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 tropical beaches, snorkel on the reef and experience the unique tropical rainforests that date back to when the continent was part of ancient Gondwanaland, thousands of eons ago.
Take a swim in the ultra-modern Esplanade lagoon, then cast your eyes across the serene waters of Trinity Inlet and you will discover coastal mountains and mangrove habitats that have changed little since the site was branded by Captain James Cook in 1770.
The beautiful Esplanade Lagoon is the perfect place to spend a sultry day basking in the sun and dipping 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 of exercise.
Cairns is extremely well suited to walking, or transport by bicycle. Well frequented routes and dedicated walking paths are popular. A tour of the Cairns Botanical Gardens is not to be missed. It boasts 38 hectares of native Aussie gardens which are kept 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.
