Cairns is located in Far North Queensland and it’s the perfect place to begin your tropical QLD road trip. In fact, Cairns is often referred to as the “gateway to the Great Barrier Reef”. Soak up the laid-back lifestyle, enjoy the fresh seafood and experience the culture of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities in Cairns.

Hiring a motorhome, campervan or 4WD in Cairns has never been so convenient with our Cheapa Campa branch located less than 4km from Cairns airport and 5km from the city.

Things to do in Cairns

From venturing into the rainforest, snorkelling the Great Barrier Reef and sampling the scrumptious cuisines, there’s no shortage of things to do in and around Cairns. The town of Cairns itself has a lagoon for swimming in, bars, restaurants and lots of friendly locals.

Kuranda Forest

Taking a day trip into the Kuranda rainforest should be pretty high up on your agenda when starting your road trip in Cairns. The town of Kuranda is quintessentially Australian and full of charm. You can catch the Kuranda train or Skyrail into the rainforest which is a major highlight of the experience in itself as you get the opportunity to enjoy the lushious rainforest views.

Snorkel the Great Barrier Reef

The Great Barrier Reef is famous all over the world and is likely one of the first things that people think of when they think of Australia, and with good reason. The Great Barrier Reef is the largest system of coral reef in the world covering more than 340,000 square kilometres. You definitely don’t want to pass up this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to swim amongst this technicolour, underwater world of aquatic life.

Where to Stay in Cairns

If you’re keen to stay nearby after you’ve picked up your motorhome, campervan or 4WD camper in Cairns, we recommend the NRMA Cairns Holiday Park. This will give you the chance to get familiar with your new home on wheels before you head out of town.
