It is also home to Wet Tropics of Queensland (a World Heritage Site) and Atherton Tableland, which allow visitors to experience stunning rainforests. The nearby Skyrail Rainforest Cableway, Crystal Cascades, and Kuranda Scenic Railway are wonderful ways to appreciate the region’s natural beauty. Other must-visit attractions in the city include Cairns Esplanade, Cairns Botanic Gardens, Cairns Aquarium, and Cairns Central Mall.
