Cairns is known as the backpacker capital of the country, and the joy of exploring real scenic beauty lies in the Cairns Downtown region, only 2.3 miles from the Cairns Airport. The airport features car hire in Cairns Downtown facilities. Among the main attractions of the place are the amazing beaches. Trinity Beach features opportunities for swimming, wind surfing and tempting seafood. Close by is Palm Cove, with less food options but offers quite and serene surroundings. Ellis Beach however is one of the most tranquil getaways - long stretches of the beach land to explore. While you can avail bus service to travel around, the immediate attractions including the Cairns Central shopping mall, as well as drivable beaches nearby necessitate a car hire in Cairns Downtown to easily navigate the area.
