Tropical Cairns is renowned for its stunning natural scenery and idyllic weather. Whether your heart is set on wandering through the Daintree Rainforest or snorkelling the Great Barrier Reef, you’ll be sure to have an unforgettable trip in Cairns at one of the best RV accommodation in Cairns.

If you’re taking a road trip in a campervan or motorhome, we strongly suggest booking your first night’s powered campsite accommodation in advance. This will save any hassle and stress on the day, as you’ll know where you’re spending the night.  During busy times of year, holiday parks often book out. Plus, freedom camping in Australia is often prohibited.

We’ve found three of the best RV accommodation in Cairns to stay on your first night after picking up your camper from Cairns.
