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 real Australia.
Bask on the sandy beaches, dive on the reef and experience the unique tropical rainforests that date back to when the continent was part of ancient Gondwanaland, many thousands of years ago.
Venture a dip in the ultra-modern Cairns Esplanade lagoon, then cast your eyes across the serene waters of Trinity Inlet and you will see coastal ranges and mangrove environs that have changed little since the site was discovered by Captain James Cook in 1770.
The stunning Esplanade Lagoon is the perfect spot to spend a lazy day basking in the sun and wading in the lagoon’s cool and inviting water. 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 culture and has many exercise facilities for those keen on getting a bit more active.
Cairns is extremely well suited to walking, or travel by bicycle. Well used pathways and dedicated walking tracks are popular. A visit to the Cairns Botanical Gardens is not to be neglected. It boasts 38 hectares of native Aussie gardens which are kept to big city botanical garden standards, and many species found here cannot be seen anywhere else in the world. Located among the plants is a coffee shop and restaurant, which is open daily for breakfast and lunch. Admission to the gardens is free.
