The Perfect Day Trip:

A leisurely hour & a half drive south of Cairns, discover the breathtaking beauty of the region’s rainforest canopy at Mamu Tropical Skywalk.

getting here 002This newly-built attraction features walkways and a cantilever, allowing you to experience the rainforest from the forest floor to the canopy. Once you’re done exploring, climb the tower and soak in the views.

After your workout on the walkways, a pretty drive down the Palmerston Highway lands you at the Mena Creek Hotel. This true country-style pub was built in 1929, and has a reputation for gourmet pub lunches, and the sort of friendly customer service that Far North Queensland is known for.

This property is steeped in history, and was voted the ‘Number 1 Must Do in Queensland’ by the RACQ.
