This is a fun, exciting and informative tour where we will take in a variety of interesting scenery,wildlife and some great photo opportunities. We use the latest in self balancing technology “The Ninebot” which is the next generation Segway. So EASY to ride anyone can do it.
The tour begins at the Northern end of the Cairns Esplanade. There is be a 15 minute training period before we depart. During the training period we will enjoy the sweeping views from the Cairns foreshore over to Trinity Inlet.
We will then head north following the cycle tracks and cross the bridge to Salt Water Creek, which is lined with mangroves that provide breeding grounds for reef marine life. Keep an eye out for saltwater crocodiles.
We then arrive at the beautiful Cairns Botanical Gardens and cross into the Centenary Lakes which is a unique wetlands area home to many species of flora and fauna.
The Freshwater lake is a natural freshwater swamp, which is decorated by a patchwork of water-lilies that provide shelter for a variety of fish, turtles and frogs.
The lake is also home to many bird species, depending on the season visitors may see magpie geese, black ducks, black- necked storks and cormorants.
We will then return to our starting point on the Cairns Esplanade, the full length or the tour is about 12km and will take approximately 90 minutes.
