Resort Cairns – What Cairns has to Offer
Cairns grants access to the World Heritage listed Great Barrier Reef and the Wet Tropics Rainforests along with the Australian Outback. Cairns, with its international and domestic airport, is the first stop for most visitors who want to see the real Australia.
Relax on the glorious beaches, dive on the reef and experience the unique tropical rainforests that date back to when the continent was part of ancient Gondwanaland, thousands of years ago.
Take a dip in the ultra-modern Esplanade lagoon, then look across the serene waters of Trinity Inlet and you will discover coastal mountains and mangrove areas that have changed little since the site was named by Captain James Cook in 1770.
The beautiful Esplanade Lagoon is the perfect spot to spend a lazy day basking in the sun and dipping in the lagoon’s cool and inviting shallows. There are many shaded spots to take refuge from the sun in the heat of the day, as well as cooking facilities. The boardwalk has unique displays of Cairns’s local history and has many exercise facilities for those keen on getting a bit of exercise.
Cairns is extremely well suited to travel by foot, or transport by bicycle. Well trodden pathways and dedicated walking paths abound. A walk through the Cairns Botanical Gardens is not to be neglected. It features 38 hectares of native Aussie gardens which are kept to big city botanical garden standards, and many species found here cannot be seen elsewhere. Located among the vegetation is a coffee shop and restaurant, which is open every day for breakfast and lunch. Entry to the gardens is free.
