Take Your Motorhome through Cairns’ History

Your hired motorhome in Cairns will take you through a beautiful city and you’ll be able to enjoy the modern activities that the city has to offer. Cairns has a great history though, and you may be interested to learn a little about it.

In 1770, James Cook first mapped the future site that is Cairns today, initially naming it Trinity Bay. During the gold rush in 1876, Cairns was founded, due to the need for exporting gold discovered on the tablelands to the west of the inlet. Not longer after the end of the gold rush, the success of local agriculture helped Cairns to establish itself as a port, and in 1906 the harbour board was created.

Interestingly, during World War II, the Allied Forces used Cairnsas a staging base for operations in the Pacific, with US Army Air Force and Royal Australian Air Force operational bases.

The opening of the Cairns International Airport in 1984 helped establish the city as a desirable destination for international tourism.
