Resort Cairns – What Cairns has to Offer
Cairns gives 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 many visitors who want to see the authentic Australia.
Laze on the sandy beaches, dive on the reef and experience the unique tropical rainforests that date back to when Australia was part of ancient Gondwanaland, many thousands of years ago.
Take a swim in the relaxing Esplanade lagoon, then look across the calm waters of Trinity Inlet and you will see coastal mountains and mangrove environs that have not changed since the site was discovered by Captain James Cook in 1770.
The stunning Esplanade Lagoon is the perfect place to spend a sultry day basking in the sun and wading in the lagoon’s cool and inviting water. There are many shady spots to escape from the sun in the heat of the day, as well as cooking facilities. The boardwalk has unique displays of Cairns’s local culture and has many exercise facilities for those keen on getting a bit of exercise.
Cairns is extremely well suited to travel on foot, or transport by bicycle. Well trodden routes and dedicated walking paths are popular. A visit to the Cairns Botanical Gardens is not to be neglected. It features 38 hectares of natural Aussie gardens which are maintained to big city botanical garden standards, and many plants found here cannot be seen elsewhere. Located among the plants is a coffee shop and restaurant, which is open every day for breakfast and lunch. Entry to the gardens is free.
