Cairns Solar Eclipse


The Cairns Solar Eclipse is going a huge natural event for North Queensland this November with well over 20,000 people looking to converge on Cairns Australia.

The Total Solar Eclipse has not been close to Cairns since 710 AD so as you can image the Cairns Solar Eclipse will one big event that has not been witnessed in this region for a very very long time, and will not be seen again until 2237. So this maybe your only chance to witness this phenomenon.

With the Cairns Solar Eclipse accommodation becoming very scarce, solar eclipse viewing packages will be the best way to see this event. You will be able to choose accommodation in the Cairns region that will also include transfers from your cairns accommodation to your solar eclipse viewing platform, as well as tours to all the great tourist attractions Cairns has to offer. With packages ranging from 5 to 9 nights this will be one of the best ways to see this event and also the Far North of Australia.

Cairns is one hour’s drive south of Port Douglas and has the international and domestic airport in the small tropical city that is Cairns. Cairns is a popular access point to travel to Port Douglas, Tablelands and the Mission beach areas for both tourists, who wish to soak up some sun and relax on the long beaches or take one of the beautiful scenic drives across the Tablelands.

For more information on the Cairns Solar Eclipse and the viewing packages that are available the 2012 Solar Eclipse site will point in the right direction.
