3 Epic Adrenaline Activities For Your Stay In Cairns

19 August 2015

Cairns is an awesome base in Australia, especially during the winter months where other cities down the coast get chillier….Cairns will be packed full of sunshine and good weather!

And although Cairns is famous for being the gateway to the Great Barrier Reef and is the perfect spot to complete you PADI Open Water Dive Course there is also another side to Cairns - one packed full of energy and adrenaline!

Here’s 3 of our favourite Cairns activities to get your heart racing…


Yup is doesn't get more adrenaline fuelled than a skydive hey?! Jump out of a perfectly good plane and enjoy up to 60 seconds of free fall and some incredible views along the coastline and out towards the reef.
If you opt for one of the photo of video packages we guarantee you’ll have a new Facebook profile picture by the end of the day ;)

It’ll be something you never forget! Check out our Skydiving in Cairns!

White Water Rafting

If you’d rather be a bit closer to the ground the paddle down the white water rapids of the Tully River will be an awesome decision!
Tackle bubbling rapids, waterfalls and rock jumps as you negotiate your way down the river - be prepared for thrills, spills and probably some screams!

…just be prepared to get wet! See our Cairns White Water Rafting.

Bungy Jumping

Probably the scariest option on our list - because in bungy jumping you’re the one who has to take the leap!
Situated in the jungle the you’ll be in great hands with the AJ Hackett team as they actually invented the sport!

With the option to have your head dunked into the water at the end of your free fall and a whole menu of crazy ways to bungy - including riding a bike off the platform - you can opt to jump once or spend the whole day throwing yourself off the purpose built bungy tower! Book your Cairns Bungy with us!

"I booked a day tour to the Great Barrier Reef with Travel Freedom, and I honestly can't believe how amazing it was! I was snorkelling with Nemo, next to turtles, and I went diving for the first time! I never thought I would see the reef, and it was so cheap to do so! Thanks to Travel Freedom for their service, which was fast, helpful, and easy!"

"I went to see the Daintree rainforest for a day with Travel Freedom and it was beautiful. It was a very relaxing day and I saw a crocodile. I recommend this tour to anyone with some time in Cairns."
