Cairns Esplanade Lagoon, Cairns City, Queensland
By Scott Pass
Cairns is a traveller's dream escape, where islands and reef meet the forest of the Daintree in Far North Queensland. Fringing outer reefs, adventurous activities and the dense backdrop of the Daintree Rainforest gives visitors every opportunity to capture the most beautiful photos in the world.
The flight to Cairns is just over two hours from Queensland's capital city, Brisbane, and a three hour flight from Sydney. Navigating Cairns city is as simple as renting a car, catching public transport or exploring on foot. Excellent dining, information centres and direct access to reef activities are all within close walking proximity to the Cairns Esplanade. Find out more about getting to Cairns.
