Wotif has once again crunched the numbers to come up with a stellar shortlist for the fourth annual Wotif Aussie Town of the Year Awards! This year, the winning town is back in Queensland, with beautiful Cairns taking out the top spot.

What could be better than visiting the gateway to one World Heritage site? Visiting a spot that’s on the doorstep of two, of course! That’s just one of the reasons Cairns nabbed the top spot. Spend some time exploring the Great Barrier Reef as well as the world’s oldest rainforest and you’ll ask yourself why you haven’t visited this stunning part of Australia sooner.
