Language School Cairns — Eurocentres: Learn English in a tropical paradise with city-feeling
There are many natural wonders in the world that can render you speechless. The Great Barrier Reef on the north-east coast of Australia is one of them. It is a place of natural pilgrimage for divers and tourists from across the world, which is why the nearby city of Cairns has become the diving capital of Australia.
The city in the north of the Australian state of Queensland also has a lot to offer outside of the reef landscape – for example, as a destination for a sun-kissed language course with Eurocentres. Whether it be in the colourful and biodiverse ocean of the south Pacific or the depths of the English language, dive with Eurocentres into the treasure of this Australian goldmine.
Well-being for body and mind – What to see and how to get there
Sightseeing in Cairns
Cairns was founded long ago as a shipping port for gold and minerals. Today, the biggest treasure is just over an hour off the coast by speed boat. The Great Barrier Reef is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is referred to as one of the Seven Wonders of the World. With unparalleled biodiversity and sensational coral reefs, it is popular with divers from all over the world, even beginners. Numerous diving schools and training centres in Cairns will train you to dive. Sightseeing flights are also on offer and help you take in the whole scale of the reef from the air.
Another natural wonder is also in the surrounding natural landscapes of Cairns: The Daintree Rainforest is the oldest rainforest in the world and is bursting with biodiversity. Tours through the unique flora and fauna are well worth an excursion, as is a trip on the Skyrail Cableway, which runs high up through the tropical forest. With a language course in Cairns, you can plunge to the very depths of the Australian natural world – doing so will take your breath away. In the Daintree Rainforest you can also explore the Kuranda Scenic Railway – a different kind of train line, which takes you along steep mountainsides past thunderous waterfalls and across 40 bridges spanning the gorges.
Getting to Cairns
The trip from Cairns Central Station takes about two hours and is always a good opportunity to tour the natural habitats around Cairns. Getting to Cairns for your language course is simple. You can fly directly into the international airport which is just seven kilometres from the city centre and so not far at all from the Eurocentres Language School in Cairns.

A typical day at Eurocentres Cairns
Peter, from Switzerland, decided to attend a Eurocentres language course after it was recommended by a friend. When his boss advised him to perfect his business English, he grasped the opportunity. The professionalism of the teacher and the school organisation have impressed him. As a diving enthusiast, he is in exactly the right place here in Cairns. His trip to the Great Barrier Reef – a favourite destination for divers from all over the world – was a wonderful experience for him. He lives with a friendly Australian host family with children. He finds the people particularly cosmopolitan and uncomplicated; you really feel at home here very quickly.
As he wanted to live close to the ocean, he has a longer journey of about 40 minutes to get to the school. Normally, it takes only between 5 and 40 minutes to get to school from the accommodation. Moreover, the school provides up-to-date, detailed information about the almost endless range of leisure activities. There are so many you wouldn't know where to start! There is so much to see – art galleries, museums, islands, beaches, shopping miles and markets, both day and night... One thing that Peter really wants to do before he goes back to Switzerland is cable skiing by night... Beautiful Cairns – this language study stay will always be unforgettable!
