Property Details

Gilligan's is the ultimate experience in accommodation and entertainment set in the heart of Cairns. Offering guests stylish backpacker accommodation, nightly entertainment and a relaxed atmosphere whilst soaking up the sun, why choose to stay anywhere else?

All room types are fully equipped with a full en-suite bathroom, air-conditioning and four floors of communal areas. Or perhaps try our deluxe dormitories; designed to offer that little bit extra. Available in 4 and 6 bed configurations, these rooms offer TVs, refrigerators and all have a private balcony to kick back and relax after a long day at the reef, rainforest or even a lazy day by our pool.

As a Gilligan's guest you receive the below benefits:

* Evening meals for just $5.00 each night

* Free airport pickup (8am - 8pm)

* Free linen

* Free car parking

* Free crockery use in kitchens

* VIP prices for in house guests

* Half price to our international DJ events

...and of course full use of all the below facilities:

* Lagoon Pool with Waterfall

* Pool Tables

* TV and Chill Out Areas

* Tour Desk and Travel Information

* Job Club

It doesn't end there...our outdoor lagoon pool is encompassed by a beer deck which during the day offers chilled music, beach volleyball, or a chance for guests to simply throw down a towel, soak up the sun and enjoy the atmosphere and maybe even a cold beverage. By sunset this area transforms into an exhilarating night offering a wide range of entertainment evenings from open mic, dive in movies through to our weekends where national and international DJ acts are flown in for that added extra only Gilligan's can provide.
