Activities in Cairns and the Cairns region

Kookas Bed & Breakfast is located in Cairns, your gateway to the magnificent wonders of Tropical North Queensland; the Great Barrier Reef, World Heritage Rainforest and great Australian Outback.

Here you’ll revel in the relaxed lifestyle that makes Cairns one of the most desired travel destinations in Australia. With a year-round summer you’re assured that even the winter months are perfect for enjoying the great outdoors.

At Kookas Bed & Breakfast you’re never far from the excitement. The Esplanade re-development has made the Cairns foreshore the shrine of the city-centre with an award-winning swimming lagoon, user-friendly Reef Fleet Terminal, and bustling boardwalk and shopping district.

Numerous Cairns attractions have also received worldwide recognition, including Skyrail, the world’s longest rainforest cableway and the Tjapukai Aboriginal Cultural Park. But remember there’s still another 998 day tours that operate from Cairns every single day!

While there’s so much to discover during the day, Cairns also takes on a whole new look at night. And this is the beauty of Cairns; the eclectic mix of cafes and restaurants, the hub for reef and rainforest adventures, and the infrastructure of internationally recognised English colleges.

If you’ve ever dreamt of experiencing the good life, it doesn’t get any better than this.

Golf

Golf is as popular in North Queensland as it is elsewhere around the world. The climate and lushness of the courses is an added bonus in North Queensland. Golf courses are plentiful and considered to be of a very high standard.

Most cities and regional centres have a public course where visitors are welcome. A round of golf in these clubs can be anywhere from $15 – $30 (plus club hire) depending on the facilities available.

Private golf courses are generally more expensive, but not always. Exclusive courses such as those found in the Sheraton Mirage in Port Douglas charge about $100 per round.

Most visiting golfers can comfortably find a course to suit their needs and budget and the golf shops will gladly find a few other players to form a team.

Birds and animals are abundant at all North Queensland Golf Courses, with most being home to animals like kangaroos, cockatoos, kookaburras, sea eagles, herons, egrets, goannas, pythons and even
the occasional crocodile. Considering the wildlife a round of golf can
at times be more like a safari.

Golfing supplies are readily available throughout North Queensland.
