The Reef, rainforest and the ruggedness at The Tropical North
With the sun beating down the shores of the Tropical North Queensland as the reef glimmers at a distance, it’s anyone’s guess how busy this part of the country remains with tourists round the year. The balmy weather is just a perk. Soak up the sun, take a dip in the iridescent waters, snorkel, scuba dive or simply saunter around the beach while guzzling down the celebrated Australian beer.

Here are a few famous haunts in the tropical North you need to cross off your list on your Australia tour.

Cairns and Northern Beaches: The gateway to the Great Barrier Reef and the capital of Queensland – Cairns sits between Wet Tropics Rainforest and the marine playground of the Reef. For the Great Barrier adventure, hop on a boat which leaves Cairns daily for the Reef. The city has evolved from a sleepy port town to a thriving urban centre. Spend an evening at the Tanks Art Centre with a gamut of entertainment options, visit the local boutiques for interesting finds or check out the trendy bars for a sip into the fresh, cold brew of the day. The beach bums can head to Northern Beaches just 15 minutes from Cairns.

Daintree Rainforest: It is wilderness at its best. With a limited network expect a digital detox and that long-wished-for disconnect. The perfect intermingling of rainforest and reef – Daintree is among the most complex ecosystems on the planet. The lush carpet in the dark of green is spread across 1,200 sq km between Bloomfield river and Mossman gorge. Considered to be about 180 million years old it is estimated to be older than the Amazon forest. Travel back in time with its jagged, raw appeal as you pass by the boardwalks, paddleboard along the Mossman river or swim in the waters of Emmagen Creek.

Cooktown and Cape York: Located about 330 km north of Cairns, Cooktown the capital of Cape York holds a historical significance in the Australian history – the place being the site of the first interaction between the aborigines and Captain James Cook after whom the coastal town was named. The very tip of Australia - Cape York is the haven for all the self-drive enthusiasts. Hire a 4WD and edge through the rugged terrain. Peppered with national parks, the ever-changing landscape will knock you off your feet. Cool off under the Twin Falls at the Jardine National Park while the bird lovers can catch some interesting species at Lakefield National Park.

The wilderness frontiers and the earliest drylands
The ancient sandstone formations grazing the skies, the striking vast wastelands and deserts which cover 18 percent of the mainland land. The original abode of the indigenous tribes of Australia these sites are the keepers of the whispers of its Aboriginal past and the pre-colonial glory of the country.

Uluru: It is where the magic happens. Get prepared to be left awestruck by the rare phenomenon of the famous rock changing its colours at the scant rays of the sun. The spectacular rock formation called Uluru or Ayers Rock is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and holds the past secrets of the Aboriginal people and is sacred to them. Reach the Red Centre – the arresting dry landscape marked by ancient caves, craggy gorges, grazing ridges, waterholes, springs, and home to Uluru and Kata Tjuta National Park. Relax under the vast stretch of the night sky with the sound of didgeridoo filling up the air.

Great Victoria desert: The largest desert in Australia, it falls in Western Australia and stretches till the south of the country. Dappled by sandhills, pebbled terrain and salt lakes, the area occupies around 3,48,750 sq km of land. The desert is home to some of the indigenous groups such as the Kogara and Pitjantjatjara but most of it remains uninhabited and comes under protected areas such as the Mamungari Conservation Park. The desert also inhabits some of the stunning wildlife like the crest-tailed mulgara, monitor lizards, dingos or skinks.

The Kimberley: The northernmost part of Western Australia, Kimberley is swathed in semi-arid savanna, jagged ranges, stunning gorges, steep ridges and a secluded shoreline. The barren beauty of the land is something to behold punctuated by outback stations, striking canyons, lofty limestone cliffs, freshwater pools with a smattering of crocodiles. Hit the road in a 4WD and set for the adventurous jaunt traversing through the Gibb River Road catching a glimpse of Windjana National Park on the route. As you get closer to the southern end of Kimberely the land gets flatter and drier.
