Living in Cairns is an absolute blessing when it comes to discovering new, and beautiful places to take the drone up for a fly. Queensland has some of the most relaxed droning rules in the country, which is a massive bonus if you have a drone and you’re visiting the region. These are 12 of my favourite drone photos of Cairns Australia and the surrounding region so far.

My Droning Gear: I bought a DJI Mavic Pro a few years ago and it has never faulted me, but I’m looking forward to getting a new Mavic Air 2. I recommend a DJI to anyone who’s considering getting their first drone.

Cairns and the surrounding region is such a beautiful place to explore.

You’ll find incredible landscapes, from beaches and reef, to rainforest and waterholes. Only an hour or so from Cairns, you’ll find the Atherton Tablelands where you get completely different scenery to play with.

My Favourite Place To Get Drone Photos of Cairns Australia

Fitzroy Island is my favourite place to take the drone for a fly around Cairns because of the crystal clear turquoise waters, white beaches and incredible variation in textures.

I’m constant looking for new places to take the drone for a fly around Cairns and Far North Queensland, and look forward to keeping you updated with more pics to come!

Let me know in the comments below, which are your favourite photos of Cairns Australia!

Hi, I'm Kate! Mum of 2, and Cairns local for the last 7 years. I love taking photos (although I still have a lot to learn) and taking the drone up to see this beautiful region from a different perspective. I hope to help you have a once-in-a-lifetime experience while visiting the region!
