Cairns is a tropical city in North Queensland with a colorful background. Only 140 years old, it was first settled by Europeans during the gold rush. Discover this chic town as you get acquainted, on foot, with its landmarks.
Prior to European settlement, the Yirrganydji and the Yidinji Aboriginal people walked this land. Today, it's your turn. Set out on a walk through the city to discover that, despite the fun and upmarket array of cafés and shops, still boasts a touch of the wild, weird, whimsical and wonderful. Your guide will point out the historic buildings, natural sights and special places that complete this tropical paradise.
Step inside at the new Cairns Museum to dig deeper into the tales of this city. Learn about tropical cyclones and discover how a thriving gold rush center-turned-sugar town has successfully morphed into a tourism mecca. The museum houses four permanent exhibits and one temporary gallery, showcasing displays and storylines created by a team of professional curators and designers backed by local volunteers.
