Located in Far North Queensland, Australia, Cairns is a regional city that is approximately 1,700 km from Queensland’s capital, Brisbane City. Founded in 1876 – and named after the Governor of Queensland of that time, William Wellington Cairns – the original intent of this beautiful city was a gateway for miners heading to the Hodgkinson River goldfield. It is now a major port for the export of agricultural products, sugar cane, minerals and metals. During World War ll, Cairns played an integral part in hosting allied forces for operations in the Pacific, particularly the 1942 Battle of the Coral Sea. Used as a staging base by the US Army Air Force and Royal Australian Air Force, as well as the US Navy and Royal Australian Navy, the town was transformed during this time – a stark contrast to what it is today!
This stunning coastal city is now a mecca for local and international tourists alike, who delight in the balmy tropical climate, great shopping, easy access to the Great Barrier Reef, the Wet Tropics of Queensland and the Atherton Tableland. There are a plethora of natural features that attract tourists worldwide; the meandering rivers, cascading waterfalls, tropical rain forests and majestic mountain ranges are extremely popular and contribute to Cairns being the fourth-most popular destination in Australia for international tourists. Of course, the miles and miles of gorgeous beaches – such as Machans Beach, Holloways Beach, Yorkeys Knob, Trinity Park, Trinity Beach, Kewarra Beach, Clifton Beach, Palm Cove, and Ellis Beach – also help to pull in the crowds!
