The main centre of Far North Queensland, Cairns offers a buzzing city atmosphere surrounded by tropical rainforests in the Daintree, the Atherton Tableland and of course the Great Barrier Reef. This small city is packed full of options including black-marlin fishing, reef cruises from Trinity Wharf, Tropical Botanic Gardens, museums, rainforest walks and even a Skyrail Rainforest cableway in nearby Kuranda.

The Britz Cairns branch is located on the Bruce Highway, mid-way between Cairns itself and the airport, roughly 4km either way.

Fuel prices in Australia do fluctuate depending up location, especially in the country. You will notice that prices change during the week and around popular holiday time such as Christmas and the Easter break.

Expect to pay more for fuel in remote locations. If you plan to travel in remote areas it is advisable to keep you fuel tanks topped up as frequently as is possible (the same principle applies to water supplies as well especially in remote areas).
