We loved Cairns. The tours were great, we love the boardwalk, the swimming pool on the esplanade and the bus service was second to none.

Cool Cairns

With a wide range of comfortable hotels in Cairns, Queensland’s northeast coastal city is not your typical Australian metropolis. Cairns has a modern yet laidback feel and is blessed with a warm tropical climate, making it a perfect holiday getaway. Perhaps, Cairns’ most delightful feature is its lively city centre, which warmly welcomes tourists with various souvenir and fashions shops, bars, and cafes. The city promises to satisfy any visitor’s appetite with restaurants serving international cuisines, and appeases the need for entertainment with a variety of clubs and grand casino. Fortunately, there is a wide selection of Cairns accommodation choices within the city centre that can give you a front row seat to all the downtown action. Many of the prominent hotels in Cairns are close to the city’s impressive esplanade, which offers visitors the opportunity to relax around its gorgeous lagoon.

The city is the highly favoured gateway to Australia’s great natural wonders -- the Great Barrier Reef and the Daintree Rainforest. The world-renowned natural reef system and the Australian continent’s largest rainforest are only a few hours away from the city. Thus, Cairns is an ideal place to arrange adventurous tours such as snorkelling, glass-bottomed boat rides and hiking.

After delving into exciting excursions, going back to a cosy and comfortable accommodation in Cairns may be the perfect ending to an action-packed day. But if you book your hotel via HotelClub, you will also gain access to exclusive offers and member benefits that will make your Cairns holiday even more incredible. To reach Cairns, you only need to fly two hours from Brisbane and three hours from Sydney.
