Welcome To The Beautiful City Of Cairns.
The city of Cairns in Tropical North Queensland, was founded in 1876 and named after William Wellington Cairns, Governor of Queensland. It is nestled between a 180 million-year-old rainforest, (the oldest in the world) and the Great Barrier Reef (one of the seven wonders of the world) is 500,000 years young, with geological records indicates that it was formed at least 240 million years ago.
Cairns is a vibrant tropical city with lovely gardens connecting Cairns Central Shopping Centre to the Esplanade’s 5.1km long walking and exercise trail overlooking Trinity Bay and mudflats home to a huge array of wildlife including the world’s most incredible long-distance voyagers, the great knots and sharp-tailed sandpipers which made it all the way from Siberia in the Arctic to Cairns.
At First City Caravilla we have Camping Sites, Caravan Sites, Budget Cabins, Ensuite’s Cabins and Storage and we can accommodate any size van, bus or 5th wheeler.
We built the Caravan Park in 1970 and open the doors to our first guests in February 1971 and the Hughes family still operate The Park to this day, making us the longest locally owned and operated Caravan Park in North Queensland.
We are involved in the Cairns community supporting the Variety Club Bash in 1987 & 1988, sponsoring the Local AFL, Cairns Artistic Skating Cub, Motor Sports and Cairns indoor Cricket in Cairns over the years.
At First City Caravilla we support Rural Fire Services, local business and the Cairns Tourist Industry and this helps keep the revenue locally and in Australia.
