Cairns History Pictures of the Past

The city of Cairns in Far North Queensland has an interesting past that we have found glimpses of in pictorial form. In Cairns History Pictures of the Past, we link to a number of pictures that have captured Cairns built history. Thus these pictures from the past, show the change that has taken place in this pacific tropical city.

Cairns Esplanade

The Cairns Esplanade has a special place in the heart of locals and visitors alike. Cairns history pictures show us how this precinct has evolved during the history of the city. 

Cairns Streets

The streets of Cairns CBD have changed many times over the life of the city. It is interesting to observe this from pictures of the past.

Cairns Aerial

Aerial pictures of Cairns give a unique insight into how the city has changed over many years.

Cairns Buildings

Over the years much of Cairns built heritage has been demolished. Accordingly there has been a loss of everything from old Queenslanders and residential cottages to public buildings. However, Cairns history pics records some of these buildings below.

Other Pictures

Cairns has changed since the pre-colonial time of the traditional owners. These changes are sure to continue, especially in light of the challenges presented by climate change. As a result, Government will make decisions on where to defend against rising sea levels, and where to retreat (leaving coastal areas to the sea). In light of this, it will be interesting to monitor these impacts on coastal cities like Cairns.
