Welcome to Accessible Cairns.
Cairns Regional Council has established Accessible Cairns and the Access for All directory to assist locals and visitors to our region to be able to plan their trip or access services that are accessible to people with a disability, their family, friends, carers and support workers.
Please take some time to look through this site and use the "Access for All" directory to plan your stay or visit to our wonderful city and surrounding areas.
Check out the news and events.
