What to know before you fly to Cairns?
Whether you plan to recline on a sunbed at the beach, snorkel the waters around the reef or explore rainforest canopies, Cairns and the surrounding regions have something special to offer. If you’re looking at flights to Cairns, there are few things to note before you go: Cairns seasons can be simplified as either wet or dry, and while wet season is not exactly beach weather, that’s when diving conditions are at their best; the city is very walkable and public transport makes it easy to head further afield; coffee is on par with Australia’s larger, southern cities, which is good news if you appreciate a fine brew.
