Favorite thing: I often come up to the slopes of Cairns to get a birds eye view of Cairns and the suburbs in what we the locals call the horseshoe.
The views look down onto new housing estates/suburbs that used to be cane fields.
It also looks beyond to the growing city of Cairns and the hills over east Trinity.
I usually come up to some of these places to watch the fireworks when they are on.
One popular place is on Lake Morris Road on the way to Copperlode Dam,but I like going to the suburbs around where I live in Whitfield/Edge Hill.

Fondest memory: Fantastic views in non-crowded places.
I love looking out toward the city and down to the suburbs of Cairns--day and night.
You can hike up to these places or just drive around the suburbs of Cairns heading for the higher suburbs of Whitfield,Bayview,Edge Hill.
