Our location and surrounding attractions
Bay Village Tropical Retreat is located in the heart of Cairns. Just one block (3 minute’s walk) from the popular Cairns Esplanade Waterfront and only 900 metres (15 minute’s walk) to the city centre.
Cairns is famously the gateway to the Great Barrier Reef and is an ideal base to explore Tropical North Queensland. You will see the stunning World Heritage Rainforest and coral reefs, extraordinary tropical scenery and experience a truly south pacific lifestyle.
Discover the historic rail journey to Kuranda in the mountains, ride the world’s longest cable car – the Skyrail – above the rainforest, take a boat trip to the Great Barrier Reef, learn to snorkel or dive or see the spectacular underwater world from a glass-bottom boat.
Day tours to most part of the region leave daily and include transfers from Bay Village Tropical Retreat. Above all, don’t forget your camera or your sun protection!
The Great Barrier Reef and Daintree Rainforest
One of the unique features of Cairns is its close proximity to the World Heritage listed wet tropics rainforest and Great Barrier Reef, one of the natural wonders of the world. Cradled between the majestic rainforest and the stunning Reef, Tropical North Queensland is the only destination where two World Heritage listed areas unite. There is definitely plenty to imagine and experience.
