"Glad we stayed here. Great location on the boardwalk. Wish we'd stayed more than a night. We weren't able to use the pool area and it looked amazing!

Accommodation in Cairns

Grab your sunnies and jandals, and get ready for an adventure in Cairns, Australia. Sitting along the northern coast of Queensland, Cairns is a scenic city surrounded by rainforest. If you’re looking to explore the great outdoors, this is the place to do it. Many visitors use Cairns as a home base for heading out to the Great Barrier Reef, which is just a 90-minute boat ride away. At the reef, scuba dive or snorkel around the coral gardens and get up close and personal with the marine life. While you’re in town, venture around the Mangrove Boardwalk to experience the swampy wetlands, and birdwatch along the Centenary Lakes at the Flecker Botanic Gardens. Cairns is also a prime destination for day trips to nearby hot spots, such as Green Island off the coast, Daintree 110 km to the north, and the Crystal Cascades just to the east of town. There’s plenty of indoor attractions as well, such as the Cairns Regional Gallery, Centre of Contemporary Arts, and Cairns Museum. Whether you’re planning on staying in the heart of Cairns or exploring outside of the city, you’ll be talking about your QLD adventure for years to come.

Getting There

When it comes time to decide when to visit, know that January is typically the hottest month, with temperatures around 28 degrees C, while June is the coolest time of the year with temperatures averaging 22 degrees C. Once you’ve picked a date to visit, fly into Cairns Airport (CNS), which is just 5 km northwest of the city centre. Because it’s such a quick drive, you can always rent a car in Cairns, but if you prefer public transportation, hop on the Airport Connect or the Translink bus. Alternatively, if you’re driving from other coastal cities in Queensland farther south, head north on National Highway A1. There’s plenty to explore and experience, as soon as you de-board your plane.
