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 many visitors who want to see the real Australia.

Laze 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, thousands of years ago.

Take a swim in the modern Cairns Esplanade lagoon, then look across the serene waters of Trinity Inlet and you will see coastal ranges and mangrove habitats that have not changed since the site was named by Captain James Cook in 1770.

The beautiful Esplanade Lagoon is the perfect place to spend a lazy day basking in the sun and dipping in the lagoon’s cool and seductive shallows. There are many shaded spots to escape from the sun in the heat of the day, as well as barbeque 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 on foot, or transport by cycle. Well used paths and dedicated walking paths are abundant. A walk through the Cairns Botanical Gardens is not to be neglected. It boasts 38 hectares of native Aussie gardens which are maintained to big city botanical garden standards, and many plants found here cannot be seen elsewhere.  Located among the fauna is a coffee shop and restaurant, which is open every day for breakfast and lunch. Access to the gardens is free.
