For a real home away from home, you'll love Cairns' range of tropical style holiday homes. With plenty of space to move, this is the ideal choice for a large family. Or perhaps you're relocating. Why sacrifice the comforts of home while you're finding your new home in Tropical North Queensland?
For longer stays, or for family groups, the extra space of a Cairns holiday apartment can make a big difference to your comfort level. An apartment can allow for a level of homely relaxation not possible in a regular hotel or motel. From budget holiday units to spacious, luxury apartments, Cairns has it all.
A Bed and Breakfast can offer warmth and homeliness that traditional hotels simply can't match. At most B&Bs, you will be treated not just as a customer, but as a genuine 'guest'. If you're from interstate or overseas, a B&B or farmstay can be a unique way to sample 'real life' in our tropical paradise.
Cairns is a budget travellers' Mecca, boasting almost thirty backpackers hostels within walking distance of the city centre. Due to the fierce competition, hostels in Cairns are of an extremely high standard, but if you want to see which hostel suits you, we have compared them all side by side.
Gone are the days when a caravan park was just a dusty allotment with a toilet block and cold showers. Today's traveller has discerning tastes, and it is evident in the quality of the region's holiday parks and campgrounds... some of them more like luxury resorts at budget prices.
If you're staying in Cairns a little longer than most holiday makers - maybe you're studying here, or on a Working Holiday Visa - the most convenient and affordable accommodation for you may be one of these share houses, centrally located and with all the comforts of home.
