About Cairns Airport

Cairns, a city located in the tropical far North Queensland region of Australia, is a major gateway to one of the world's great natural wonders, the Great Barrier Reef. In fact, this tropical region of Australia is absolutely full of natural wonders, and Cairns International Airport is the gateway to all of them. Receiving international flights from around the world as well as domestic air traffic from across Australia, Cairns Airport is the country's seventh busiest, welcoming around five million passengers every year.

Cairns International Airport is located in the appropriately named suburb of Aeroglen, just seven kilometers from Cairns' Central Business District. That means you can start exploring the city almost from the moment you get off the plane. Offering flights to Singapore as well as various routes covering all of Australia, Cairns Airport is a vital link in the region's transportation infrastructure.

Cairns Airport offers luggage storage facilities in the form of self-serve luggage lockers next to the T2 Car Park Service Kiosk. These luggage lockers have size restrictions, with even the largest only 93 cm high. Plus, you'll need to have exact change to work these coin-operated storage lockers. There is also a baggage storage room that can store large objects up to two meters in length for a few hours, but space here is limited, and you'll need to talk to the Car Park Service Kiosk about storing luggage.

A better alternative to store luggage while in Cairns is to use Bounce luggage storage. Bounce partners with local businesses to provide comprehensive luggage storage services in cities around the world, including in the Cairns region. Our online app lets you book luggage storage from your phone and find luggage storage locations where you can store your luggage for as long as you need. Plus, our many luggage storage options allow you to securely store luggage of any size for as long as you want. Far more useful than the small lockers you find in transportation hubs, Bounce lets you store your belongings at local shops, local hotels, and other store locations so you can explore Cairns easily.

Top attractions near Cairns Airport

Leave the bags behind at a Cairns Airport luggage storage service and take a swim in the beautiful sea or enjoy the sunshine on the sandy beach here.

The Australian Armour And Artillery Museum luggage storage

Just a short distance from Cairns Airport, you'll find this intriguing museum that displays military hardware dating back to the 1800s and up to almost the present day. This is a great place to learn more about the conflicts Australia has been involved in during its relatively short history and a must-visit for any history buff. Leave the bags behind in an affordable Bounce luggage storage before you go, as there is no luggage storage service here.

Skyrail Rainforest Cableway luggage storage

For a thrilling glimpse of the Australian rainforest, take a ride on this gondola which follows a seven-kilometer track over the rainforest outside the city.

Transport options at Cairns Airport

Cairns Airport bus station luggage storage

Cairns Airport is only a few kilometers from the city it serves, so you can get here with a drive of under 10 minutes. Taxis and rideshare apps also provide a convenient way to access the city from the airport. Alternatively, you can take a shuttle bus to the CBD for $20 one way, bookable from the Exemplar Transfer Desk in either domestic or international arrivals. Cairns Airport is also close enough to the city that you can get here by bike after leaving your bags at an affordable luggage storage.

Local tips and insider info

  • Cairns Airport has a well-organized system of ground transportation, whether you choose to use a rental car, a taxi, or a shuttle bus. Legitimate drivers will never approach you for a fare, so if anyone does approach you in the airport offering a transfer to the city, it's best to walk away.
  • A covered walkway connects the Domestic and International terminals at Cairns Airport. Follow the blue line to get from Domestic Arrivals to International Departures and the green line to go the other way.
  • Cairns' tropical climate can be a shock to the system if you've traveled here from somewhere drier. Make sure to stay hydrated with the water fountains throughout the airport, as the high humidity and heat mean you'll lose a lot of moisture here. Also, be prepared for some frizzy hair days.


Cairns Airport provides a gateway to a part of Australia that can often feel like a different world completely. This airport offers a way for people to reach the Great Barrier Reef from Sydney Airport, Melbourne Airport, or even Singapore Airport. And it's also the entry point to a fascinating Australian city. Leave the bags behind in convenient luggage storage services while you explore Queensland.
