Cairns City Backpackers is only a 10min walk to the city centre.
We provide a 24 hour check-in service but you need to let us know in advance if you are going to arrive outside of reception hours so we can organize your key. Our reception is open from 7:30 am till noon, and between 4:30 pm and 8 pm. If you are arriving before 7.30 am, then you will need to pay for the night before if you want to go to your room straight away, otherwise you will need to wait until 7.30 am or checkout time.

A taxi will cost you about $22 from the airport and $10 from the bus terminals.
If you wish to walk from the bus terminals we are a 15 minute walk from the premier bus terminal and a 30 minute walk from the greyhound terminal (walk straight down Spence street, turn right into Draper street and follow until you find our hostel.)
If you are coming in your own car we can be found at 274 Draper Street directly behind Cairns Central shopping centre.
