Family fun at Pullman Cairns International

The summer school holidays mean playtime for families. They're about sun, fun, unwinding and reconnecting. 

Need some inspiration? Pullman Cairns International is a 24/7 playground for all ages. It's also perfectly located for everything the city and wider Tropical Far North Queensland have to offer. 

If we've piqued your interest, pull up a pew and start imagining the scene.  

At the hotel 

Your holiday starts here – be inspired and dive into the experience. Splash around together or soak up the sun at our palm-lined outdoor pools. The daily kids' activities on the deck will give you time to kick back and relax. 

Coco's Kitchen + Bar has an enticing menu with dishes for everyone. Meanwhile, Pullman's Pool Bar serves up exclusive sips and snacks for parents. Grown-ups can also enjoy pure indulgence at the Via Spa before a suite night's sleep. 

In the city

Step out of our doors and straight into sunny city life – you'll have to hold the kids back. Zip-line through indoor tropics at Cairns Zoom & Wildlife Dome over the road. Cool off at the Esplanade Lagoon Pool or go underwater at Cairns Aquarium. 

Budding Picasso in your brood? Cairns Art Gallery runs holiday classes. Got energy to burn? Head to nearby Figtree Playground and grab a coffee as they play. If older kids need a gaming fix, Timezone is always an (air-conditioned) winner. 

Further out 

If you're after tropical adventures, just take your pick. Explore bamboo gardens and boardwalks at Cairns Botanical Gardens – the kids will love the nature playground. Or enjoy a 25-minute drive into the lush surrounding valleys and freshwater dip at Crystal Cascades. 

Alternatively, watch the reptiles writhe at Hartley's Crocodile Adventures. Or, sail to Green Island for some snorkelling fun. You've also got the Great Barrier Reef, Daintree tours, horse riding, and white water rafting – have we reached your limit?

A summer spent at Pullman is a summer well spent. And at Pullman Cairns International, we've got tropical family fun and relaxation ready-made.
