Cairns Accommodation Guide: A selection of holiday apartments in Cairns, North Queensland, Australia.

Why choose a holiday in Cairns, Australia?

For the simple reason that Cairns has something to offer everybody – sounds impossible, but it’s true! Situated in the centre of Tropical North Queensland and minutes from the International airport, Cairns is the ideal base from which to explore the outstanding natural beauty of the area.

A multitude of exciting tour choices awaits you. Pristine World Heritage listed rainforests, sparkling blue waters housing the Great Barrier Reef, beautiful northern beaches, and an array of exciting activities are just a few of the attractions easily accessible from Cairns.

At the top of the list for most visitors to Cairns is a trip to the Great Barrier Reef. Some of the most exotic and rare diving and snorkeling sites in the world are a short distance from the city of Cairns, courtesy of dozens of reef tour companies. Breathtaking reefs, exotic fish, clear warm water and the hot sun combine to make a glorious experience. Whether you are interested in deep-sea diving among giant wrasse, or paddling in shallow water surrounded by tiny fish on the edge of a sandy cay, the Great Barrier Reef is a place you must visit.

Another popular option for holidaymakers is the famous Skyrail adventure, a 1-hour trip above a canopy of precious rainforests to the small township of Kuranda. Or, you can ride aboard the Kuranda Historic Railway and enjoy views of cascading waterfalls.

If time permits, the Daintree World Heritage National park is sensational and can be combined with a walk into Mossman Gorge and a visit to the rapidly expanding town of Port Douglas. The variety and beauty of the Atherton Tablelands extending to the west into the outback is well worth the visit. For visitors keen to throw a fishing line into the teeming waters, this region offers a wide range of options from beach fishing to action-packed marlin game fishing. And don't forget about the many internationally acclaimed golf courses that are a short distance from the city.

And this is just the start… for the adventurous and energetic there is white water rafting, skydiving, ballooning, horse riding and much more. There are golden northern beaches easily accessible by car or bus, and for the safest beach in the north we have the new swimming lagoon and beach on the Cairns Esplanade.

Closer to the city you can spend time at the Botanical Gardens, the Flying Doctor Visitor Centre, aquarium, art gallery, shopping centres, markets or at a range of sporting and recreational clubs. At night the city comes to life at the Casino, an excellent variety of restaurants, theatres, cinemas, night clubs and the night markets, or you can just stroll around and soak up the ambience of balmy tropical evenings.

Cairns is the gateway to Far North Queensland attractions and activities. Be impressed by the friendly hospitality of the Cairns people, relish the atmosphere and enjoy the experience!
