    This actually quite boring-designed Cathedral has the most spectacular Windows. Everything is represented by the dark volcanic eruption about crashed planes and sunken ships on the bottom of the sea up to innocent-looking kangaroos. The reason for this stems from the full name: "Saint Monica's War Memorial Cathedral". Here is pointed out also the horror of wars. We often don't visit churches, our accompaniment. She was however also impressed. An absolute must in Cairns! Parking is difficult.

Where to stay in Cairns

Though Cairns seems to offer an endless selection of cozy rooms, most budget-friendly options remain fully booked through the high season, stretching from June to September. Reserve early if you want a hotel room packed with amenities, or look for alternative lodgings in the city's smaller inns. As the backpacker capital of northern Queensland, Cairns features dozens of economical hostels providing comfortable beds and free Wi-Fi. For something far more luxurious, look for centrally located rental apartments with spacious rooms and harbor views.
