Cairns - QLD - Australia
Cairns is one of Queensland most famous cities, a gateway to the great barrier reef and a town that actually buzzes with energy from tourist and backpackers from Australia & around the world. Southern Australian’s flock to it in winter, international airlines fly in direct and backpackers set themselves up in town for weeks at time.
You visit Cairns as a full holiday destination for endless waterfront restaurants, shopping and as a city base for Great Barrier Reef, Cape Tribulation and other adventure day trips. Alternatively Cairns is also the closest airport for a resort holiday in Palm Cove and Port Douglas, a relaxing beach break in Mission Beach or and adventure holiday in the Daintree or other surrounding National Parks. If your heading north or south, Cairns is a good way place to start and finish your holiday for a nigh two.
