Transport from Cairns airport to Cairns city

Having recently holidayed in Cairns over the Christmas holidays I got chatting to a local taxi driver. She was talking to us about prices from the airport to the city of Cairns & interestingly enough she was telling us that its approx a $25 cab fare from the airport to the city and Sunbus (local bus company in Cairns) charge approx $7 per person for the same journey but with a few more stops.

Not aware of this service. Cab should be about $20

Sun Palm has shuttle transfers for $10/person.

Good information can be found at the Cairns Airport Website by selecting to/from The Airport tab.

Sorry should include Sun Bus info (cabbie may have confused Sun Bus with Sun Palm and got the price wrong as well)

No airport listed. May be useful for other trips.

Cabbie was confused, Sunbus (public bus service) doesn't pick up at Cairns airport, the nearest point for Sunbus would be a very long walk down airport road to bus stop in Sheridan St.
