Cairns City is the heart of tropical North Queensland and is the primary gateway to Northern Australia. Cairns looks a picture, framed by the spectacular twin backdrops of rainforest mountain ranges and the sparkling Coral sea.

Cairns is a modern, sophisticated city. An ideal base to explore the wider Tropical North Queensland region, with access to World Heritage listed Reef, Rainforest and Outback.

A focal point for the city is the Cairns Esplanade. Almost 2 kilometres of landscaped parkland fringes a busy thoroughfare and restaurant strip on one side and a natural harbour inlet on the other.
