Gilligan’s Resort, Nightclub and Tours

Stay, Play and Party in the best Resort in Cairns!

The Resort

Gilligan’s is the ultimate experience in leisure accommodation located in the heart of Cairns. Recently undergoing a 6.5 million dollar refurbishment we proudly offer guests modern and stylish accommodation, nightly entertainment and a relaxed atmosphere. Gilligan’s is the perfect excuse for crew to lash out while on the land and get out of those bunks beds and into one of Gilligan’s deluxe hotel rooms!

As a Gilligan’s guests you can make use of the Wi-Fi, laze in the massive lagoon pool, relax on a Cabana in the sun, sip cocktails, browse over local produce markets, catch up with friends or party the night away all without leaving this holiday haven. When it’s time to explore further afield, the absolute city centre location means you’re just a few minutes’ walk to Cairns’ waterfront lagoon, Reef Fleet Terminal, shopping centres, galleries, restaurants and café’s or why not book an adventure with out local in-house Travel Agency.

The massive lagoon pool is encompassed by ample day beds and chill out lounges where guests and visitors can simply throw down a towel; soak up the sun, enjoy the tunes and chilled atmosphere and maybe even a cold beverage. By sunset this area transforms into a buzzing social scene offering a wide range of entertainment including local artists and international DJ’s on special events.


Gilligan’s offers a blend of accommodation, including deluxe dorms and hotel rooms. These hotel rooms are fully equipped with the usual creature comforts including tea and coffee making facilities and a refrigerator – perfect for the fresh fruit purchased from Rusty’s Market downstairs. Gilligan’s twin/king/triple hotel rooms are all modern, spacious and perfectly situated on our third and fourth floors, for a peaceful night’s sleep.  Great if you are looking for some long awaited privacy and your own piece of heaven!


Gilligan’s is home to Cairns’ best entertainment! Hosting three amazing venues under one roof. The largest of the 3 entertainment venues, inclusive of dining hall, is located downstairs plus there is the Deck Bar overlooking the beautiful lagoon swimming pool.
