If you're after a great work out and some amazing view of Cairns and the surrounding area then the Red Arrow Walk is for you. Nestled at the base of Mount Whitfield you begin the walk in lush tropical rain-forest. The 1.3 km track then winds upwards behind the Botanical Gardens and brings you out over looking the sugar cane fields of Stratford and then around to amazing clear blue ocean views of the Coral Sea.
Take heed this walk is not for everyone and it is vital that you have a moderate level of fitness. A hat, good walking shoes and water is a must if you are visiting during warmer parts of the day. The walk takes on average 40 min to complete.
