Diverse natural landscapes, complemented by world heritage icons and abundant recreational facilities, create a tropical paradise for visitors.
Adventurous by nature
Experience the adrenaline of white water rafting, skydiving from 14,000 feet parachuting onto golden sands of Mission Beach, or hiking ancient rainforests of the Daintree – 40 million years older than the Amazon!
The Cairns Adventure Festival attracts hundreds of athletes from across the globe to compete in a number of world class endurance events in a unique, tropical destination.
World class marina in the CBD
Cairns Marlin Marina is your gateway to the Great Barrier Reef and is perfectly located immediately adjacent to the Cairns Central Business District. This is a safe and relaxed marina with modern facilities. It is a protected floating marina with 266 berths surrounded by the Marlin Wharf and Sailfish Quay which doubles as a wave barrier. The Marina berths can accommodate vessels ranging from 10m to luxury superyachts.
A colourful array of culture and festivals
Cairns showcases an array of culture and colour throughout the year, celebrating the region’s diversity. Visit during May to experience the Port Douglas Carnivale, or celebrate Cairns Festival during August and September.
"Cairns Marlin Marina is now recognised as the Superyacht hub of Australia."
