Things To Do

Tropical North Queensland

Cairns and Far North Queensland is a fantastic place to visit. It’s the only place on earth where two natural world heritage listed wonders – the Great Barrier Reef and Wet Tropics Rainforests – exist side by side.

It’s home to many award-winning tourist attractions and enjoys a tropical climate year-round. Lilybank is perfectly positioned as a base to explore all this stunning region has to offer. We are most pleased to offer a tour booking service for our guests, free of charge. For your convenience, we have a tour desk / stand at Lilybank, featuring brochures of all sorts of tours from around the region.

Our tour booking service is provided free of charge and you will pay the same price with us, as you would by booking direct with the operator, we even include complimentary transfers in our rate.

Stratford, home to Lilybank, is a 10 minute drive from Cairns city and the Cairns Beaches.

This means it offers guests convenient proximity to the Reef Fleet Terminal, where most Great Barrier Reef day tours depart from, and Barron Gorge National Park, home to the award winning Skyrail Rainforest Cableway (see below) and Kuranda Scenic Railway.

We’re proud to call Cairns home and know you will enjoy exploring the many attractions of this great region during your stay.
