The airport is growing in popularity and traffic volumes year on year, yet it retains an unhurried atmosphere and procedures such as check in, customs and baggage collection are dealt with extremely efficiently by the well-trained and incredibly helpful airport staff.

The airport also offers a wide range of dining and shopping outlets, along with well-kept public facilities and free wi-fi access.

Not as busy as other Australian cities, traffic levels only tend to increase during peak-traffic hours. Providing that you avoid the city centre at these times, you should avoid most of the traffic congestion throughout your stay.

Cairns also boasts an excellent and extremely good value for money public transport system and you would be advised to use this in order to visit the local attractions.

Car parks are generally provided at an affordable rate, and many are securely guarded at all times, giving you additional peace of mind if you decide to use the bus to navigate to the attractions.
