Cairns city, with its International and Domestic Airport, is the first stop for most visitors who want to see the real Australia. As well as providing direct access to the reef and the rainforest, the city itself offers a plethora of things to see and do.
Enjoy a stroll along the famous Esplanade and Marina, or take a swim in the ultra-modern Cairns Esplanade Lagoon, where you can cast your eyes across the calm waters of Trinity Inlet and see coastal mountains and mangrove areas that have changed little since the site was named by Captain James Cook in 1770.
With a favourable climate, Cairns is extremely well suited to walking or getting around by bicycle; there are many well trodden routes and dedicated walking tracks. Feeling peckish? � A visit to one of the city�s many multi-cultural, diverse and award winning restaurants is sure to satisfy your taste buds.
In Cairns, the hardest thing to do is make your choices to create the kind of holiday experiences and memories that will last a lifetime.
