Cairns Colonial Club Resort

The Cairns Colonial Club Resort is a family friendly resort offering affordable accommodations. I liked that the resort was a one stop shop when it came to travel. Free parking, 3 different pools depending on your preference, a restaurant that you could dine in from 6:30 until late and of course happy hour.

Pacific Hotel Cairns

Hotel in Cairns

Located on the Cairns Esplanade overlooking Trinity Harbor, Pacific Hotel Cairns offers guests stunning views from private balconies and provides easy access to the nearby Reef Fleet Terminal,... The very best of location in Cairns, with a short stroll to the casina and restaurants on the boardwalk of the estuary. We just parked up the card and walked to the eateries on The Esplanade, where we used the lagoon. I went fishing one afternoon and meeting over tat the wharf was ideal. When it rained we went to the aquarium for a fascinating view of the reef creatures.
