Get ready to indulge in the tropics as Cairns is the gateway to the Great Barrier Reef and Daintree Rainforest. Take a relaxing cableway up to Kurranda or Bungie Jump high up in the trees. The Cairns Esplanade is full of life with many shops, eateries, markets and the famous Lagoon. With many free activities, our city is great for all backpackers.
At night our city does not sleep with many restaurants, pubs and night life options that light up the night. The Cairns Night Markets are worth the trip for local cuisine, art, gifts and even massages. Walk through our lit up trees along the water or sit by the lagoon and watch the city bustle. The usual street performers will surprise you with their great talents to add to your experience.
