Cairns is a major city on the east coast of Far North Queensland in Australia. The city is the 5th most populous in Queensland and 14th overall in Australia. Cairns was founded in 1876 and named after William Wellington Cairns, Governor of Queensland from 1875-1877. It was formed to serve miners heading for the Hodgkinson River goldfield, but declined when an easier route was discovered from Port Douglas. It later developed into a railhead and major port for exporting sugar cane, gold and other metals, minerals and agricultural products from surrounding coastal areas and the Atherton Tableland region. The estimated residential population of the Cairns urban area in 2015 was 147,993. Based on 2015 data, the associated local government area has experienced an average annual growth rate of 2.3% over the last 10 years.

Cairns is a large city in far north Queensland and a very popular holiday destination - warm weather all year. There are numerous accommodation options from backpacker hotels, camping grounds, apartment and 5-star resorts.

The foreshore of Cairns now houses a large swimming pool and recreation area for visitors - plenty of shade and seating within walking distance to the shops and cafes. There are two Visitor Information Centres in the CBD area and these are great for booking tours to the Great Barrier Reef and Daintree Rainforest plus providing advice on accommodation and travel in the region.

A very busy city with lots of shopping and restaurants.
