In and around Cairns

Cairns is a lovely city that depends a lot on tourism. Our Chabad House is in the "suburbs" of cairns called "the northern beaches". The northern beaches are renown for their incredible beaches that are somewhat secluded being that they are not in the main city. They are a lot quieter and often cheaper to stay in than the city. Many more people are opting to stay in the northern beaches rather than the city. There is easy access to the city by the public transport system and car rentals are very reasonable as well. The northern beaches are divided into a few sububs. The main tourist suburbs are Trinity Beach and Palm Cove. Our Chabad House is between the two in a Kewarra Beach. The hotels in Trinity beach are all walking distance to us (20-30 min). There is one resort in Kewarra beach but it is pretty pricy.

Transport to the Chabad House

The 111 bus goes throughout the northern beaches and will take you within two minutes walking distance of our chabad house, located in kewarra beach. It leaves from Cairns Central right in the heart of the city and has stops all along the northern beaches, including the smithfield shopping centre and the trinity beach area.
