Hi, welcome to Cairns city. There are plenty to do here, and a lot of it is within walking distance, for example, the reef terminal for the Great Barrier Reef. Other such as esplanade, a lot of the locals and tourist often walk on the esplanade in the morning or in the afternoon to enjoying the sunset The apartment is about 10 minutes from the Cairns International Airport. Let me know if you have any questions. More than happy to help.
