Australia may seem similar to many other tropical countries, but it’s actually quite different. The places you can find on this continent are either very beautiful or extremely visitor-hostile, so you have to be careful if you want to visit Australia but not go to Sidney or Melbourne.
That’s where Cairns comes in – found on the brink of northern Queensland, this city offers beaches, rainforests, reefs, and many, many more sites you should definitely see.
A Haven In Every Sense Of The Word
Although it’s packed with many stunning locations, Cairns is not quite the most popular destination in Australia. Perhaps that’s why the prices here are so ridiculously low!
Finding cheap accommodation is a pretty task here, as you’ll be able to find anything from 17 AUD dorm rooms to 70 AUD private hotel suites.
As far as food goes, the story doesn’t change much. There are 14 AUD street foods on the table, as well as 27-40 AUD restaurant meals.
For a week’s worth of groceries, you’ll have to spend between 60-100 AUD.
From The Deeps To The Treetops
Cairns is one of the few places in the world that will never let you get bored. From the vast deeps to the amazing sights of jungle life and waterfalls, we can assure you that you will always have something new to do if you decide to visit this tropical town.
For starters, make sure you go scuba diving at the Great Barrier Reef. This diving site is so big that you can actually see it from space, so you can only imagine what types of wonders are waiting for you once you put on that suit and go for a dive.
If you prefer staying dry, we suggest checking out the Daintree Rainforest in the north. As the oldest preserved rainforest on the whole planet, it will provide with a rare glimpse of prehistoric times, as well as witnessing actual wildlife.
