Welcome to the tropical beaches of Cairns and Great Barrier Reef, home of the cleanest beach in Australia. Stretching some 26 kilometres along beautiful tropical coastline, Cairns has eight main beaches all within 45 minutes driving distance north of the CBD.
Cairns Beaches are uncluttered and uncrowded, and each beachside suburb has its own unique character and charm making it easy for you to find your ideal tropical beach in Cairns and Great Barrier Reef.
Build a sandcastle or enjoy a picnic with the family at the popular holiday favourites of Trinity Beach and Yorkey’s Knob. Dance at dusk along a sparkling Machans or Holloways Beach shoreline, or escape to a secluded cove with a picnic hamper for two at quiet Kewarra Beach. Take your rest in the tropical splendour of Palm Cove - which has become a sought-after resort destination.
Imagine a city offering spectacular scenery, world-class accommodation, fine dining, art and cultural activities and unique attractions and experiences.
The vibrant tropical city of Cairns is the gateway to two World Heritage areas, the Great Barrier Reef and Wet Tropics Rainforest, as well as the Outback.
It’s a sophisticated destination you’ll never want to leave.
