Tropical North

Stay: Relaxed Queensland resorts, self-contained apartments and holiday houses are the go in Tropical North Queensland. But with so much holiday accommodation to choose from, where do you start?

That's where I can help. As a mum, I know the sorts of features I look for when choosing my own family holiday accommodation in Queensland. So I've done the research to find a range of properties with amenities that appeal to families.

If you have decided to travel this far north for your family holiday, why not stay at more than one place? This will give you a better opportunity to explore more of what this stunning Australian holiday destination (see map here) has to offer?

Visit: A must is a trip out to the reef, with a variety options suiting all ages (consider Low Isles if your have younger children). Also check out Hartley's Crocodile Adventures, Cape Tribulation, Kuranda Train and Skyrail and Paronella Park for just a taste of what is on offer.

Tours: Check out some of the great family friendly tours on offer in Cairns and Port Douglas, including a range of reef trips and great land-based options too.
