Cairns Segway Tour

Experience the Cairns Esplanade & Botanic Gardens on a 90-minute scenic Segway tour.

This is a fun, exciting and informative tour where we will take in a variety of interesting scenes. There will be the opportunity to spot some wildlife and there are some great photo opportunities. We will be using the latest in self balancing technology “The Ninebot” which is the next generation Segway and are so easy to ride anyone can do it.

After a quick introduction and 5 minutes practice on the the Ninebot segways we are ready to explore.

Your segway journey starts on the Cairns Esplanade. We travel on the bike paths at the southern end of the Cairns Esplanade to get you ready for the tracks and paths around Centenary Lakes.

Centenary Lakes is part of the Cairns Botanical Gardens and a unique wetlands area home to many species of flora and fauna.  We will journey along the paths, bridges and tracks that wind through gardens, saltwater creeks and mangrove swamps.

After a quick stop at the Chinese garden we will then continue north following the cycle tracks and cross the bridge to Salt Water Creek, we will follow the creek which is lined with mangroves that provide breeding grounds for prawns and mud crabs. Keep an eye out for saltwater crocodiles and barramundi.

We will arrive at the beautiful Cairns Botanical Gardens and visit the butterfly sanctuary and fern house with its dazzling orchid displays. This is a hidden gem which many visitors to Cairns miss including in their itinerary.

After the Fern House we return to our starting point on the Cairns Esplanade, the full length or the tour is about 14km and will take approximately 90 minutes.

  

The next generation Ninebot vehicles are easy to learn and children from 12 years are welcome to join the tour.
