Why have your Hens in Cairns
Boasting both luxury resorts and a colourful backpacker bar scene, Cairns offers the best of both worlds for an exciting hens party experience. You’ll feel like you’re a world away from any wedding worries as you relax into the slower pace of life in the tropics. Here you can sip coconuts fresh from the tree and pick mangoes in the wild, while relaxed dress codes mean you’re always ready to head straight from the beach to the nearest bar.
As the gateway to the Daintree Rainforest and the Great Barrier Reef, Cairns is surrounded by idyllic tropical islands and sand cays within a short boat ride of the wharf. Venture into the mountains to discover the ancient rainforests of the Wet Tropics and stunning waterfalls, or spot iconic wildlife living in its natural habitat like the prehistoric Southern Cassowary, the brilliant blue Ulysses Butterfly and of course - crocodiles!
Top Tips and Ideas
After exploring everything Cairns has to offer (ask your House of Hens Party Planner for their top tips), venture to the Northern Beaches to discover the seaside suburbs of Palm Cove, Trinity Beach and Yorkeys Knob, where you’ll find restaurants, bars, cafes and million dollar views.
Further north lies the popular seaside village of Port Douglas. Hire a car to explore the stunning scenic drive from Cairns, and keep an eye out for the stacked stone structures (ironically known as ‘cairns’) just after Ellis Beach.
Beyond Port Douglas you’ll find Mossman, home to untouched rainforests and the Mossman Gorge, while a short vehicle ferry ride over the Daintree River will take you to Cape Tribulation, and a scene reminiscent of Jurassic Park.
