Nightlife Cairns & Northern Beaches

Choose your kind of nightlife

Cairns is the nightlife capital of Tropical North Queensland, from gorgeous sunset dinners on Cairns Harbour Cruises to relaxed cold drinks overlooking the marina from Hemingway’s Brewery. Cairns nightlife really does offer something for everyone. Looking to dress up? The Salt House provides a unique dining experience with panoramic views of the Coral Sea and marina. The Reef Hotel Casino offers dinner shows and gaming, guaranteeing a night full of excitement and entertainment. For those budget conscious travellers, you can party until the sun comes up in one of the many popular backpacker spots like The Woolshed and Gilligan’s.

The Salt House by the Cairns Marina is a great place to enjoy a drink by the water
