Cairns Region

(4.3/5 based on 32,000+ reviews for top 20 attractions)
Things to do: adventure, trails, nature
An area defined by its close relationship with the ocean and its focus on the beach-going lifestyle, Cairns Region has a picture-postcard aesthetic that combines favorably with a relaxed, down-to-earth atmosphere. A relative small slither of land--4,135 sq km (1,597 sq mi)--the region nevertheless boasts a large number of attractive beaches, coastal enclaves, scenic towns, and close proximity to the Great Barrier Reef. The region revolves around the economic prosperity of its immaculate capital, the city of Cairns. Use our Australia holiday planner to arrange your visit to Cairns Region and other destinations in Australia.
