When thinking of relaxing Queensland holiday destinations, Cairns is at the top of many people’s list. You can spend your days cooling off at the Cairns Esplanade Lagoon or head to Muddy’s Playground to tire out your energetic kids with fun on flying foxes, rope bridges and see-saws. And when the sun goes down and the temperature cools down a notch, wander along The Esplanade to find a table at one of the many restaurants serving world-class cuisine or find the perfect souvenir at Cairns Night Markets.
You’ll find this year-round getaway spot is also packed with resort-style accommodation offering lagoon pools, tasty cocktails and luxurious spas. Stay in five-star opulence in the heart of the marina, or in a colourful boutique hotel with on-site barbecues that invite home-cooked meals eaten under the wide open sky. When you finally retire to your hotel room, let the tropical ocean breeze help you drift off to sleep so you’re refreshed for another day’s sightseeing.
