6. But wait - should I stay longer?

Good question.

What do you know about Tropical North Queensland? Do you know about all the places you can ride?

Have you been riding at Atherton MTB Park?

What about visiting Lake Barrine, or cruising the Cassowary Coast? Maybe, you should forget the advice so far, rent a campervan, and tour tropical north Queensland in a camper.

There is a lot to see and do up north. The Atherton plateau has a gin distillery, stunning freshwater lakes, a rail trail, the Atherton MTB Park, cute townships, and of course the Spy and Camera Museum at Herberton.

Tropical North Queensland isn't short on stories as well, and with an open agenda you could traipse around, finding the best stories at the front bar of local watering holes. It'd be quite a trip.

For those who like action, don't forget the jetboat trips out of Cairns, reef tours from Port Douglas, and of course Bungy Jumping at Smithfield. And that's just the start.

If you're a bikepacker - maybe the CREB track is the challenge you have been waiting for?

Reef to Reef have a bunch of things you can do while in this tropical playground.
