About Cairns

Cairns boasts a relaxed vibe, rolling from sunrise to sunset in a single effortless sweep. Cairns is all about the three Rs: reef, rainforest, raucousness. Cairns packs more into its borders than any other once-upon-a-time small town. The Daintree Forest is worth a peek, a dream and a picture; take in the Atherton Tablelands; be bewildered by the Coral Sea and explore the underwater metropolis of the Great Barrier Reef.

Do you have your snorkelling kit ready? For more deets on what you can get up to in Cairns, check out our tips in the Cairns Travel Guide.
