Cairns Half Day Tours

Whether you are staying in Cairns, Palm Cove or Port Douglas you now have the option of selecting a half day tour or a full day tour to the Great Barrier Reef, the Daintree Rainforest, or Kuranda as the tour operators provide coach transfers from your hotel or resort holiday accommodation, otherwise if you have a rent a car you may self drive to meet the tour company.

If you are short of time or just want to lay by the pool for the morning or afternoon and do a short half day tour then there are several tour options available to you.

Take a look here at our brand new half day outer Great Barrier Reef tour from Cairns. Already this reef trip is proving very popular with guests who do not wish to be on the reef for a full day tour.

If you are a Professional Conference Organiser with a conference or incentive group coming to Cairns and you are looking for some local advice and assistance in arranging some half day group tours then contact the Conferences Incentives and Accommodation Specialists in Cairns and will gladly work with you and provide the best half day tours and attractions at the very best group rates in Cairns and Port Douglas.
