Transportation near Centenary Lakes Botanic Gardens

You can walk the central part—from the beach to the train station—but if you want to see a nearby beach, use the Sunbus. It runs from the Trinity Wharf Centre, near the casino, and takes in main city streets. The Sunbus also serves big pubs and entertainment venues at night, and tickets are purchased onboard. Taxis and shuttles are the best bet from the airport to Cairns’ main hotels.
