About Cairns

Cairns is located in the northern part of Queensland and is the area’s core city. Cairns is located very close to the equator and is completely surrounded by tropical rainforests. With its long Great Barrier Reef, stunning coastline, jewel-like islands, silver-sand beaches and sapphire blue ocean, it is a true tropical holiday destination. While here, you can take a boat out to the world-famous Great Barrier Reef and check out the coral life beneath the sea. You can also go whitewater rafting, horseback riding, or take a trip in a hot air balloon for a bird’s-eye view of the ancient tropical rainforest. The beautiful scenery on the shores of the Pacific Ocean and inland is sure to come as a pleasant surprise. Once is never enough, when it comes to a visit to Cairns.

Beach
The Corniche is the hub of Cairns' life and the iconic landscape of Cairns. It is a boulevard full of the charm of a seaside resort. The coastal boulevard is built along the beach. The road stretches along Sany Bay. On one side is the scenery of the beach, the blue sky, the bright sunshine, and the neat high-rise building on one side. The Spencer Street has a Marin breakwater towards the sea, and visitors to the boat trip make the place very lively.
