There’s heaps to see and do in Tropical North Queensland but most visitors have the Great Barrier Reef on the ‘must do’ list.  There are a number of operators who take  visitors out to the reef and you can scuba (accredited or introductory dives), snorkel or even explore without getting wet in semi-submersibles or via underwater viewing platforms.  Quicksilver is one of the most established and respected operators and offers a number of options – here is a link to the Quicksilver website.

Rydges offers a number of accommodation options in TNQ to suit different needs and budgets.  In Cairns there’s Tradewinds Hotel, The Esplanade Resort and Cairns Plaza…

Here is a sneak peek at the reef, thanks to Cairns Dive Adventures.  It is a one minute video taken on a recent dive with Silversonic Scuba Diving Port Douglas to Ribbon Reef.
