Welcome to Cairns Beaches Flash Packers Blog

I’m excited to announce that Cairns Beaches Flash Packers is our new family owned and run venture. As an avid fisherman, diver and adventurer, Cairns has been the perfect place for me to call home for more 20 years. I can guarantee that Cairns and the Far North is a wonderful place to live and visit for singles and families alike. 


I have explored this country extensively and can give you local advice on the best places to visit for your adventures. From the tip of Cape York, inland camping at the Inot Hot springs to the reef, I’ve got you covered.


As a family man, I can also give you advice on the best kid friendly adventures and activities. We also welcome families here at Cairns Flashpackers. 

Whether you’re looking for adventure or somewhere to rest and recover from our busy world, Cairns Flashpackers is the perfect place to stop in between adventures or to enjoy the idyll of Palm Cove and all that it has to offer. 

I look forward to welcoming you to our boutique backpackers in the beautiful Palm Cove, where you’ll find a homely, clean, convenient, safe and friendly place to stay.


During this Covid 19 Isolation period, we are busy repairing, painting and getting ready to welcome our guests once travel bans are lifted. At present we have a few Spanish guests who have made the flashpackers their home base and are enthusiastically helping with the repairs and maintenance.
