Cairns Airport is around 15 kilometres north of the city. Bounded by swampland it is unusual, though not unheard of, for crocodiles to be spotted sunning themselves on the access road.

Cairns Airport is the largest regional airport in Australia, and is the fifth busiest for international travellers and the sixth busiest overall. Cairns Airport is recognised around the world as the gateway to the world's oldest rainforest and the fabulous Great Barrier Reef.
