Cairns Accommodation

Cairns is a tourism mecca located in beautiful tropical north Queensland that has an infectious holiday vibe perfect for your next getaway.

After spending a day on a Quiksilver Great Barrier Reef tour snorkelling amongst tropical fish and vibrant coral reefs, or being ferried across tropical rainforests on the Kuranda Skyrail, or getting up close and personal with the giant reptiles at Hartley’s Crocodile Adventures you will be well and truly convinced that Cairns provides bucket loads of tropical holiday fun. And this is just the start of the adventure…

Chartered fishing expeditions are among the most popular of activities, along with water sports, go karting, bush safaris, canopy surfing, cave touring, hot air ballooning, Great Barrier Reef cruises, cultural shows, and so much more; Cairns promises you the world and delivers the universe.

Awash with enough restaurants, cafés, bars, and nightlife to keep even an insomniac entertained and well-fed, Cairns is always buzzing with contagious atmosphere.

There is a plethora of Cairns accommodation available from cosy and romantic villas, spacious and indulgent holiday houses, ecofriendly hotels, 5 star luxury resorts, and harbour view apartments. Keep in mind, there’s no beach in town (see Cairns Beaches accommodation which is just 10 minutes away), however the magnificent esplanade lagoon makes up for it. Not to mention the northern beaches are only a bus stop away!
