Welcome to Innisfail and the Cassowary Coast

Innisfail is a beautiful rural town just 90 minutes south of Cairns, best known for its sugar and banana industries and high seasonal rainfall. Enjoy a less hurried lifestyle and take time to explore the local area. A short boat ride away from the coast of Innisfail you'll find the magnificent Great Barrier Reef – just waiting to be explored. Enjoy the rainforest from a new perspective as you wander through Mamu Tropical Skywalk or head to one of many nearby beaches for a little R&R.

The Cassowary Coast region extends from Cardwell in the south to Innisfail (a scenic drive around 90 minutes south of Cairns). There is so much to explore with the Great Barrier Reef and world heritage rainforest right on your doorstep. Explore local Indigenous culture, and while away your weekends on palm fringed beaches, stunning waterfalls, freshwater swimming holes and tropical islands or camping to mention a few activities. Our beautiful Tully River offers one of the best white-water rafting sites in Australia!
