.

Channel your inner Bear Grylls white water rafting down the gushing Barron and Tully rivers or pack up the 4WD to take an expedition through the untouched wilderness of Cape York.

Trek and wind down world-class mountain bike trails and get your wheels dirty or jungle surf through the Daintree Rainforest.

Master the BMX Bungy Jump or hop on a quad bike and adventure through the mangrove wetlands and native bushland.
