With its creamy white exterior and unique glass-domed rooftop, the Pullman Reef Hotel Casino is one of Queensland’s most iconic hotels. Benefitting from a super-central location in downtown Cairns, with sweeping views of the ocean and marina, this five-star resort offers world class gaming, dining and lodging. The 128 guestrooms and suites are decorated in honey and chocolate tones, with private balconies and floor-to-ceiling views of the city, the pool or the serene Trinity Inlet. Try your luck at the blackjack table or at one of the 500 electronic gaming stations, then refuel at one of three restaurants. Tamarind, a wood-paneled dining room with plantation-style shutters, serves award-winning Asian fusion fare. After dinner check out the three bars on offer. There are live bands at Vertigo Bar, movie screenings at Casino Sports Arena and late night guest DJs at Velvet Underground, the resort’s own nightclub. Don’t leave without visiting the Cairns Wildlife Dome on the roof: Turtles, pythons and crocodiles are all on display at this spectacular all-weather exhibit.
In the Area
Cairn’s greatest draw is without a doubt the Great Barrier Reef. Some of the world’s best diving sites are here, of course, but for non-divers, glass-bottomed boats or semi-submarines also let you visit the dazzling marine life. Adventure sports are popular too: skydiving, bungee jumping and whitewater rafting, to name but a few. For a more tranquil experience, head north to Daintree Rainforest, the oldest surviving rain forest in the world. Arrange a daytime or nocturnal nature tour for a chance to see the flora and fauna up close.
