Your sustainable itinerary for: Cairns

Eco-tourism doesn’t often include long haul flights, but Cairns is a destination that just might be worth it.


On the edge of North Queensland, Cairns is a sustainable destination in every sense of the word. With the highest number of indigenous tour products than anywhere in Australia and an all-enveloping landscape, here are C&IT’s top itinerary recommendations for a corporate trip.

Where to stay

Shangri-la, the Marina CairnsFor a dose of luxury, there is no better recommendation than the Shangri-la, the Marina Cairns. This hotel is positioned right on the harbour and offers 5-star hospitality from arrival to departure. Boasting breathtaking views of the Coral Sea and Trinity Inlet, this iconic property seamlessly combines opulence with eco-consciousness. Its commitment to sustainability is evident in its waste reduction initiatives and support for local conservation efforts.
