Don’t Miss These Two Icons On Your Next Road Trip To Cairns

When you go to Hawaii you must absolutely check out some of their iconic beaches like Pipeline and Sunset. When you go to China, the Great Wall is a must see, and when you visit Australia, specifically Cairns, what MUST you see?

Well, when you are in the vicinity of Cairns you must ABSOLUTELY spend some time at the Great Barrier Reef and the Wet Tropics Rainforest.


The Great Barrier Reef – A Motorhome Must See

Just as the name would indicate, the Great Barrier Reef is large and expansive. It is in fact the largest coral reef in the entire world.

It is so large and vast that it can be seen from outer space. This reef is known around the world and if you will be in the Cairns area, then it’s an absolute must for you and your traveling companions to check out.

Snorkeling and scuba diving is also an activity that you may want to participate in if you are able to get some water time in.

Just what might you see when you venture out into the ocean? Well, how about:

A large variety of dolphins, whales and porpoises.
Six types of sea turtles like the green sea turtle and loggerhead sea turtle
Over 1,000 species of fish like the red bass, clown fish and coral trout

There is much to see at the Great Barrier Reef and you could easily spend a few weeks without seeing it all. If you are planning a road trip in your motorhome to Cairns then pencil in some time to spend at the Great Barrier Reef.
