Cairns Holidays

This area of Cairns and Northern Beaches is home to a population of 150 000 friendly people.

Brisbane, the state capital, can be found approximately 1 400 kilometres to the southeast of this destination. Alternatively, Kamerunga is 7 kilometres to the northwest.

When searching for a great place to take the family here, you'd do well to head out to Muddy's Playground.

Millions of species inhabit our oceans, so you and your little ones had better start getting to know them. Make a trip to Cairns Aquarium to explore some of the familiar, and the not so familiar, sea creatures of our big blue planet.

Meet creatures great and small at the ZOO To You HQ Wildlife Discovery Centre, a location that you're going to love.

Is the sound of clinking chips music to your ears? Rendezvous with Lady Luck and test the waters at the Reef Hotel Casino.

If you have a passion for learning about plants and garden design, make sure you check out one or two of Cairns' botanical parks. Enjoy the distinct scent of fresh vegetation at the Centenary Lakes Botanic Gardens, or walk around the Flecker Botanic Gardens.

Of all the activities in this region, nature enthusiasts will definitely have fun spending time at Crystal Cascades.

This region has a range of environmental reserves where you and your little ones can take pleasure in an adventurous day out. Make a day trip to Esplanade Lagoon or Mount Whitfield Conservation Park, two recommended spots. Do you have a few extra days? Then you'll want to consider Red Arrow Walk and Michaelmas Cay as well.

Do you consider yourself a bit of an art critic? A lazy afternoon spent perusing the local galleries might be just what the doctor ordered. The Cairns Regional Gallery and the Kick Contemporary Arts hold a range of captivating works that will get the creative juices flowing.

Learn all about the history of the area while walking around some of its engaging exhibition spaces. The Cairns Historical Society Museum and the Cairns Museum will leave your noggin overflowing with interesting new information and anecdotes.

This area possesses a unique blend of old and new, providing history boffins a heap of things to get out and see. Spend a day on a self-guided tour of the Cairns Esplanade, the Cultural Place and the Cairns Esplanade Charles Street Parkland. The Esplanade Boardwalk is also worth seeing if you can fit it in.

A stop off at one of this area's religious structures is the perfect way to learn more about local culture. If this sounds like something you'd be keen to do, St Monica's Cathedral should be at the top of your to-do list.

You'll discover a couple of fun shopping complexes in Cairns that are worth a gander. Cairns Central Shopping Centre and Cairns Night Markets are great for a bit of bargain hunting.

Cairns is famous for being an area of top-quality entertainment, and its many entertainment facilities offer something to suit all tastes almost every day of the week. Organise the troops and discover what's on at the Cairns Convention Centre and the Cairns Civic Theatre. And for those enthusiasts looking for something more, Tanks Arts Centre and the Jute Theatre are some other great options.

A holiday away is always a unique experience because you'll never stumble across two places that are exactly alike. The less-known attractions in this area also contribute to the unique collection of things to see and places to go. Grab your notes and pencil in stops at the Centre of Contemporary Arts, the Reef Teach, and Cairns Zoom and Wildlife Dome.
