Flights To Cairns Beaches

The Great Barrier Reef. Ever heard of it? Cairns is the official gateway to it, and it’s easy to see why. It’s got scenic surroundings, sweet nightlife and more fine dining than you can shake a trekking pole at. Pack up those poles and hop on flights to Cairns to see what’s happening in paradise.

Getting Around Cairns

Cairns Airport is just 6km from the popular Esplanade area in the city centre and even closer to the north side of town. However, taxis from the airport can be pricey; pre-booked shuttles are a cheaper option for getting to Cairns accommodation. If you don’t have tours lined up, book your own wheels with one of Wotif’s sweet car hire deals, roll down those windows and yell “Freeeeedom”!

When You Land…

If you’re landing at the crack of dawn, the park at the southern end of the Esplanade is a great place to grab a flat white and some brekkie while you watch the town wake up.

Ever zip-lined over a crocodile? If you totally want to, book afternoon Cairns flights and head straight to the Wildlife Dome. Fly through the air along with parrots and kookaburras—and make sure your buddies are ready with the camera.

You’d think everyone would be spent from their day of adventure sports, but night owls will be pleasantly surprised. There are bars and clubs all over town where you can continue (or start) the party.

Live Like a Local

Here’s a hint on living like a local: Cairns bills itself as Australia’s bungy jump capital. The 50m-high AJ Hackett Bungy Tower was the world’s first tower built just for bungy. Yes, this town is a true pioneer of the adrenaline rush!

For now, your only rite of passage is finding awesome cheap flights to Cairns right here on Wotif—no bungy required. All you need to do is point and click, then get back to Googling images of the Great Barrier Reef. Soon enough, it’ll all be yours.

Here’s an insider tip: Sunday is typically the cheapest day to fly! Looking at flight demand on Wotif in 2019, we found that flights departing on a Sunday generally had the lowest average price, closely followed by flights on a Monday. You might want to think twice about flying on a Saturday too; generally, our data showed that it had the highest average ticket price.

What is the best day to buy a plane ticket?

Guess what? Boring old Wednesday really is the best day to score the cheapest plane tickets. Looking at flight demand on Wotif in 2019, we found that flights purchased on a Wednesday had the lowest airfares on average. Booking your plane ticket on a Sunday also seems to score pretty good deals. However, airfares purchased on a Saturday generally have a higher than average ticket value, so you might want to prepare your budget if you’re booking on a weekend.

What is the cheapest month to fly?

On the other hand, the December holiday period can be one of the most expensive times to travel, with the highest average ticket price, so it’s best to get in early during peak periods.

How far in advance can you book a flight?

Trying to figure out how early you should book your flight? It’s possible to start comparing international airfares on Wotif up to 12 months in advance. However, it does depend on the carrier as not all airlines release their prices that far out. According to Wotif’s 2019 flight demand trends, last minute planners can still bag a bargain with some of the cheapest airfares appearing 1-3 weeks prior to travel.

How can I save money on flights?

Looking for clever ways to save on your next trip? Try mixing and matching airlines and fare types. Our data tells us, travellers who booked flights on Wotif in 2019 saved close to 55% off their airfare, when their return flights consisted of two different airlines or fare types.
