Cairns - Queensland Australia

Visitor Information

Cairns is situated in the Northern end of Tropical Queensland Australia. It's a modern City with a great location to explore some of Australia's vast array of flora and fauna. 
Cairns City is the international gateway into Tropical North Queensland, and carries with pride the mantle of safest tropical city in the world.

 

Residents of the area are also proud to be custodians of two of the world’s greatest natural treasures - the Great Barrier Reef and the Wet Tropics Rainforests. Both of these wonderful attractions are World Heritage listed, and there are very few places in the world where two such treasures rest side by side.
Cairns International Airport is the nation’s fifth busiest in terms of international and domestic passenger movements, and the city also is rated the third most popular tourist destination in the country after Sydney and Brisbane. The city is a vibrant cosmopolitan centre and its residents enjoy an enviable lifestyle. The city is fringed by lush rainforests and, to the north and south, are miles of sandy beaches and turquoise oceans teeming with marine life. From Cairns, daily cruise boats and sail boats travel to Green Island, Fitzroy Island and the outer reef. Charter seaplanes and helicopters are also available. The World Heritage Listed Great Barrier Reef is as diverse as it is beautiful. Many visitors flock to the reef to experience what is arguably the best diving in the world. Others choose a glass bottomed boat, or a semi-submersible to view the myriad species of coral and marine life.
