Cairns tourism means the Great Barrier reef, tropical rainforest, restaurants, spas and the many Cairns adventures. Cairns accommodation to suit all budgets is available, but we do suggest you prebook. Cairns tours are well organised and and visitor attractions and trips to places like the Great Barrier Reef are easy to make, but please do pre book as the Great Barrier Reef cruise boats do fill up! Cairns has plenty of adventures that includes flying, bungy jumping, rafting, diving, horse riding or even motor biking. More relaxed is Cairns golf and Cairns fishing. Cairns is the gateway to the Great Barrier Reef. The barrier reef is a magical world of undersea wonder that you can see and enjoy in many ways. In Cairns, you can catch a boat to the reef, swim with the fish, post a letter from the edge of the Great Barrier Reef surrounded by water, walk through some of the oldest rainforests in the world then escape to an island off the coast to shut out the world for a while.

Cairns is the perfect place to relax but it also offers the excitement of adventure on the high seas. Snorkeling, diving, sailing, island hopping – what a way to live your life. There is no better way to experience the natural wonder of the world in the world's largest marine park than from a boat where you can get close up and personal with a diverse range of marine life.

In Cairns, you can mix adventure fun and relaxation in the sun. From the fast thrills of kite flying and para sailing, to checking out the biodiversity of the rainforest and waterfalls in the area – you can fit in as little or as much adventure as you desire.

Don't forget the food. Cairns is the centre of the fishing industry and you'll get the best seafood anywhere, bought straight from the boats. Lush tropical fruits and fresh vegetables abound everywhere you go. The area around Cairns is a place of extreme contrasts and beauty with its lava tubes, hidden gorges, contrasting terrain, mining relics, incredible beaches and hot springs. From Cairns can travel the long road to Cape York Peninsula where you have true life experiences in the Australian outback. And don't forget to explore the Daintree.

In Cairns play a game of golf, go fishing, get out and experience the world of scuba diving on a world heritage reef. Visit the tablelands and the famous Kuranda, home to the artists and eco warriors of the area. Or stay in 5 star luxury rooms and private beach, book Cairns Accommodation with Expedia.

Cairns is a place to share in the culture of the original owners of the land. Listen to the stories of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders whose culture has survived 40,000 years.
