Hotels In Cairns

Ellis Beach

While there's hundreds of hotels in Cairns, I've taken the guess work out of it for you.

These are my personal picks so you can just relax, unwind and enjoy your holiday.

Whether you're looking for five star luxury or backpacking at the beach, I've chosen only the ones I'd like to stay in.

Tourism is our major industry, so all Cairns Accommodation is of the highest standard.

Choosing hotels in Cairns Australia can be difficult because there's so much.

We'll show you the ones we like...only the extra clean ones with friendly staff will be mentioned.

The ones that make you feel special.

There's so many places to stay in Cairns and they all have their own distinct charm, however some stand out more than others.

These are the ones we'll tell you about.

The Esplanade Accommodation

Cairns city boasts a waterfront that extends for 3km and is known as The Esplanade...or the Nard to the locals.

The Esplanade has loads of holiday accommodation, restaurants, retail shops and information counters.

Across the road is our Lagoon where visitors and locals alike swim in the huge crystal clear, saltwater lagoon, overlooking the Trinity Inlet and Coral Sea.

From the Lagoon you can walk or jog along the boardwalk, passing exercise areas...I walk straight past these.

Also Muddies playground and coffee shop, heaps of free BBQ areas, a skateboard ramp and beach volleyball courts.

Cairns CBD Accommodation

If being closer to the shops is your thing, then the holiday accommodation here is also great.

Many of the hotels in Cairns are close to the shops and nightlife and only a street or two back from The Esplanade.

Cairns central accommodation maybe a little less expensive than the beachfront, however some of them still have excellent sea views.

You can find budget accommodation in Cairns or you can stay in 5 star luxury.

Cairns Resorts

Cairns Esplanade

Set in a tropical paradise of colorful frangipanis, hibiscus, poinciana's and a heaps of different types of palm trees, resorts in Cairns are among the best you'll find in all of Australia.

Most of them have huge free-form pools. Some even have sandy beaches and swim up bars. Cool off while sipping on a cocktail or two!

Cairns Northern Beaches

Some of the most beautiful Australian beaches are found right here in Cairns and our surrounding districts.

Fantastic accommodation overlook the palm fringed beaches and the brilliant blue waters of the Coral Sea.

The Cairns Northern Beaches extends for another 25km. and your holiday wouldn't be complete without a trip to one, or all of them.

The Northern Beaches start at Machans Beach, which is great for fishing, however there's no accommodation here.

From Machans the next beaches are:

So whether it's Cairns or the beaches, the accommodation is excellent. From affordable to luxury places to stay.

Cairns Bed and Breakfast

If you're looking for something a little bit different than hotels in Cairns, then why not consider a Bed and Breakfast?

For a special experience that gives peace and privacy, they could be the perfect choice for your honeymoon or romantic getaway.

You can choose from a tropical setting to sea views, beachfront accommodation, or stay in a gorgeous historic Queenslander bnb.

You'll receive true Cairns hospitality.

Cairns Villas and Retreats

Canoeing at Lake Placid

Your Cairns Accommodation options wouldn't be complete without introducing a choice of Villas and Retreats. They're really something special.

You can find these exclusive properties hidden away under the canopy of the rainforest or on absolute beach frontage. They can also be private island villas or a penthouse overlooking the Cairns Marina.

Wherever you find these rare gems, you can be assured you'll receive the ultimate in luxurious accommodation and personalized service.

Cairns Backpackers

For cheap accommodation in Cairns then backpacker hostels would be the pick.

Cairns backpacker hostels are renowned worldwide for being affordable and fun for all ages.

They're clean and comfortable, with private facilities or dormitory style rooms.

Even though these hostels are for those on a budget, there are still some that offer beachfront accommodation.

Backpackers always feel comfortable in Cairns because of our laid back lifestyle.

Disabled Friendly Accommodation

Our list wouldn't be complete without mentioning Disabled Friendly Accommodation.

Most Australian people will go to great lengths to assist in any way they can to make your time a memorable one.

So the hotels in Cairns want to see that everyone will have a great holiday, including those with a disability. Therefore many of them have specially designed facilities catering to these needs.

Well, which one of the hotels Cairns Australia would you like?
