Accommodation in Cairns and Great Barrier Reef

Whether you prefer an international hotel in the city, a beachside resort or a retreat in the rainforest, Tropical North Queensland has the accommodation to suit.

With more than 7000 accommodation rooms available, visitors are spoilt for choice in Cairns city. There are high-end five star international hotels and luxurious self-contained apartments, family-friendly motels, budget hostels, mid-range hotels, tropical resorts, private homes plus unique B&Bs.

The heart of Cairns offers an excellent range of accommodation choices where dining, tours, shopping and the night life are all a short walk away. On the edge of the city are a variety of apartments and motels, while camping and caravan parks are found in the suburbs.

A similar range of choices are on the Cairns northern beaches with apartments especially popular at family-friendly Trinity Beach and luxury resorts the highlight at Palm Cove.

Accommodation variety abounds in Port Douglas with around 8000 beds in the picturesque seaside village. Luxurious five star resorts, boutique self-contained apartments, family-friendly resorts, opulent private homes, mid-range motels and budget accommodation add to the mix.

Further north in the heart of the Daintree and Cape Tribulation rainforest are peaceful eco-lodges, popular backpacker resorts and rainforest retreats.

The Atherton Tablelands is the place for unique B&Bs, farm stays and country-style hotels. A variety of accommodation from camp grounds to cabins and modern homes are plentiful around the shores of Lake Tinaroo.

B&Bs are also a popular choice to the south of Cairns with most of the accommodation found at Mission Beach where there are luxury resorts, friendly backpacker hostels and a selection of camping and caravan grounds.

Even the islands of the Great Barrier Reef offer diversity with National Parks camp grounds, mid-range resorts and opulent private retreats all easily accessed from Cairns.

In the Gulf Savannah and Cape York Peninsula you can experience the adventure of camping in the bush, relax in a renovated train carriage or luxuriate in an Outback eco resort.
