Cairns in bloom



Spring comes to Cairns in September and you can tell of its arrival by the way the streets of Cairns change into many different beautiful colours. This vibrant yellow tree is called a Paluma Golden Shower, its flowers hanging down like vines.


This outstanding red tree is called Illawrra Flame tree. The Cairns region is full of nature that is constantly changing due to the seasons and there are many places you can discover its beauty. The Great Barrier Reef and also the Cairns Botanical Gardens are definitely spots you can't miss.

If you want to see more of the Cairns region natural wonders, you should consider Hot Air Ballooning in Mareeba. From our balloons, you can see the many different fruit farms and native animals. No balloon ride is similar, with each flight offering a new experience.
