Cairns Esplanade Lagoon

Nick Marshall

Cairns is popular with many travellers because it is easily reached by plane and offers a perfect spot to explore the rest of Queensland. It offers some interesting sights, such as a handful of museums and the old wharf area. You think of an activity and there is probably the possibility to arrange it in Cairns. Or at least discuss it over a beer in one of the many bars that make Cairns’ nightlife into what it is known for these days. There are five shopping centres that you can find in the Cairns central business district. The Pier Marketplace has also a variety of shops and markets. From the pier, several boats set off for one of the islands known for their natural beauty. Because face it, Cairns is a nice place but the main reason why you came over here is probably to visit the Great Barrier Reef and the Wet Tropics World Heritage Rainforest Area.  One of the marquee destinations on the Great Barrier Reef is Dunk Island, with a single resort surrounded by rain forest.
