Cairns - Holiday Destination
CAIRNS TIME:    
 
Cairns Australia (pronounced "cans") is a laid-back, yet cosmopolitan-style escape, offering access to exotic tropical cuisine, shopping, a taste of Aboriginal culture, and a range of adventure touring options.

THE CITY:
Cairns palm tree-studded Esplanade overlooking Trinity Harbour simply buzzes. The choice and quality of restaurants and cafés is amazing. You will find everything from coffee shops and ice creameries to bistros, wine bars, seafood restaurants and colourful night markets in Cairns.

Shoppers should head for the  Cairns Central complex and the Pier Marketplace - Cairns is a shopper's heaven providing a range of international and local wares.

Rusty's Market on Grafton Street is a blaze of colour and activity. You'll find tropical fruits like mangoes, jack fruit, black sapotes, rambutans and avocados as well as locally grown tea, coffee, and fresh herbs.


SPORTS:
There are several world championship golf courses in Cairns. Horse racing in season is a local and visitor favourite as well as the individual Cairns festivals, events, sporting events and more . . .


CULTURE:
In Cairns the top of the list for culture vultures should be Cairns Regional Art Gallery, arguably the country's finest regional gallery. There's always an exhibition of fine local art and often a major travelling exhibition on show.

Then there is Tjapukai Aboriginal Cultural Park. Tjapukai is amazing, combining culture, entertainment and education. Visitors are treated to authentic dancing, demonstrations of traditional foods and medicines, and can even learn how to throw a boomerang so that it comes back!


TOURS:
With hundreds of day tours operating out of Cairns each day, you will never be short of something to do. You can learn to snorkel, dive, go white water rafting, reef fishing, or take the bungee jump plunge.

Or you can indulge in more laid-back pleasures of Cairns like floating over the lush rainforest of the Atherton Tablelands in a hot air balloon or teeing off amid palm trees overlooking the Coral Sea. (Book A Tour)

Alongside Tjapukai is the environmentally stunning Skyrail, which glides silently just metres above dense rainforest to the quaint mountain village of Kuranda. From here you can board the famous Kuranda Rail for the trip back to Cairns over the spectacular Barron Gorge.
