Duty Free

Cairns has a good selection of duty free stores for international travellers. Most of these are located in the CBD and at the Airport. The price of duty free goods in Australia is generally considered to represent excellent value particularly with current exchange rates.

The duty free stores stock most of the usual goods that one expects such as cosmetics, alcohol, cigarettes, chocolates and watches. Most of the duty free stores in Cairns also carry large ranges of Australiana souvenirs and products that include items like soft toy koalas and kangaroos, macadamia nuts, books and videos.

Like duty free shops around the world you will need to remember to take in your airline ticket and passport to purchase duty free items at these stores. Duty free stores are exempt from GST (Goods and Services Tax).
