Destination Cairns

World famous for being nestled between the Great Barrier Reef and the ancient Daintree Rainforest, Cairns is a vibrant, cosmopolitan city hub in the heart of Far North Queensland, surrounded by natural beauty.

The central Superyacht Sailfish Quay offers secure berthing, within minutes walk to the city centre, and the International Airport only 10 minutes by uber makes domestic and international travel a breeze.

The year round balmy climate offers festivals, functions, markets, and live music galore every day of the year, and with two National heritage sites on our doorstep, there is no shortage of things to do for guests and crew alike.

Meanwhile, the growing commercial marine sector and government investment has bolstered availability and range of marine services, trades and maintenance solutions, for which we would be happy to discuss needs and offer our recommendations.

For a comprehensive look at all the region has to offer, please check out Cairns & Great Barrier Reef | Tropical North Queensland.

“Recently produced by Superyacht Australia, in partnership with superyachts.com, a series of short documentaries were produced to showcase the vast and incredible destinations on offer when cruising in Australian waters and the world-class service capabilities available to support visiting vessels.”

“Great Reef Adventures’’ Series 1 Episode 2, showcases the cruising and facilities of Cairns, in FNQ.
