“Botanical gardens are close by and well worth having a look at all the flora and fauna, the tropics is an amazing place to visit and see nature at its best. There is also an exercise walk to a view overlooking the city of Cairns and the Ocean. It is called the red arrow, this is also next to the botanical gardens. It is medium to strenuous climbing of stairs, but well worth the view when you reach the top . Cafes and restuarants nearby for a well deserved breakfast/drink”

The Red Arrow loop trail (1.5Km return) is the most popular walking track, enjoy the rainforest whilst ascending up to the lookout , with views over the city and out to Green Island. A short link trail a further 50 metres up is where the Blue Arrow loop trail (4.5Km return) starts. The Blue Arrow trail takes you through mainly rainforest to an elevation of 300m. About half way around, a short side track will take you to a lookout on the summit of Mt Lumley Hill where you get views along the coast to the north of Cairns.”
