Romantic Things to Do in Cairns and the Tropical North

Romantic Things to Do in Cairns and the Tropical North

Whether you’re planning a romantic proposal, enjoying a couples getaway, or simply wanting to spend some quality time with your loved one, the magnificent scenery of Queensland’s north provides an idyllic backdrop. Here are some ideas for romantic things to do in Cairns and the Tropical North. 

Watch the Sunrise from the Sky

The patchwork farmlands, winding rivers, and tropical forests of the Atherton Tablelands are even more stunning from above. An early morning hot-air-balloon flight is the most romantic way to take in the views, floating over the countryside as the sunrise casts a golden glow over the landscapes below. 

Book a Private Tour for Two

From cruising the Great Barrier Reef to exploring the Wet Tropics rain forest or strolling along the beach at Cape Tribulation, there are plenty of options for day trips from Cairns. Opting for a private tour means you and your sweetie can travel at your own pace, spend longer at the places you enjoy most, and ask your guide for personalized recommendations to customize the trip for just the two of you.  

Enjoy a VIP Dinner Date

Turn up the romance by flying your loved one out to a remote island in the Great Barrier Reef on a private helicopter, then enjoy a gourmet picnic lunch and sip champagne as you gaze out across the ocean. Foodie couples could head into the Hinterlands around Cairns for a private food-tasting tour or even enjoy breakfast with the koalas at Hartley’s Crocodile Adventures.

Spend a Night at Sea

Choose an overnight tour of the Great Barrier Reef and spend the night together on a pontoon amid the UNESCO World Heritage Site coral reefs and islands. Alternatively, set sail along the Trinity Inlet on a sunset cruise, and snuggle up to admire Cairns’ illuminations from the water as you sail back to the city at night.
