Rydges Esplanade Resort Cairns
Attractions & Activities in Cairns
When you stay Rydges, you stay local, and there’s nothing quite like a truly local experience.
In the mood for a walk? My local tip is to traipse along the Cairns Regional Council’s Arrow Tracks at Mt Whitfield, located 3.6km from the hotel. The Mt Whitfield Conservation Park is a 300ha forested mountain range, and home to rainforest, eucalyptus and grasslands. It’s a good idea to plan out your walk as the Blue and Green Arrows are longer trails and may require return transportation to the hotel.

Known as the gateway to Tropical North Queensland, Cairns is located approximately 1700km north of Brisbane and 2500km north of Sydney. Our Cairns resort has an ideal location looking over the ocean out to the Great Barrier Reef, only a few steps along the Esplanade to the night markets and lagoon.
