Smithfield Accommodation

Queensland's eastern coast is well known for its access to the Great Barrier Reef, making it a very popular holiday destination. Choosing Smithfield holiday rentals is one way to make a holiday special. Most rentals are private villas or homes with ocean views. Large, private yards and pools make staying safer for children and create less worry for parents.

Why Choose Smithfield?

This small town is within walking distance of the Coral Sea's shores and is less than 20 kilometres from Cairns. The closest reef access is at the Oyster, Vlasoff, Arlington, Upolu, and Green Island reef that lie just offshore.

Great Barrier Reef Tours

There are many companies that offer tours of the Great Barrier Reef depending on customer preferences and budgets. A popular choice is diving at some of the 16 sites along the Milln, Thetford, and Flynn reefs where large Parrot Fish, sharks, and sea turtles are abundant. Crystal clear water makes viewing the diverse marine animals that live along these coral beds easy.

Another tour option starts out in a glass-bottom boat or a vessel that semi-submerged for underwater viewing while cruising to the dive site. After a guided island walk, visitors can enjoy all day snorkeling at an uncrowded site and a reef ecology presentation.

Jungle Surfing

More adventurous travellers will find this experience exhilarating. After strapping on safety gear, guests fly through the rainforest along flying foxes. At times, fliers feel like they are flying through a secluded location where only animals exist. Stopping along any of the five platforms provides photo opportunities and picturesque views.

After dark, guests can enjoy a torch lit walk deep into the rainforest to see the area's nocturnal creatures in their natural setting.

Skyrail and Kuranda Scenic Railway

The Skyrail offers a unique viewpoint of this area's natural beauty. Spanning over 7.5 kilometres through pristine rainforest, the Skyrail's six-passenger gondolas guides guests through the rainforest. At times visitors are fully immersed in the sights, sounds, and smells of the forest. Two stops along the way at Red Peak and Barron Falls allow opportunities to walk through the forest to lookouts with breathtaking, panoramic views.

Billy Tea Safaris

Journeying deep into the wild is the goal of this company. Visitors can take a 4-wheel drive through the bush to the Chillagoe Caves where natural formations formed millions of years ago exist. This limestone labyrinth is easy to get lost in, so take care.

An ATV ride through Daintree forest, to Cape Tribulation, and along the coast of the Coral Sea brings the beauty of this area up close. A naturalist guide leads the tour and provides information along the way.

Make Rentals Your Choice

Choosing holiday rentals for Cairns accommodation makes holiday travel better. Hotel rooms become cramped and claustrophobic when more than two are present. With rentals there are many rooms where guests can get some air. No expensive room service fees appear because rentals have fully equipped kitchens. Privacy and peace aren't compromised by hotel staff or annoying hotel guests. Choosing a rental has many advantages.
