Cairns and the surrounding region is a tropical paradise with thick rainforest clearing in places to tropical fruit plantations. All these can be visited if you collect a pre-booked hire car from Cairns Airport.

Why do People Visit Cairns?
Cairns is a very popular holiday destination because of its tropical climate and the verdant rainforest that surrounds the city. If you’re prepared to travel a little you’ll find fabulous beaches and if snorkelling or diving are your interests then the Great Barrier Reef is easily accessed from the city. There’s also a lot to see if you venture inland to where the tropical rainforests meet the desert on the edge of the outback. Mareeba is the best place to visit to see the transformation.

The airport has two terminals, one for domestic and the other for international flights. The domestic terminal has five airbridges to allow you to embark and disembark without getting wet in a tropical storm or hot and sweaty in the dry season. Flights arrive at the domestic terminal from all the major north, east and south coast cities as well as many other cities and towns within the state. The domestic terminal has a wide range of facilities including a beauty salon. There are dozens of shops and cafes including a chocolatier, an Australian produce store and several gifts and clothing stores.
