Tropical Cairns Pictures Taken By Owen Wilson

Cairns is a tropical paradise, with it’s many attractions to cater to all likes. These attractions encompass the city of Cairns, ranging from water activities like snorkelling on the reef. You can take any number of boats out on day trips to explore the reef by snorkelling or diving or just for a boat trip out to the Barrier Reef. The outer Reef is particularly beautiful.

Marlin Marina is the main departure site for these activities. This image was taken on a still night with the Shangri la hotel prominently featured. There a plenty of vantage points for photographers to take incredible shots any time of the day or night. I love Cairns it’s one of my favourite spots to visit.

Millaa Millaa falls is one of my choice spots to photograph, here I was fortunate enough to capture the Ulysses butterfly in my shot, they frequent this location. They are a large butterfly and vivid in colour. The Falls no longer look quite this picturesque as they have been opened up for tourist buses, and swimming is now permitted in the falls. A lot of the foliage no longer exists, and a viewing platform has been added.

A great swimming spot right in the heart of Cairns is the Esplanade lagoon, clean water and large enough to have your own space. This is a central meeting place for many visitors. It presents itself in many a photograph and is very vast in it’s appearance. For instance, at twilight it has a uniquely crimson to purple glow and when there is a spectacular sunset it will have a wonderful warm glow. There a numerous apartment and hotels to accommodate the visitors of Cairns. From the air you see a totally new aspect of the lagoon as seen here in the image below.

The difference of the water colour is remarkable. As there are no sand beaches the water and its banks are muddy. Most people think the beaches are this lovely blue with pristine sands but it’s not so. Further to the north you will find such beaches.

Tully River white water rafting is a popular attraction, riding the rapids and travelling the river in Tully Gorge. Raging Thunder white water Rafting is the go when looking for excitement of the nature.

There are a lot more attractions in and around Cairns, enough to keep any visitor happy.
