Cairns

Cairns is the hub for the far north, and is the fastest growing city in Australia with over 160,000 people. Cairns has everything you need, including perfect warm tropical weather all year round. A big tourist attraction is to ride the Skyrail from Smithfield to Kuranda, taking in the great Barron Falls and World Heritage Rainforest. Kuranda Scenic Railway is another, or do both, ride the skyrail up and return by the train, or visa versa. Palm Cove is a short drive north, a tropical beach lined with palms, resorts, boutique shops and award winning cafés and restaurants. The beach also has a stinger net for care-free swimming in the summer months.
