Cairns is the heart of the Tropical North and is an excellent base for exploring this region. The Cairns International Airport is a short ride from the city centre. The Cairns Marina & Reef Fleet Terminal is only one block from the city centre and is the departure point for most Great Barrier Reef trips.
In the evening this small cosmopolitan centre offers the 100 000 residents and visitors a choice of over 100 restaurants. With an abundance of fresh seafood, exotic tropical fruits and the piquant flavours of native Australian cuisine, dining out is always a great experience.
Set in a prime location in the city centre, The Reef Hotel Casino complex offers everything you would expect from a boutique casino including restaurants, bars & entertainment.
The Cairns City Esplanade has recently undergone a major re-development which includes a swimming lagoon, waterfront boardwalks, BBQ areas & a children's water park playground.
The lagoon precinct spans 4 hectares, and is capable of accommodating 1000 swimmers at a time. It is open for free public use between 6am and 10pm daily.Edit This Page
