I,ll be travelling to Cairns at the end of August. We are spending a week going up and a week coming back and have pretty much planned where to stay.
But i am looking for a place to stay for our 9 days in Cairns.
We are looking for free or cheap within a 25 km radius from Cairns CBD.
We are self sufficient only clean toilets would be nice.
Can anybody suggest some nice places, Along water would be nice.
Thanks

Probably not cheap - but we find the nicest place to stay when in Cairns is Ellis Beach - to the north. It is a caravan park but you are literally 'on the beach'. Stunning scenery. Port Douglas along the beach to the north, Cairns to the south.

One of the most relaxing stays we have had.

I personally prefer to stay at Kuranda caravan park.
Beautifully wooded sites with bandicoots nibbling your toes, and a short walk along the railway line into Kuranda.
You may even be invited for a drink with some brothers under the bridge!
Only a short drive down the hill to Cairns and lots of nice walks, and walk access to the scenic railway station and a walk to the cable car.
Good Sri Lankan restaurant on site.
A bit quirky and different and that is how I like it.

Hi Jorgen and Lis

As the nearest free camp is at Babinda almost 60 kilometres away, the caravan park at Lake Placid on the Barron River just north of Cairns may suit you.

Lake Placid Tourist Park
