It is one of the most complex ecosystems on Earth and you should not miss it for the world! Cairns is a laidback and unpretentious place. After the remote tropical delights of the Polynesian islands, you will be ready to explore the restaurants, bars, clubs and coffee shops. There is a lot of agriculture in place beyond the city, with sugarcane, bananas, coffee and tea being the main crops. It is also home to progressive wine makers, who are stepping away from the traditional Shiraz and Chardonnays to create the world’s first tropical fruit wines. There are lots of wineries a short drive from the city, which make for a great day out.
