It's true, Cairns city wasn't blessed with a sandy beach, just tidal mudflats. The City Council has made up for this with the recent construction of a sparkling man made lagoon on the Cairns esplanade. But if you want a 'real' beach experience, you'll have to head a wee ways north, to the string of peaceful, leafy, beachside suburbs called -not surprisingly- the 'Northern Beaches'. C'mon in, the water's perfect!
The Northern Beaches are pleasant, laid back little villages lined with palm trees and plenty of shaded, grassy areas for picnics and BBQs. The tourism boom in the Cairns region hasn't spoilt the authentic Tropical North Queensland charm of these communities, and although the areas are well served by public transport, with local bus company Sunbus running regular services to and from the centre of Cairns, the Northern Beaches are largely overlooked by the masses. In fact, you can still often find a stretch of beach completely to yourself, especially during the week, when many of the residents are at work.

The Northern Beaches have always been a popular getaway for Cairns locals, but in recent years the has area seen the development of a range of tourist accommodation and restaurants, particularly popular with families on vacation. The communities that make up the Cairns Northern Beaches are: Machan's Beach, Holloway's Beach, Yorkey's Knob, Trinity Beach, Kewarra Beach, Clifton Beach, Palm Cove and Ellis Beach.

Swimmers at the Northern Beaches of Holloway's Beach, Yorkey's Knob, Trinity Beach, Kewarra Beach, Clifton Beach, Palm Cove and Ellis Beach can swim in stinger resistant enclosures during the summer 'stinger season'The Cairns City Council installs stinger resistant nets at Trinity Beach during the 'stinger season'. Swim only in netted areas, and for more information about marine stingers, please visit our SAFE TRAVEL page.


Beautiful view of sandy white Trinity Beach. Trinity Beach is an award winning beach and a quiet, tropical village community. Popular with locals, Trinity Beach has, just in the last few years, become something of a bustling tourist mecca, with beachfront holiday homes, cafes and hotels. Trinity Beach has a long esplanade, and in summer the palm fringed beach can be more crowded than some of the other nearby beaches, but the atmosphere is still of a relaxed and pleasant seaside village. You'll find a great choice of accommodation possibilities as well as shops and restaurants, most of them located along the esplanade.

Trinity Beach is well serviced, with fantastic beachfront restaurants, bars, a supermarket, car and bike rental, a bottle shop, newspaper agency, post office, doctors, etc.

Tourists and locals can enjoy a wide variety of different sports and activites throughout the year. Whether it is diving, snorkelling, windsurfing, waveskis, boogie boards, sailing or beach volleyball, there is something for everybody, including safe swimming all year round. Even if you like golf, tennis or squash, Trinity Beach has it.

In 2003 and 2004, Trinity Beach was voted North Queensland's Cleanest Beach. Besides that, it won the 2004 Keep Australia Beautiful Clean Beach Challenge. See for yourself, and you will understand why.
