Where to stay?

by cvilla


I am visiting Cairns the end of february. I was wondering where to stay, in cairns, northern beaches, or port douglas? We are staying for 3 days. Also is cairns and snorkeling the great barrier reef affected by the recent floods? If so, do you think it will resolve by the end of february?

Thanks so much!

Port Douglas could be the shot. We stayed in Cairns the last couple of times but did not go out on the water.

Just check back later as tropicrd lives there and will no doubt answer in the morn...or check out the pages...she is a local. Put tropicrd in search box...scroll to members and you are almost there.

I recommend Port Douglas.

It is only an hour drive north of Cairns.

Port Douglas has fantastic beaches, a wonderful non commercial (compared to Cairns) atmosphere, and is closest to the Barrier Reef.The reef should not be affected either.
There is a wide variety of accommodation available to suit all budgets.
As far as I am aware- Port Douglas was not affected by recent floods, however- it is cyclone season for Queensland, so bear that in mind.

Check out the Port Douglas VT Travel Guide (the search box is in blue strip atop of page)

Hello and welcome,
Cairns has not been affected by the floods but we do have a serious situation regarding two cyclones off the coast as I am writing this reply--so,no one really knows if Cairns and the Far North will get the heavy rain associated with these cyclones.
Both Cairns and Port Douglas offer tours to the reef during this time of the year and both places have pros and cons regarding all types of acommodation depends on your budget,some hotels offer specials during these months.You are welcome to look up my pages on Cairns where there are some links.
One thing to consider,if we do get flooded most of the roads North and South of Cairns are usually cut off so you could possibly find yourself stranded-- even though Port Douglas is only an hours drive---the Cook Highway is known to flood along with the creeks and the Barron River.The airport is usually not cut off because it is on the city side of the river.
Many tourists come to Cairns and areas in the wet season to enjoy the waterfalls in full flow and the different flora and fauna during the wet.
Whatever you decide,I am sure you will have a great experience.If you need to know more as time draws near please contact me.

Hi. Bramstom Beach has not been affected by the flooding. What kind of vacation are you planning and budget? If it's a romantic get away or a family trip I suggest checking out this botique beach house:

You can also check other houses in Stayz but this one is the nicest.

Cairns and Port Douglas have fairly well escaped damage in the recent cyclone. Port Douglas would be the place to be if you are happy with a quieter, slower pace. The beach might not be at it's best after the cyclone but it's a beautiful area and the reef is closer to Port Douglas than Cairns.
There is a big range of accommodation from backpackers to average holiday apartments to very expensive apartments and luxury houses. It all depends on what you're prepared to spend and what sort of holiday you're after.

Travel Tips for Cairns

Day trips for everything

by DSwede

Cairns is the gateway to the northern areas of the tropical rain forests and the Great Barrier Reef.

There is not much to do in the city itself, besides a few random small museums. But there are ample quantities of hotels and restaurants. Most people stay in Cairns only to venture out on day trips. Among them, to places like Kuranda, Port Douglas, Cape Tribulation, Daintree, Mossman or diving in the Great Barrier Reef.

Port Douglas offers a smaller and quieter place to base your trip from, as well as shortening your commute by about an hour on most day trips. That being said too, Cairns has no beach in the city while Port Douglas has a beach nearly 5km long only 5 minutes walk away.

Mossman Gorge

by bijo69

Mossman Gorge is a lovely place about one hour North of Cairns. The gorge is part of the Daintree Nationalpark is a great place for a nice walk and to cool off in one of the swimming holes.
Shouldn't you have your own vehicle, most tours to Cape Tribulation do stop here.

Cairns Buses

by aussirose

I was very impressed with Cairns buses. They are very neat and clean and new....air con is a bit cold ;o) and the price average.

We went for a day to Trinity Beach by bus and has no problem finding the right one - Stand F. Directions are clearly marked and if in doubt, just ask one of the friendly bus drivers.

Botanic Gardens Cafe

by sue_stone about Botanic Gardens Cafe

Located in the suburb of Edgehill are the Flecker Botanic Gardens. Admission is free to the gardens, and during a visit you may happen across the Botanic Gardens Restaurant/Café. It is open daily from 8.30am–4.30pm, and is a handy place for a snack or light meal.

The Botanic Gardens are located very close to Cairns airport, and therefore were a handy place to visit for a few hours before flying to Sydney. After a quick wander through part of the gardens we headed to the café for lunch. It is hidden away amongst some tall plants, but there are signs to guide you to it. The cafe has a very relaxed feel, with laid-back service. The menu consists mainly of salads and open grilled sandwiches, though there is a specials board with some hot meals as well.

We ordered a couple of different 'Open Focaccia Grills', though they weren't really on focaccia, and the serving was quite small for the cost. Oh well, the food tasted ok, and filled the gap.

Panoramic Peter Lik!

by Custodyspice

There are some really awesome panoramic photographs of Australia in the Peter Lik Gallery in Cairns. Really colourful pics of the rainforest, the islands, Ayers Rock. The originals are a 'touch' out of my price range but you can buy poster prints which are alot cheaper, about £25.00. He has a website and they pay the freight costs and insurance. This is how I got mine, which now adorn my living room walls!
