Welcome to the tropical paradise that is the city of Cairns.
Nestled on the coast of Far North Queensland, the city is tucked between the Great Barrier Reef in the Coral Sea and the lush rolling downs of the Atherton Tableland to the west.
Cairns is home to more than 130,000 people from all corners of the world and is renowned for its tourism attractions like the Great Barrier Reef and the Wet Tropics World Heritage rainforest.
Cairns has an estimated population of 130,594 which is growing at an average rate of 1.8 per cent per year.
There is something here for every visitor to enjoy … adrenaline-charged adventures like diving, white water rafting and bungy jumping or more gentle pursuits like birdwatching, hiking, gourmet restaurants or just sitting under a palm tree sipping a cocktail.
Cairns offers visitors fabulous accommodation choices – everything from five star resorts to backpacker accommodation or camping grounds – along with temperate weather, sunny skies and sea breezes … where else can you enjoy an international band one day and total isolation on a tropical island the next?
Cairns is the jewel in the crown of Australia’s natural attractions … there is something for everyone to enjoy
