Cairns Accommodation

Cairns Accomodation is plentiful and variable

Cairns is a very popular tourist destination and the amount of places to stay is huge. Most of the places are in the central city, walking distance to everywhere.

A smaller amount of places is in North Cairns, still walking distance to almost everywhere. Many people also stay in Cairns Northen Beaches. They are beautiful quiet communities, not too far away, and there is even continuous bus service to the city.
