Spotlight on...Cairns and Port Douglas

Our spotlight series features some of our very own Redcliffe Travel staff's favourite Queensland destinations and why they love to visit them time and time again.

Our Travel Manager Kylie told us her favourite Queensland destination is Cairns/Port Douglas and we can't argue with that!

Where the rainforest meet to reef, you really have it all in Tropical North Queensland! Visit the colourful coral reefs and crystal clear waters of the Great Barrier Reef, the lush, tropical Daintree Rainforest and experience that well known sunshine state weather, what more could you want!

"Tropical North Queensland is one of the most beautiful places in Australia, combine that with world class dining and you have the perfect holiday destination!" says Kylie, and we would have to agree!

We asked her to put together a highlight list for us to share with you and she's done just that!


Here are some of Kylie's must see and do's when in Cairns and Port Douglas.

  • Kuranda Railway and Skyrail Cable Car
  • Kuranda town is nice to walk around (very boho)
  • Go have lunch at Palm Cove
  • Mossman Gorge is up the road and very scenic
  • Cape Tribulation
  • Reef Cruise with lunch (there are several options)
  • Sunset cruise
  • Hartley’s Crocodile farm (if you are keen)
  • Rainforest Dining Experience
  • Cairns waterfront with lunch at the Shangri-La

Does this not inspire you to make the journey up north?!

We couldn’t be happier with Redcliffe Travel. Their wonderful agent, Tammy, recently booked our flights to Zimbabwe. Her attention to detail was fantastic! Her communication was outstanding, keeping us updated and even checking in after our return to ensure our travel went smoothly. We highly recommend Tammy and the team at Redcliffe Travel.

The Australia part of our trip has sadly finished. In a word, it has been amazing! We owe a lot to our travel agent Tammy Aitchison, who asked the right questions, gave us insightful guidance when planning this trip and basically ironed out the wrinkles we would have undoubtedly experienced had it not been for her assistance. You will discover that her professionalism and attention to detail is world class and her customer service is second to none.

We had a terrific family holiday arranged by Redcliffe Cruise Travel and we wouldn't hesitate to have them assisting us with our next trip. Because we like you guys! Because you are a local company. Because we like having an agent behind us in the event things go wrong on the journey.

As popular as do-it-yourself travel is and as savvy as we are with all things online, there are some aspects of travel that are much better dealt with through a travel agency and someone who really knows what they are doing. Tammy and Redcliffe Cruise and Travel are so knowledgeable and experienced in dealing with those aspects of travel that are challenging. Its good to work through someone who knows what they are doing and who take as much interest in you having a great holiday as you do!!

The service provided is always helpful and comprehensive. The booking documentation is always delivered on time to allow checking and to make changes if necessary.

I have used Tammy at Redcliffe Cruise and Travel twice now to book our family holidays. We have found her to be very professional and efficient. She has also been very obliging when I have had to ask questions regarding our holiday. We will definitely be using her in the future.
