1. Re: nightlife in cairns

We had a mini family renunion in Cairns late February and the 'olds' like me stayed at the Sofitel and hit the casino, not the largest or most glitzy but friendly staff. My wife did not do so well on the pokies but I had some fun at the tables and covered dinner for everyone so was happy. The younger crew went to troppo Friday night and the nightclub at the Casino on Saturday night, when they eventually surfaced next day they were positive about both but did comment on the number of very drunk european backpackers at troppo. If you want a great dinner splash out at the casino restaurant, Tamarind, great service and fantastic food. Cairns is a haven for young tourists and backpackers so has a vibrant nightlife, it is also a compact city easy to explore in the course of an evening. Like any city you still need to be careful when out clubbing and don't leave you drinks unattended, sorry can't help the parent in me. Have fun!
