Vacation rental accommodations in Cairns, the unofficial capital of Tropical North Queensland
, have a beautiful coastal location on Trinity Bay
surrounded by the rainforest topped hills of the Atherton Tablelands
. The city is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Australia
for apartment rentals, condo rentals and villa rentals. From this stylish international city, the islands, rainforest and reef of tropical North Queensland
are steps away from vacation rentals. Cairns has an extensive tourist infrastructure to cater to over 1 million annual tourists
including an international airport, villas and lodging of all standards, restaurants, bars, nightclubs a casino, museums, Barrier Reef displays, theatres and a truly tropical climate.
Soak up the city’s relaxed, tropical ambience on the Cairns Foreshore Promenade
. At its centre is a 4,800 square metre saltwater lagoon. Minutes from vacation rental accommodation, you can cycle, walk or rollerblade along the three kilometre Esplanade Walking Trail
or wandering between the restaurants, bars and hotels with beautiful waterfront views.
Snorkel, dive or plan a day trip from conveniently located apartment rental, condo rental and villa rental accommodation to the Great Barrier Reef, a World Heritage-listed spectacular of coral islands, sponges and seaweed
. Experience white water rafting down powerful Tully River, just an hour south of Cairns or float your inflatable boat down the rapids of the Barron River, past the majestic scenery of Barron Gorge National Park
Kuranda vacation rentals
are a walk away from the quaint market selling arts and crafts and several restaurants and cafes. The Kuranda Scenic Railway
takes you along steep cliff faces, through deep gorges, near cascading waterfalls and dense rainforest. The train has heritage carriages to enhance the experience. The Cairns Skyrail is the single most visited attraction in Tropical North Queensland
. The Skyrail is a cable car system which departs from just outside Cairns Airport and after stopping at several stations reaches the township of Kuranda in about 40 minutes.
Charming apartment rental, condo rental and villa rental accommodation are about a two hour drive from The Daintree Rainforest, a World Heritage Region
. The scenic drive provides stunning coastal views to the small town of Mossman where a ferry crossing takes you over The Daintree River, into the rainforest itself. See fresh-water crocodiles sunning themselves on the mangrove-lined river banks, as well as many rare tropical birds and animals. Feast on freshly caught barramundi in the picturesque Daintree village or continue north to Cape Tribulation. Here, where the forest plunges to the reef, you can bushwalk, spot nocturnal wildlife and swoon at Bloomfield Falls
Cairns is an ideal base for exploring and enjoying the many activities of this region in vacation rental accommodations. A myriad of apartment rentals, condo rentals and villa rentals await you where you can experience the thrills and serenity of nature and the satisfaction of a quality family time or the rejuvenation of a quiet retreat for just the two of you.
