Airport transfers

Can anyone advise if there is a local bus from the airport to City of Cairns. If not can you advise the cost of a taxis? I am on a tight budget and the place I'm staying at does not offer tranfers.

The airport is practically in the city - a very short distance. You can quite easily hitch it, if you're on very tight budget. You could even walk it, if you can stand the heat!

Yes there is a 'local' type bus and it's cheap, about $8.00 I think, with due respect to the previous post I would not recommend hitching on the airport access road. A taxi to Cairns CBD is around $15 but depends a bit on what time you arrive, slightly higher cost at night. If you want to check I am sure Cairns Airport has a website, a yahoo.com.au search would reveal.
