About Half Day Tours For Cairns

Get the most out of your weekend or short break in Cairns.  

If you are short on time but want to do as many activities as possible we can work out an itinerary so that you get the most out of your experience.   All we need is your arrival and departure details and a list of the activities you would like to participate in and we will make it work for you. 

Cruise ship visitors are generally just here for the day and there are many options available for you too whether you decide to do a scenic heli trip, a rainforest tour or an Outer Barrier Reef cruise.

Most visitors will have at least 2 x nights in Cairns which will give one full day of activity and at least one half day.   A three night stay can broaden the range of tours you can experience in Cairns.  Try to stay for at least 4 nights so that you allow for a bit of relax time too... 

With so many half day options on offer the itineries are endless.  It is possible to combine an early morning Hot Air Ballooning experience with an Outer Barrier Reef pontoon trip followed by a themed dinner at one of the local attractions such as Tjapukai. 

An ATV or horse riding experience with a white water rafting trip or an Island visit followed by the Skyrail and Train Kuranda experience.  

Or, you can head out to the Outer Barrier Reef on an 11 am jet boat and be back in Cairns by 4 pm. 

Just because you have limited time does not mean you need to miss out...  We can definitely find a fun activity for you.
