POV: selfies at @kurandakoalagardens 🐨🤳

​One of the top experiences in @australia is to say hi to our furry friends 🐨👋 @kurandavillage is home to many of our tropical wild friends, so where better to go animal-spotting than at one of Kuranda’s many wildlife gardens and sanctuaries like Kuranda Koala Gardens, one of the very few places in the country where you cuddle a Koala for a souvenir photo! 🎥💫

If you're after a palm & relaxing holiday, @visitpalmcove has got you covered 🌴😉

Just a short 30 minute drive north of #Cairns, this tiny beachside village isn’t all about drop & flop 🌴🐚 Explore the town on foot, or choose a bike instead of car & buy fresh seafood for a sunset barbecue on the beach 🏖 You can hire a kayak & paddle right off the beach or take a tour to nearby Double Island 🍹🏝 The Palm Cove jetty is a great fishing spot, with plenty of Spanish mackerel, cod, whiting, stripeys & flathead to be caught 🎣

📸 @stvzie #exploreTNQ #explorecairnsGBR #thisisqueensland #seeaustralia
Discover the stunning #BlencoeFalls in #GirringunNationalPark 🌴 Where #BlencoeCreek plunges & cascades in spectacular fashion to the bottom of a deep gorge 💦🦋 With towering cliffs & rugged ridges, Blencoe Falls is the gateway to the @wettropicsworldheritage  Great Walk 🏃🏻‍♀️ Explore 110km of walking tracks, offering everything from short strolls to full day hikes 🙌🏼🥾

@silkyoakslodge is putting a new spin on ‘feeling green’ 🌴💚

If you like your rainforest wilderness with a side of luxury, this is the place for you! 
Set deep in the rainforest of @portdouglasdaintree, the newly refurbished Silky Oaks really delivers following its multimillion dollar rebuild, with dreamy treehouses & an idyllic onsite spa 🧖‍♀️✨

Don’t forget to take a dip in your very own balcony bath 💦

This isn’t your every day photo of a tropical paradise, but around here, we’re not limited to just reef & rainforest - we’ve got outback tracks too! 🏜

Say hello to Rinyirru (Lakefield) National Park in #CapeYork ✨Open from June to December, this outback paradise is is renowned for its vast river systems & spectacular wetlands 🌴 The park has a rich & diverse landscape, with grasslands, woodlands, wetlands, coastal estuaries, mangroves & mudflats even! You can also find sandstone hills & escarpments on the southern end of the park 😍 It’s also a place of local Aboriginal significance, with sites associated with occupation, ceremonies & stories of ancestral spirits found throughout the park 👣

Here’s to the mums that fill our lives with adventures in the tropics 🌺

How are you celebrating Mother’s Day? ✨🌴

📸 @megannamourr #exploreTNQ #explorecairnsGBR #thisisqueensland #seeaustralia
Here’s a cassowary joke for your morning - Why did the cassowary cross the road? 🤔 To prove he wasn’t a chicken 🐓😝

There’s not many places you can spot the elusive Southern Cassowary as you take a leisurely stroll down the street, but @tropicalnorthqueensland is one of them! 🏝 #EttyBay is one of the most popular spot to see cassowaries in the wild, they’ll often be seen wondering around near the beach 🙌 Did you know that there are approximately 700 plant species endemic to the @wettropicsworldheritage area? And almost 100 species that heavily depend on the cassowary to distribute their seeds 🌴😲

No wonder it’s called the Cassowary Coast 😉

You've heard #CapeYork as a bucket-list 4WD journey, but have you considered heading to The Tip on a motorbike? 🏍This ultimate adventure with @capeyorkmotorcycles is the trip to do if you like to push the boundaries, get the adrenaline pumping & do things a little different 💪 Plus you’ll get some well deserved rest at stunning waterfalls you won’t find anywhere else! 🌴💦

📍 Fruit Bat Falls, Cape York
