Useful tips for your trip to Cairns

While you may think summer is the best time to visit Cairns, many disagree. Some argue it's best to go during the transition months between the dry and wet seasons. So, consider April and May or September and October. The climate is agreeable, and the crowds are less busy during peak season. 

  • Diving
    Diving

    There are many opportunities to dive around Australia and Cairns, but the Great Barrier Reef is one of the most appealing. The best time to visit this natural wonder is between May and October, as the water visibility is best and the water temperature is still pleasant.

  • Hiking
    Hiking

    If you are looking to hike up the various trails around Cairns and beyond, the best time to do this is during the Dry Season, which runs from April to October. That is unless you have a lot of experience and skill and want to face a real hiking challenge.

  • Beach holidays
    Beach holidays

    Want to relax on one of the many beaches close to Cairns or dip into the sea? Spring is the ideal time to visit the beaches in Cairns, especially as the crowds are down and the temperatures are increasing. So, if you don’t fancy going at the height of summer, consider September, October or November.

Best campervan driving routes From Cairns

One of the best ways to explore the country when you hire a campervan in Cairns is to try some of the popular driving routes. Below are some of the best.

Savannah Way—Cairns to Broome
Covering around 3,700 km, the route from Cairns to Broome is a challenging and quick drive. The rewards for setting aside time and putting effort into this journey are rich, though you will get a real sense of what authentic outback Australia is like. Along the way, you will find stunning scenery and learn about history, such as the Chillagoe mining site, incredible aboriginal art, and sublime limestone caves. While on the route, stop at or journey through the Undara Volcanic National Park and the Boodjamulla (Lawn Hill Gorge) National Park.

Great Barrier Reef Drive, Cairns to Cape Tribulation Via Port Douglas
Although more officially known as Capt. Cook Highway, when you rent a motorhome in Cairns and want to take in the sensory delights of the two most famous UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Australia, in the Wet Tropics rainforest and the Great Barrier Reef, this is the route to take. There are too many highlights to list here, but some of them include Daintree National Park, Port Douglas, Rex Lookout and Palm Cove. Untouched outback countryside to one side and long stretches of pristine sand beaches at the other, there are various headlands, covers and bays you will want to explore along the way.
Depending on how long you intend to spend on the road, these routes are full of many stops to stretch out the duration of your driving adventure to last as long as you want.

Sites of interest and excursions in Cairns

Great Barrier Reef
The best-known natural site of interest in Australia, the Great Barrier Reef, is the biggest coral reef system in the world and contains more than 2,900 reefs. It covers an incredible 348,700 square kilometres and has a depth range of between 35 and 2000 metres. There are approximately 3000 coral reefs and more than 900 islands.

Daintree National Park
Daintree National Park is part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site Wet Tropics of Queensland and is the oldest surviving rainforest in the world. It is around 130 million years old, millions of years older than the next oldest, the Amazon rainforest. 65% of the country’s butterfly and bat species and 35% of its reptile, marsupial and frog species are found in Daintree National Park

FAQ 
  • You need a full driver’s licence of at least 12 months. However, if it is not in English, you must obtain an International Driving Permit before booking a motorhome rental in Cairns.

  • The price will vary from one company to another and will depend on the type of motorhome or campervan you hire, but you can expect to pay around $60 to $300 for every day of your trip. We recommend using our CamperDays price comparison tool to get the best deals. We work hard to negotiate the best prices for our customers through local rental companies in and around Cairns. 

  • According to Australian law, stopping and sleeping anywhere in Australia is illegal, even when you have a campervan or motorhome. You must look for campervan and motorhome-friendly campgrounds to avoid breaking the law.
