When you’re living in Cairns, you are most probably going to have to deal with peak hour traffic. Some days are good, some are absolutely terrible. Generally if you live in Cairns on the Northern beaches you are going to have to drive through a few bottlenecks.
Here’s some footage of what it’s like driving in Cairns coming from the Northern beaches. This footage starts from once you pass the airport, so you’re pretty much at the edge of town and heading into the heart of the city. This was a Tuesday morning at 8.30 am. This day was actually pretty good, however there can be days when your trip time can be almost doubled.
