Located on the eastern coast of Far North Queensland in Australia is its capital city of Cairns, which is also the most populous city in the state and 14th in the country. Founded in 1876, the city was named after Sir William Wellington Cairns, who served as the Governor of Queensland from 1875 until 1877. Cairns is one of Australia’s most visited cities, primarily because it is the gateway to some of the popular tourist attractions in Queensland. This includes world-class destinations such as the Great Barrier Reef, Daintree Rainforest, Port Douglas and more. 

While most visitors normally use Cairns as an entry point to get to other holiday destinations, the city itself has a number of attractions that are worth stopping by for. Locals and tourists can enjoy the points of interest found in Cairns.

Top Things to Do

Cairns has become one of Australia’s top places for tourism and a base for several attractions in the state of Queensland. While most of the visitors who enter the city usually move to nearby destinations, Cairns itself has a bustling cultural, dining, and nightlife scene and boasts several spots worth exploring.


While Cairns is usually visited for its natural wonders, the city has many nice attractions and cultural institutions. Consider them for a change of scenery or to learn about the city’s history. Here are some of the topnotch museums that you can find in Cairns. 

  • Cairns Museum: Found in the iconic Old School of Arts building, the Cairns Museum is one of the city’s premier institutions. Here, visitors will find an impressive collection of items that depict the history of Cairns and how it developed into what it is today. (Bag policy: Guests aren’t allowed to bring oversized bags or luggage inside the museum. Instead, leave your things with Bounce.)
  • Australian Armour and Artillery Museum: This unique museum is the largest of its kind in the region and is located in Caravonica, just a few kilometers outside the city center. The museum houses a private collection consisting of military equipment and paraphernalia dating back to the 1800s, such as bolt action rifles, combat equipment, and armored vehicles. (Bag policy: Guests of the museum may not bring in large bags or suitcases with them. To avoid any inconvenience, locate a Bounce partner in the area and deposit your things there.
  • Hou Wang Chinese Temple and Museum: Found in Atherton is this one-of-a-kind museum that has been around since the 1800s. Initially built to serve the growing Chinese population in Queensland, this museum is the only one of its kind that still exists to date and features rare Chinese artifacts and symbols. The on-site temple also holds educational exhibits and displays about Chinese culture in the state. (Bag policy: There are size restrictions for allowed bags inside the venue. Before heading out to Atherton, leave your things with a Bounce partner.)


Cairns is one of Queensland’s shopping hotspots and is bursting with options for some retail therapy. Whether you’re looking for luxury items, novelty finds, local goods or a souvenir to remember your trip by, you won’t run out of options on where to shop in the city. 

  • The Pier: Nestled between the International Reef Fleet Terminal and the Cairns Esplanade Lagoon, The Pier is one of Cairns’ most popular lifestyle and entertainment areas. Apart from the excellent waterfront dining, the area is also a well-known shopping mecca and hosts several local and international brands as well as local shops that sell everything from shoes, clothes, jewelry and more. 
  • Cairns Night Markets: An iconic Cairns institution, the Night Markets hosts over 70 stores where you can find some cool souvenirs and mementos. The shops featured change occasionally, but you can expect some rare finds such as glass-blown figures, jewelry, toys, electronics and so much more. If you’re looking for an authentic shopping experience, the Cairns Night Markets is the place to go to.
  • Cairns Central: For a more upscale shopping escapade, the one place you have to visit is Cairns Central. Boasting more than 180 shops and stores, this retail center is the biggest one in Cairns and is home to three major department stores, namely Target, Kmart and Myer. You will also find other well-known Australian and international brands in the area.  


Because of the city’s multicultural background, it’s no surprise why Cairns boasts a diverse dining scene. Look for a memorable culinary experience ranging from Australian cuisine and seafood to international flavors. Here are some of the best dining spots in Cairns.

  • Australian dining: Australian food is a melting pot of various cuisines and highlights local ingredients you probably won’t find anywhere else. For the best Australian dining experience in Cairns, you should check out Ochre. This Cairns institution uses local and native produce and features unique dishes such as salt and native pepper-leaf crocodile and chargrilled kangaroo sirloin. Other places in the city for Australian cuisine are Dundee’s, Perrotta’s at the Gallery, Nu Nu Restaurant, and Noa.
  • Asian food: With its proximity to Asia and the huge Asian population in the city, it only makes sense that Cairns is home to several restaurants that offer various Asian cuisines. One of the most popular Asian spots in the city is the award-winning restaurant Tamarind, which serves Asian fusion dishes such as bestsellers Penang Duck Curry and Organic Tablelands Pork. Other noteworthy Asian joints in Cairns are Ganbaranba (Japanese), Spicy Bite (Indian), Bayleaf Balinese Restaurant (Indonesian) and Iyara by Sakare (Thai).
  • Seafood: With the city being so close to the ocean, Cairns is teeming with restaurants known for serving fresh and delectable seafood dishes. One seafood joint that is beloved by both locals and tourists is Prawn Star, which is known not just for their prawns but other seafood favorites such as oysters, fish and crabs. Some of the other Cairns seafood restaurants worth checking out are Tha Fish, Coco’s Restaurant, Bellocale Italian Seafood Restaurant, The Raw Prawn and Blu Marlin Bistro.
