Adventure & Extreme Activities

There's so much more to do in Cairns then lazing on the beach whether you want to experience some extreme adventures by air, over sea or through rainforest. Taking off in a small plane, jumping out in a tandem sky dive and floating back down to earth with views of the Great Barrier Reef and brilliant green of the rainforest is a once in a life time experience.

If you're even more game you can take on the all-you-can-bungy experience which has you diving out from the bungy tower and giving you once again beautiful views. The Minjin Jungle Swing is for those of you who are a little less interested in taking a complete leap of faith and will have you flying through rainforest canopies. If this is all still sounding a little too heart stopping then a helicopter ride over the area will calm you down a little.
