Make a holiday villa in Cairns, Australia your home away from home

Cairns is a coastal city in Far North Queensland – it’s one of the top travel destinations in the region, and is regarded as a key gateway to the world-famous Great Barrier Reef. Staying at Cairns self-catering holiday villas you’ll be in a fantastic landscape of rainforest and mountains, with a wealth of water-based activities on offer close by.

Things to do in Cairns, Australia

Cairns holiday accommodation is found in and near a truly world-class adventure sport destination. Both on land and in the water there’s so much for intrepid souls to enjoy here. On foot you could explore the rainforest and upland scenery via some 200 different walking routes. Here you’ll be in an area of immense natural diversity – Lamb Range and Mount Lewis are highly recommended should you want to discover the celebrated wildlife around Cairns. Thrill sports like white water rafting are popular – in fact Cairns is one of the world’s few year-round locations for this sport. For something more relaxed there’s the lagoon, which is really a huge public swimming pool favoured by swimmers and sunbathers in the summer months.

Many visitors to Cairns holiday villas head here for the diving. You can choose between day trips and longer “liveaboard” experiences. There’s a wealth of companies in the area offering both experiences. Many people take the day-trip option as these vessels are able to reach less frequented parts of the reef, where the ecosystem is unaffected by tourism. There are other means of appreciating the beauty of the landscape around Cairns – among the more unusual are ballooning and hang-gliding, while genuine thrill seekers could even try their hands at sky-diving.

Matthew the owner was great! We discovered his toaster didn’t work so sent him a message before

5 of 5
Matthew the owner was great! We discovered his toaster didn’t work so sent him a message before leaving the condo for the day. Upon our return there was a brand new toaster there for us. He has a very simple but clean home. The beds are very comfortable- a must! Excellent location with great local restaurants within walking distance!
