The first local tip to be aware of concerns campervan grounds. In the Cairns area there are lots of places to park your camper and sleep the night. It is not always necessary to pay for a caravan park seeing that as a city we love tourist. You will not be punished for parking in the city or even along the Esplanade where all the action happens. Many campers find themselves parked on the near to the free shower facilities. Plus gas BBQ ovens are free.
So not only will you be able to cook your meals under sheltered areas, you’ll also be able to shower and enjoy a nice stroll in the evenings as the sun goes down by the waterside. Cairns customers seem to flock together, as camper renters park nearby to each other which offers security and you’ll even make a few friends.
Your campervan hire Cairns community will probably BBQ together at the free area. During the day you’ll relax at the Lagoon, swim in the free pool and there is even a little beach where you can lay down a towel to catch your tan or read a good book. On weekends they have a market you can enjoy and on Sundays they have music where bands set up and offer free music.
If hanging out at a real beach is for you then you can stay out at Ellis beach and there are lots of free campervan areas next to the sea where you can park and stay the night.

Those of you staying in Cairns will just love it. We recommend doing a few days up in the Tablelands. Especially if you like food or wine tasting. Drive to Mareeba and get a few bottles of local mango wine and try the dragon fruit liquors which are a dream. As you make your way around you’ll be able to swim in amazing lakes like Lake Eacham and also stay at various camping grounds. The local faces are friendly and truly Aussie.
Without doubt you’ll see the Great Barrier Reef and you can actually do that for about $90.00, which comes to around 73 Euros. Make sure that you take your own lunch or that the tour includes a meal, some of them don’t! Visiting Cape Tribulation is also a MUST SEE.
If you get the chance enjoy a few bush walks then there are several to undertake for the more adventurous.
