Canyoning

near Cairns

Raging Thunder Adventures has added a new half-day adventure

to its tour program in Queensland’s tropical north. Thrillseekers

can abseil, zip line, slide and jump across and alongside the

waterfalls and pools of Crystal Canyon near Cairns on the

Canyoning tour which takes a maximum 12 people with two

guides and is suitable even for beginners. The rocky watercourse

goes behind the public access areas of the Crystal Cascades on

an 11-metre descent – and although the activities are strictly

controlled for safety, you will get wet! However, it is in the middle

of a tropical rainforest so the water is warm. Protective safety gear

is provided. Cairns Canyoning at Crystal Canyon tour costs $169

per person including return transfers, all training, equipment and

a light lunch. Book at

Copenhagen

in style

Danes have been called the happiest people in the world and if you’re

tempted to see why then Copenhagen is the place to go. It’s also

been consistently rated one of the top 10 cities in the world to visit

and not just because it’s home to the best restaurant in the world,

noma. Before you go, netpreneurs Anna Peucket and Søren Jepson,

creators of city guide website

12hrs.net,

provide a stylish introduction

to all the coolest places to eat, sleep and shop in their new book

Copenhagen Style Guide

.

Not everything is lavish – it also reveals quirky gems such as the

smallest hotel (one room) and smallest café (five seats), where to find

street food or gourmet popsicles, when and where to find the flea

market and the work of the city’s artisans – and they do share a 12-

hour hit list.

Overnighters can immerse themselves in Danish design by opting

to stay in the Arne Jacobsen room at the Hotel Alexandra (

pictured

below

), an homage to its namesake and just one of several in the

hotel to choose from. The guide is divided into precincts, includes

Q&As with some arty locals and features street style images that

provide some wistful browsing whether you decide to travel or not.
