Far North Queensland
Far North Queensland (FNQ) is a magnet for visitors from all over the world.
It is blessed with TWO World Heritage natural attractions: the Great Barrier Reef and the Wet Tropics tropical rainforests.
The Great Barrier Reef: utterly spectacular!Best known is the Great Barrier Reef – truly one of the natural Wonders of the World. This gigantic inter-connected web of coral reefs extends hundreds of kilometers up the coastline of the Coral Sea. It’s a marine paradise!
The Great Barrier Reef provides unparalleled opportunities for snorkeling and diving. Even visitors who like to stay out of the water enjoy spectacular sight-seeing on reef trips.
The ‘Wet Tropics’ is the other World Heritage attraction of the region.
This is Australia’s largest remaining area of rainforest – home to a unique assembly of wildlife which has more in common with New Guinea than southern Australia..
From Newell Beach, you’re only an hour from Cape Tribulation and the Daintree rainforests.

These forests provide what may be the finest rainforest experience on offer in Australia.
Take time to savour the amazing primary forests with their gigantic ancient trees! See if you can spot a Cassowary, the overlords of these forests, found only in FNQ and Papua New Guinea.
There are more wonderful walks, waterfalls and delightful places on the Atherton Tablelands. Attractively cooler in high summer, the Tablelands are also within easy reach of Newell Beach and Port Douglas.
