The city is probably most renowned as the gateway to the Great Barrier Reef and this brings tourists and diving enthusiast from around the world. With its marvellous climate and beautiful countryside landscapes, it retains its country town charm and laid back lifestyle despite the size, copious amenities and abundance of activities the city has to offer.
Ideally located on the Great Barrier Reef, here you can take advantage of the gorgeous weather and go diving, snorkelling, swimming or boating amid the rich clusters of coral and warm, azure waters of the ocean. Fishing is also an extremely popular past-time for locals and visitors alike, so why not visit one of the many seasonal fishing haunts in the area and see if you can catch yourself a Coral Trout, a Red Throat Emperor or a Bommie Cod. With 1,200 and 2,000 species of fish, not to mention all the dolphins, sea turtles, dugongs and whales, who all make the Great Barrier Reef their home; you are sure to catch sight of one of these spectacular sea creatures whilst on one of your ocean adventures!
For days spent on dry land, you have just as much to explore due to the diverse mix of outback and rainforest areas, and entertainment facilities. Hiking, walking, camping, cannoning and even jack-or-jill-a-rooing options are available for the adventurous at heart. The city itself has been designed to make the most of its breathtaking scenery, with a long tropical beach and garden strip designed to entice visitors and locals to explore the outdoors and many annual events are held in this area. You can explore the tropical mall, entertainment centre and casino, or treat yourself to a night out at the theatre or one of 15 cinemas in the city. There are also 3 golf courses, a maritime museum, RAAF and military museums and a wildlife sanctuary to keep you thoroughly entertained.
