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.
