Not all accommodation in Cairns is resorts and hotels. In fact, you can find some real gems around the region that are not only fun for the whole family but also very affordable for those looking for places to stay in Cairns on a budget.
Located just over an hours drive north of Cairns (near Mossman) Pinnacle Village is an ideal holiday park for those looking to relax and unwind for a family friendly getaway. Close to the world famous Daintree Rainforest and smack bang on Wonga Beach, Pinnacle Village provides a range of accommodation options for visitors to the park, including powered and non powered camping sites, cabins, villas and even railway carriages!
For those looking to relax and take it easy, the park provides a range of activities and facilities, especially for those looking for things to do in Cairns with kids. Sitting on 30 acres, Pinnacle Village includes pools, slides, a games room, live music (during school holidays), miles of beach to explore, BBQ facilities and an abundance of local wildlife (just be mindful of the March flies).
During the day Wonga Beach and its shoreline can be truly breathtaking on a calm day. Be sure to also check out the Barra Farm just around the corner for a bit of barramundi fishing fun.
Feeling a little more adventurous? Due to its close proximity to the Daintree, Mossman and Port Douglas, Pinnacle Village is positioned perfectly to take advantage of some of the best tours in the area. At night it is also recommended to take a few flash lights and take a walk on the beach, where Ghost Crabs are often found scurrying up and down the shoreline.
