Cairns Holiday Apartments

Cairns holiday apartments are great places to stay.

They are most often somewhere central, in large highriser buildings, and with nice large balconies with good views.

They are self contained and often have full kitchens with everything you need
, and they have at least one bedroom, but often more.

They are not cheap, but if you share the price with more people, like a two bedroom apartment with another couple, the price actually works out quite good.

Most of the ones below are on the Esplanade, or the streets right behind it, with a short stroll to everywhere in the city centre.
