Accommodation in Cairns

Whether you want to snorkel in the Great Barrier Reef, white water raft down the Barron River, or ride the Kuranda Skyrail through a rainforest, Cairns is the holiday destination of a lifetime. The gateway to some of the best Queensland has to offer, this northern Australia city also has plenty of local shops, produce markets, and Aboriginal culture. Cairns has something for both relaxed and adventure travellers. Visit this lively city with family, friends, or alone—you won’t be disappointed.

Places to see in Cairns

As one of the most popular destinations in all of Australia, Cairns offers a variety of adventures suitable for all tastes. Perhaps the biggest draw in this area is the Great Barrier Reef, where there are a number of ways to experience this natural wonder. Day trips to the reef can be boarded from Cairns, as can longer-lasting cruises and other tours to the area. And aside from the reef, there is an assortment of other aquatic adventures to undertake. Whitewater rafting in this region is quite popular, as Cairns is home to several raging rivers. Those who seek a more serene scene, however, can stretch out on the relaxing sands of the Palm Cove community.

There’s a lot to do outside of the water as well. A tour of Daintree Rainforest, just to the north of Cairns, presents you with an opportunity to explore an incredible region of the tropics that’s unlike anywhere else on Earth. And the Kuranda Scenic Railway, which winds through the Macalister Mountain Range is a transportation marvel that’s not to be missed. The Cairns Tropical Zoo is also another popular spot, as is the Australian Butterfly Sanctuary, which features more than 1,500 species of majestic tropical butterflies.

Weather in Cairns

The tropical monsoon climate in which Cairns is located makes for extremely wet weather from November through May, while the complementary June till October dry season is cooler, though still receives lots of rain. Precipitation in the wet season regularly exceeds 400mm per month, when temperatures are relatively steamy. Unsurprisingly, floods are common in the wet season as the Barron and Mulgrave Rivers are prone to overflowing. And cyclones in Cairns are regular occurrences as well, though the city only experiences significant ones every few years.
