Cairns Discovery Tours, Cairns City, Queensland

40 Aplin Street,
Cairns City,

Every visitor to Cairns should allow an afternoon to enjoy the half-day discovery tour called City Sights Plus! So much more than a sightseeing tour, it is the only Cairns City tour with an amazing guided walk in the Flecker Botanic Gardens and a first class afternoon tea/coffee at the Best Deli in Edge Hill! A very highly recommended, informative, entertaining, five and half hour experience. Easy short walks, regular stops, a photographers dream. Recommended by Lonely Planet Guide.
