BED AND BREAKFASTS
The concept of a 'Bed and Breakfast' is not something new; before the 20th century, it was quite normal for country travellers to spend the night at a private house rather than an inn, and the custom persists in many parts of the world. But many Bed and Breakfast operators in Cairns and Tropical North Queensland have taken the humble B&B and guest house to a new level, with luxury accommodation, superb home prepared cuisine and of course good old-fashioned hospitality.
A great way to spend your vacations feeling you are still at home!
