Best time to find Cairns holiday deals

The cheapest time to head to Cairns is over winter between June and August, but outside of the winter school holidays. For a dash more sunshine, visit just before April-May or just after September-October.

Flights can go as low as $300 return to Cairns from major cities on budget carriers, or as low as $400 return on full-service airlines.

Booking in advance is always recommended, but how far in advance should you book for the biggest savings? It depends on where you're flying from but generally you should keep an eye out 4-7 weeks before you want to fly, according to Skyscanner.
