Whether it's dipping in the fresh waters of Crystal Cascades, meandering through rainforests, exploring the wonders of Fitzroy Island, or simply chilling out in the Cairns Esplanade Swimming Lagoon, this city has a lot to offer for outdoor enthusiasts. Ensure your trip to or from Cairns gets off to a great start by booking your airport transfer on today.

Cairns Airport is seventh busiest airport in Australia for international passengers, serving more than 5 million passengers every year, and is located 7km from the city centre. During the Second World War, the airport was used by the Royal Australian Air Force. Today, it is a base for the Royal Flying Doctor Service of Australia. Book your airport transfer on to avoid airport parking fees and taxi queues, and save yourself the worry of navigating a new city.
