A neat, cosmopolitan city of shaded plazas and laid-back neighborhoods, Cairns serves as a popular base for exploration of the surrounding region and the Great Barrier Reef, as well as a center for watersport activities like surfing or waterskiing.
Change things up with these side-trips from Cairns: Palm Cove (Hartley's Crocodile Adventures, Spas & Wellness, & more) and Port Douglas (Safaris, Scuba & Snorkeling, & more). There's lots more to do: stroll through Esplanade Boardwalk, have fun at Esplanade Lagoon Pool, do some two-wheel cruising with Trail Bike Adventures, and admire the natural beauty at Munro Martin Parklands.

Take the guesswork out of planning a Cairns vacation by using our trip itinerary maker.

Madrid, Spain to Cairns is an approximately 26-hour flight. You can also do a combination of train and flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 9 hours traveling from Madrid to Cairns.
