I'm planning to cycle to Tjapukai from Cairns city for a day tour in early March.
1. I checked Google Maps and the road looks fine enough from both earth view and street view, but I want to know beforehand if Queensland have any rules regarding cycling on the road and if it's a stupid idea in general due to actual road conditions?
2. Is there a place for me to park and lock my bicycle? (Preferably with a shade because it's not my bike and the last thing I want is to spoil it)
3. Do you have any water stands where I can refill my bottle? Otherwise I may have to consider carrying more with me.
4. In case it rains, what sort of indoor activities do you have? (Apart from the dance show because I can't be watching the same performance twice in a day!)
Cycling is extremely popular in Cairns and there are many cyclists riding from Cairns to the Northern Beaches on a daily basis. The hwy has a marked white line for cyclists to stay behind and cars must allow 1.5 metres from cyclists. All roundabouts now have a cycle lane around them too. You must wear a helmet.
You could park your bike on our front entrance rampway, it is undercover and there are poles. We have a cafe and restaurant where you can purchase water bottles.
Tjapukai is an all weather venue so all shows provide cover. Email us and we can send you a daily schedule so you can plan your day.
