Unfortunately there isn't sufficient demand for bikes in Cairns for a permanent depot, but that doesn't mean you're out of options! Continue reading below to learn more...
Cairns - Bikes and prices
Hold on, something's missing here, where's the list of motorbikes available to rent from Cairns?
Well alluring tropical delights aside, there just isn’t sufficient demand in Cairns for a permanent motorcycle depot I’m afraid. “Why?” I hear you ask. Well, there is some great riding in the local area to be sure but it's highly seasonal, with only three or four months of ideal riding weather outside of the wet season. Riding in the wet season is something to be avoided really as this is Australia, 'wet season' over here means you best bring a snorkel and diving equipment. Hardly ideal motorbiking weather we're sure you'll agree!
This means that most people take a short internal flight to Brisbane or Sydney and ride from there. With so many great looping routes from these cities, a number of which include Cairns, the vast majority of people who rent motorcycles on the east coast of Australia choose to start from either Brisbane or Sydney. It's nothing personal. Cairns is a great city in a fantastic tropical location, it's just not the most practical of rental locations!
An alternative option is a one-way trip. It'd be a great way to venture into tropical Northern Queensland, whilst ensuring that you get maximum enjoyment and riding pleasure from your time in the region. There are some spectacular places to explore.
There are a few things to bear in mind with the one way trips though. They're generally only available for rides over ten days in length and you'll need to select a larger capacity bike, other than those provisos we'd be more than happy to help arrange everything for you.
You can start from many of Australia's main cities and ride to Cairns, or start there and go the other way. The choice is entirely yours! Feel free to contact us for details and we'll be happy to explain the available options.
