Frequently Asked Questions

Q:"Which Island is the best?"

A: All the islands are nice..but it really depends on what you expect from an island. Basically there are two type of islands:-

  1. Resort-Style Islands - drinks are served by the pool with deck chairs and drink staff. The only thing you have to do is put your feet up and relax and get a nice tan.
  2. Nature-Style Islands - where there is esentially nothing but the island itself without any buildings in sight for you to take in the natural beauty of the island

Cairns is fortunate to have all of these.



Q: "When is the 'Wet Season'?"

A: The "wet season" in Cairns is from about November to April. During this time you can expect torrential rains for several hours and relatively high humidity. This time is also the "low season" for Cairns and it is a great opportunity to take advantage of the great discounts offered by accommodation houses and tour operators.
