The Cairns Webcam is located on the Pacific Hotel Cairns overlooking Cairns esplanade and City Centre.
The best viewing time is from 3 - 7pm as the Great Barrier Reef Day tours return and the sun sets behind the camera.
The camera is perched on the corner of the Pacific International Hotel and has a 270 degree view of Cairns. It pans, pivots and zooms to take in views of the city.
Views change every 30 - 60 seconds. The entire tour takes around 40 minutes to complete.
The Cairns Webcam has a great view of the cruise ships as they enter and depart Trinity Inlet. If you look to the horizon you will see Green Island when the camera is pointed to the Coral Sea & Great Barrier Reef.
