There are countless attractions in Cairns.

Cairns is situated in Australias tropical north and enjoys a superb tropical climate. Here is a place where tropical rainforests meet the Great Barrier Reef and the result is unique. Cairns has a wonderful and colorful history, and its wide streets today, are a product of the necessity for lots of room required to turn around a bullock dray. Earlier last century the city was put on the map by famous American game fishing aficionado, Zane Grey, who visited the region on a regular basis chasing the giant Black Marlin that are still prevalent in the area today. Game Fishing charters are readily available.

There are so many things to do in Cairns that it is nearly impossible to experience them all. A tour to the Great Barrier Reef should be at the top of your list. There are a number of experienced operators including Big Cat Green Island Cruises, Great Adventures, and Pro Dive. Of Course there are many others in the marketplace including day tours and extended trips in all kinds of boats and yachts. Some of these cater for the adventure scuba divers and some just for a family day out.

Another area that must be visited is the Atherton Tablelands. Many tours run into its rich countryside to the many attractions that exist there. This area can also be visited via the Skyrail cable car that runs from Cairns to the sleepy mountain village of Kuranda. You can take the Skyrail up and come back on the Scenic train, which will take you on a breathtaking ride past the Barron Falls and some other incredible scenery

These are within a short distance of all the cities sights. Such places as The Pacific International Hotel and The Cairns International Hotel are some of the most sought after. Just on the outskirts of Cairns are the northern beaches of Palm Cove, Trinity Beach, Machans Beach and Yorkeys Knob.Cairns Vacation Packages contain many of these hotels.

Cairns has an international airport and can be accessed from many overseas destinations. There are also many domestic flight options if you want to make Cairns part of a full Australian vacation including some of its other world famous destinations such as Ayers Rock and the Great Ocean Road.
