Cairns is a tropical adventure for all with more than a handful of exciting locations to see and holiday things to do, scattered with lush rainforest surroundings and a CBD that doesn’t sleep when it comes to world-class dining, shopping and fantastic local tours.

This spring, make Cairns your holiday playground with our central Cairns accommodation apartments at Koala Court, where each of our affordable options provides a comfortable stay in the Cairns CBD for couples, families and groups with everything needed to feel at home!

Our location drops Cairns Queensland in the palm of your hand, giving you everything from memorable local dining to exploring the Great Barrier Reef. Have your spring getaway with us and ready your excitement for these seven things to do near our fully self-contained Cairns apartments:

Stroll on Cairns Esplanade

Cairns Esplanade is a local hotspot for both locals and tourists with lots to take in from morning till evening! Just a few minutes away from our location at Koala Court, Cairns Esplanade is worth visiting for the view and the laidback atmosphere that comes with it, where numerous boutique shops and cafés are sure to steal your attention.

The flat boardwalk is a joy to wander, offering scenic grassy patches and palm trees with the still ocean at your side. As you head further south, you’ll come across more and more shops, cafés and souvenir stalls, where you’ll eventually reach popular Cairns Esplanade Lagoon.

Swim in Cairns Esplanade Lagoon

At the southern end of Cairns Esplanade, Cairns Esplanade Lagoon is the ultimate swimming attraction in Cairns. A pleasure to look at as it is to swim, Cairns Esplanade Lagoon offers free public pools to enjoy at the ocean’s edge, including a manmade beach, public barbecue facilities and the best panoramic view to enjoy in the Cairns CBD.

Swim, relax on the poolside or just pass by to experience the lively atmosphere. Cairns Esplanade Lagoon isn’t to be missed in Cairns, and it’s also just a short walk from a whole host of leading Cairns restaurants!

Dine at the Best Cairns Restaurants

Cairns won’t disappoint with its world-class dining scene, and come spring, the best way to tuck in is al fresco-style with a serene oceanfront view. You’ll find a handful of al fresco cafés and local eateries on Cairns Esplanade, but if you’re looking to dine in style on your Cairns holiday, look no further than The Pier Cairns.

On the marina and only a few minutes’ walk from Cairns Esplanade Lagoon, The Pier Cairns boasts both a unique shopping experience and a tempting choice of luxury dining experiences. From award-winning Cairns seafood at Tha Fish to premium steakhouse dining at Waterbar & Grill, The Pier offers the highest-level cuisine with an incredible waterfront view.

Visit Cairns Botanic Gardens

Reachable within a quick 5-minute drive from Koala Court Holiday Apartments, Cairns Botanic Gardens on Collins Avenue is a worthwhile experience for nature lovers and tourists looking for the perfect change of pace on a vacant afternoon. 

A natural paradise not far from Cairns city centre, Cairns Botanic Gardens is a sight for sore eyes with almost 40 hectares of lush plant-life, dense tropical paths and beautifully manicured gardens. Explore at your own pace, uncover exotic flora you’ve never seen before and complete your visit at The Botanic Gardens Restaurant & Cafe, which offers morning and afternoon food and drink to enjoy as you take the weight off your feet.

Drive to Cairns Beaches

Spring isn’t spring without a day at the beach, and with our family-friendly Cairns resort accommodation, you’ll be only a 15 to 30-minute drive from the many must-visit beaches that Cairns Tropical North Queensland has to offer!

Reach Holloways Beach Cairns in 15 minutes – a great option if you’re looking for a laidback family atmosphere for sunbathing and swimming. Trinity Beach – a 20-minute drive away – is another popular choice, with tall tropical trees and a rounded beachfront that sets the scene for swimming and water sports. For the most sought-after beach experience, head to Palm Cove Beach: a tourist favourite boasting pristine white sand and a choice of famous beachfront restaurants just 30 minutes from our location.

Head into the Rainforest

The World Heritage-listed rainforest surrounding Kuranda is a must-see location for explorers with more than a few ways to absorb its lush tropical scenery. Kuranda Village in the Rainforest offers an outdoorsy day of rainforest walks, markets, creative activities and the chance to integrate with the aboriginal locals, with another unforgettable experience to enjoy on the Skyrail Rainforest Cableway.

Skyrail Cairns sends you over Barron Gorge National Park, where a breathtaking bird’s-eye view of the rainforest guarantees a sight to remember. The real treat lies at the journey’s midpoint, with beautiful Barron Falls waiting to be seen in all its glory.

Experience the Great Barrier Reef

No Cairns holiday is wrapped up without seeing the Great Barrier Reef! Cairns is the number-one destination for exploring this world-famous natural attraction, which offers an awe-inspiring experience no matter whether you’re snorkelling, deep-diving or staying dry.

Jump on a tour from our location in central Cairns, with just a few recommended coral sightseeing locations being Green Island, Fitzroy Island and Michaelmas Cay. The Great Barrier Reef offers the finishing touches on your spring Cairns getaway that promise to provide memories – and underwater sights – to last a lifetime.
