About Cairns, Australia

Cairns was founded in 1876 as a port for the inland gold mines of Queensland. It is now the heart of the Tropical North of Queensland, and is one of Australia's most welcoming cities. Stroll, relax, fly a kite, or have a barbecue on the Esplanade, a popular gathering area. Enjoy several great beaches just north of the city. Cairns is also a great place to watch migratory birds.

Paid $15 for a return shuttle into the city and back. Went to the shopping centre and bought stuff... walked through a local market, back on the ship for lunch.

I did the Barrier Reef. I really think that some thought needs to go into this port. There should be options for the Barrier Reef. The tour I took was not well presented in the brochure.
