At Cairns Unlimited, we understand that travelling with disabilities presents extra challenges. The planning process requires much more careful attention to detail, and we aim to make this as simple and cost effective as possible. We don't believe that your Tropical North Queensland holiday should have to be an expensive luxury, disabilities or not. We know you'll have a wheelie great time! *groan*

Anecdotal evidence indicates that Australia is generally quite 'disability friendly', moreso than for example the US or Britain. Although some of the wilderness areas of Far North Queensland may prove challenging for someone with limited mobility, Cairns itself is a modern, cosmopolitan city with all the disabled-friendly facilities one would expect.

You may be pleasantly surprised by the great number of opportunities that await you in Tropical North Queensland. At Cairns Unlimited, you can browse a range of 'accessible' accommodation, and check out tours that cater to people with disabilities. And if you thought the Great Barrier Reef was off limits just because you have disabilities, think again!


Australia also has in place some quite strict regulations that businesses must meet in order to be able to advertise as 'disability-friendly'. However, everyone's access requirements are different, and Cairns Unlimited highly recommends contacting all accommodation facilities prior to booking to ensure they meet your specific requirements.
