Cruise ships in Cairns are back in action after the pandemic hit the region. Travellers are raring to visit the famous gateway to the Great Barrier Reef. As we are well aware, the COVID19 pandemic prevented backpackers and nomads from doing what they loved. However “revenge travel” has since become a thing and travellers are finally flooding the streets of Cairns again. Weekly, cruise ships travelling the East Coast of Australia are stopping in Cairns which means the city is constantly buzzing with keen foreigners wanting to uncover the magic of the city! 

Cairns is the go-to destination for eager travellers wanting to check out the Great Barrier Reef or the Daintree Rainforest. Although the picturesque landscape is the main reason many travellers visit the region, the city of Cairns is worth visiting. The city not only has waterfalls, rainforest and coral reefs on either side, but is teeming with trendy restaurants, bars, cafes, boutiques, and markets.

If you’re on a cruise ship that is stopping via Cairns, it’s likely you’ve only got the day or a few hours to spare in the vibrant city. Lucky for you, we have got you covered. Have a read through our What To Do In Cairns For A Day article guide to find out how to make the most of your precious time!
