How to Get Cheap Hotels in Cairns and Last Minute Hotel Deals

Getting the perfect hotel at a great price is something we all strive for. As with all travel, you’re likely to find a good price on a hotel in Cairns if you book far enough in advance, but a lot of hotels also offer great last minute deals in Cairns. When there are beds left to fill, prices are often cut to attract last-minute deal hunters and spontaneous travellers who have the freedom and ability to visit Cairns at the last-minute. You might not get your first choice of hotels in Cairns, but you are likely to get more for your money. We don’t recommend you wait until the last-minute during peak seasons and when there are events taking place in Cairns though, as it is likely that accommodation will fill up early – and you don’t want to be left without a bed!

When visiting Cairns, there is plenty to explore – and finding a hotel near the main attractions will make this even easier. We recommend checking out hotels near Reef Fleet Terminal, Cairns Marina and Marlin Wharf, or using our map feature to find hotels near your specific points of interest.

On the flipside, you might not want to exclude hotels in Cairns altogether – you could get a great deal and enjoy a visit with a little more luxury!

It's my home town and I love it! The lifestyle is so relaxed, the weather so good, I dont know why I ever left.

Cairns town itself is a quiet, made for tourist adventure town. You can relax at beaches close by, do all the adventures on the reef, or go to the rainforest part, so there are lots to do for everyone.

A wonderful town on the coast with so many different activities that shouldn't be missed. Whether a backpacker or luxe traveler, there is something for everyone. This was my favorite place along the coast to see the reef.

Located in Queensland, Cairns is known as the tourist capital of northern Australia, primarily due to its location near the Great Barrier Reef & the Wet Tropics rainforest. It is also a good starting point for a trip to the Outback & is a busy cruise port. Although many boat excursions for the adventurous are available here, we enjoyed exploring the city on foot. This is a tropical climate, so wear your sunscreen.
