Cairns not only provides the infrastructure and refit services to support vessels visiting the region, it is also situated at the gateway to some of the most spectacular cruising grounds and world heritage listed natural wonders.
Immediately at your doorstep are the Great Barrier Reef and the Daintree Rainforest. To the south, the picturesque and pristine Whitsunday Islands beckon and to the north, the unspoiled Kimberley region provides adventure and a voyage of discovery. The South Pacific is dotted with a myriad of islands that each have their own story to tell.
BSE Cairns Slipways recognises that many of the vessels visiting this part of the world, will have come from far and away places and have limited knowledge of the area. For this reason, we have taken the liberty of compiling a services directory and sample cruising itineraries that may be useful to both Captains, Crews and Owners alike.
