Airport Transfer Information

There are a number of ways to get to the hostel from the airport, including Taxi, Uber and shuttle bus. Unfortunately there is no public transport from or to the airport it is located 6km away from the city. 


FNQ Airport Shuttle Bus 

We recommend the FNQ airport shuttle as it is cheaper for travellers and also brings you directly to the hostel door. After booking your stay at dreamtime you will recieve a confirmation email that will give you a $5 discount code to save you money on the transfer from the airport to the hostel. You must book the airport shuttle bus prior to arrival as they do not have a booking desk at the airport, they only have a pick up stop. Check out their website here


Sun Palms Shuttle Bus

Sun palms shuttle bus is another service you can use, which will bring you directly to the hostel door as well. Located at the airport terminal you can book on arrival, however it will be slightly more expense with no discounts. 


Black and White taxi service is the only taxi company in Cairns running 24 hours a day.


If you have the uber app you could also use this newly introduced service to Cairns. 


If you arrive outside reception hours 7.30-1pm    4-8pm  (closed daily between 1pm-4pm and after 8pm), please enter through the side gate 4 Terminus street . Your simple self check-in codes will be sent to you in your booking confirmation. We look forward to seeing you soon at Dreamtime Cairns.
