It’s a great place to stay if you love to party! The party at Gilligans is insane and never stops. So much fun! I’ll be back.

Party all time if you like it stay in this hostel! There are 2 cool clubs. I loved them! The pool is also nice. And a lot of other restaurants and bars are not fare away!


Cairns, considered the gateway to Australia's Great Barrier Reef, is a city in tropical Far North Queensland. Its Tjapukai Aboriginal Cultural Park tells the stories of indigenous Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people with music and dance. Cairns Esplanade, lined with bars and restaurants, has a swimming lagoon. Northwest of the city, Daintree National Park spans mountainous rainforest, gorges and beaches. Cairns Wildlife Dome is an enclosed zoo offering koala and crocodile encounters, while the Cairns Night Zoo house kangaroos and wallabies. The Kuranda Scenic Railway winds up and along forested hillside tracks carved out by early settlers, while the Skyrail Rainforest Cableway provides ocean views above the rainforest canopy. Both terminate in the mountain village of Kuranda, known for Aboriginal art galleries and markets selling clothing and souvenirs. Bungee jumping, fishing and whitewater rafting are popular outdoor activities.
