Cairns shines with the carnival atmosphere of travellers all year round and the city is positively booming. It is located about 1700km from Brisbane and about 2500km from Sydney by road.
Cairns is the international gateway into Tropical North Queensland. Tropical North Queensland is as diverse in natural treasures as the cosmopolitan mix of cultures and peoples that call this region home.
The colourful, sophisticated capital of the tropical north, Cairns city is alive with life and charm. Here, warm northern hospitality and enthusiasm are the order of the day. Cairns is also a good base to discover port Douglas, the Atherton Tableland, Cape Tribulation and beyond.
