The Great Barrier Reef. Ever heard of it? Cairns is the official gateway to it, and it’s easy to see why. It’s got scenic surroundings, sweet nightlife and more fine dining than you can shake a trekking pole at. Pack up those poles and hop on flights to Cairns to see what’s happening in paradise.
Cairns Airport is just 6km from the popular Esplanade area in the city centre and even closer to the north side of town. However, taxis from the airport can be pricey; pre-booked shuttles are a cheaper option for getting to Cairns accommodation. If you don’t have tours lined up, book your own wheels with one of Wotif’s sweet car hire deals, roll down those windows and yell “Freeeeedom”!
If you’re landing at the crack of dawn, the park at the southern end of the Esplanade is a great place to grab a flat white and some brekkie while you watch the town wake up.
Ever zip-lined over a crocodile? If you totally want to, book afternoon Cairns flights and head straight to the Wildlife Dome. Fly through the air along with parrots and kookaburras—and make sure your buddies are ready with the camera.
You’d think everyone would be spent from their day of adventure sports, but night owls will be pleasantly surprised. There are bars and clubs all over town where you can continue (or start) the party.

Good size room. Excellent value for money. Pool bigger than expected. Great location and friendly staff. Wifi could be the quicker. Might have been related to location within the complex. At times it was very slow, although was able to watch Netflix via laptop at night.
We absolutely loved our stay! The pool was clean and amazing, the location is fantastic and the room (we stayed in a Hotel Spa Room) was clean, tidy and perfect for us. We can’t wait to be back!
