A Backpacker’s Travel Guide to Cairns

Cairns is a city in the state of Queensland in Australia. Originally founded in 1876 to serve miners heading for the Hodgkinson River goldfield, it later became a railhead and a major port for exporting sugar cane, gold and other metals, minerals, and agricultural products from the surrounding areas. With a tropical climate, it is a popular tourist destination, and acts as a starting point for those visiting the Great Barrier Reef and Far North Queensland. Cairns benefits greatly from tourism, and it is a major part of the city’s economy and attracts a large number of tourists every year.
