Cairns Kids Activities - Keeping our Kids Inspired & Active

Often in the far north it is warm enough in the rain to enjoy the overflowing water holes, or get out and see some of the magnificent waterfalls in full flow. Even the lagoon or the muddies playground water play areas can be fun in the rain if you are prepared to get wet. Have a look at all the options in the water holes and playgrounds section for fun far north outdoor activities.

If, however, you would prefer to keep dry, here you will find a few options that wont need towels at the end of the outing although a few towels in the back of the car are always a good idea in the wet season!

ps - the library could also be a good option - check out the libraries category.
