Cairns


Cairns is a city in Queensland, Australia. The city's estimated population was 128,284, as of 2005.

Cairns was originally founded in 1876. The city was named after William Wellington Cairns, who was the Governor of Queensland.

Cairns has a tropical climate and is less than an hour by boat from the Great Barrier Reef. Additionally, less than 80 miles (130 kilometers) to the North, are tropical rainforst areas in Daintree National PArk and Cape Tribulation. As a result, Cairns has become a popular tourist destination, and several small theme parks have been constructed in the area.
