Thick, luxuriant, tropical vegetation is starkly contrasted against the celestial blue of the Coral Sea, home of the World Heritage listed Great Barrier Reef. Cairns is a small, modern city, a short ten minute drive from its busy International Airport. Whether you are relaxing by a pool, strolling along the coastal boardwalk under the swaying palm trees or simply stretched out on one of the many sandy beaches to the north of the city, this is a fun and friendly place to base yourself in FNQ. The magnificent swimming pool right in the centre of Cairns. This four star hotel was very comfortable, conveniently located and the room rates were more than reasonable. On other visits we have stayed at the Hilton Cairns opposite the Pullman Reef Casino and this was also a great place to rest and relax on the waterfront in the heart of this beautiful city.

Ho hum. Except when the sun seeker has had a mastectomy. Funny that. It is so sad that this point is still an issue in OZ. We looks like over moralized by few freaks or religious fundamentalist!!
Facing the ocean, to your right towards Cairns at the southern end of the beach is an outcrop of rock in the sand. From this point is the unofficial nude beach. Its been a nude beach for many years and is mostly tolerated although there has been occasional police patrol, but they are looking for problems and not nudists. Mixed crowd, but probably more gay guys than anything. Trees along sand give protection from too much sun.
