The 3 Best Hotels for Families in Cairns

1. Riley

Riley Hotel in Cairns, Australia
Hotel Phone: +61 (0)7 4252 7777
This vast and chic tropical resort is quietly on the edge of downtown facing the sea. Among the rooms and suites in whitewashed buildings and the sparkling-new glass tower easily seen across the bay is a lagoon-style pool with sandy edges and a shallow section for children. All rooms can accommodate three people, while the Suites are suitable for four. Best are the two-bedroom Riley’s Suites which can fit six. The hotel is just over the road from a cycling/walking path and the extensive and shady Muddy’s Playground.

2. Pullman Reef Hotel Casino

Pullman Reef Hotel Casino in Cairns, Australia
Hotel Phone: +61 (0)7 4030 8888
There is so much to love about this convenient, quiet, and luxurious hotel most renowned for its casino. Families would appreciate the sizeable rooms and suites, most with space for an extra single bed and many with connecting doors. The pool and gym are large and, most remarkably, within the massive roof are Cairns ZOOM (for zip-lining) and the Wildlife Dome, packed with Australian wildlife. The Pullman is also within a brief stroll of a shady park with an adventure playground, the amazing public swimming lagoon, and the terminal for boat trips.

3. Hilton

Hilton Hotel in Cairns, Australia
Hotel Phone: +61 (0)7 4050 2000
So convenient to Cairns’ numerous attractions and amenities, the Hilton provides a spacious and serene position facing the water and an extended cycling path. Also located only meters from a park with an adventure playground and the terminal for boat trips around the majestic reef, everything is as expected of a Hilton, including a shady pool better than at most rivals. Most rooms can squeeze in an extra single bed, while many have two double beds suitable for three or four people. Otherwise, book a room with connecting doors.
