    Frequently asked questions about quad biking in Cairns

    Where can I go quad biking in Cairns and its surrounds?

    Kuranda: 40 minutes from Cairns via car.

    Green Island: 25 minutes from Cairns via ferry.

    How old do I have to be to go quad biking?

    The minimum age for quad biking is 12 years old. Some companies require riders to also be at least 120cm tall.

    What should I wear for quad biking?

    Riders are required to wear enclosed shoes for safety reasons. It's recommended you wear long pants and bring sunglasses. If you're riding along the sand dunes, it's a good idea to bring along a scarf to wear over your mouth so you don't inhale dust.

    Do I need a driver's licence to ride a quad bike?

    No, but it's a good idea to bring it as a form of ID.

    Can I book a quad biking experience if I've never ridden a quad bike before?

    Absolutely. Everyone will receive a briefing and training from their instructor before getting started.

    Will my quad biking session go ahead if it's raining?

    It's best to check with the quad biking operator you booked through, but generally your quad biking session will go ahead rain, hail or shine. Quad bikes perform well in wet and dry conditions, but heavy rain and thunderstorms may postpone your quad biking adventure.
