Cairns Kids Attractions

An outdoor lover''s paradise, Cairns has so much to offer those travelling with kids. With plenty of crocodiles, koalas and other native animals to meet, as well as fabulous parks and reserves, parents will have no problem keeping the little ones entertained. Be sure to pack plenty of sunscreen and kit the kids out with sun hats as the sun in Cairns can be blazingly hot and young skin can burn very easily. Can''t stand the heat? Take the kids to the Esplanade to cool off in the lagoon during the summer months, and make a day of it by enjoying a picnic or barbecue while you''re there. Take the kids on a ride on the skyrail to view the rainforest and village of Kuranda, or check out the red pandas at the Cairns Tropical Zoo. The Wildlife Dome at the Reef Hotel Casino is the perfect place to view Australia''s most infamous inhabitant, the salt water Crocodile. A must is a day trip to the nearby Paronella Park to enjoy the castle ruins surrounded by rainforest gardens right beside a stunning waterfall, and the kids can even enjoy feeding the turtles and fish, while Hartley''s Creek, a working crocodile farm where kids can enjoy the ''Crocodile Attack Show'' and view other animals including cassowaries, dingoes, snakes, koalas and lizards. With all these options and so many more, Cairns is the perfect holiday destination for families travelling with their kids in tow.
