Cairns (pronounced ‘cans’) is the gateway for Far North Queensland and the Great Barrier Reef. You can expect to come across crocs, delicious seafood, the most perfect palm trees, natural waterfalls and tropical islands whilst adventuring up here and one thing you won’t be short of, is instagrammable pics. And backpackers. Everywhere.
(Not that life is about the gram, but it’s always nice to get a few good shots)
I was lucky enough to live there for a few years so have experienced the best of FNQ. So here’s my top spots to get the gram shot.
Heads up – most of these photos are pics of me from my CurvySam Insta taken with my iphone. I will include some other peoples highly filtered shots probs taken with a fancy camera. But at least I’m going to tell you EXACTLY where to go.
Thala Beach Nature Reserve
Port Douglas – Rex Smeal Park
Millaa Millaa Falls
Davies Creek Falls
Windin Falls & Infinity Pool
