If you can bear to leave the beach for an afternoon you will find many other activities. Take a ride in a hot air balloon, play a round of golf or – if you want to do something a bit more adventurous – go skydiving. Take a train tour through Cairns or spend the evening at a casino, trying your luck or watching as others try to beat the dealer.
