 In the 1930's, Cairns waterfront was a bustling hub of activity and characters known as the 'Barbary Coast'. The heritage listed Barrier Reef Hotel is the last remaining pub left from this era, evoking memories of this city’s colourful history.
Ideally located amongst the waterfront redevelopment, and adjacent to the Reef Casino, the Barrier Reef Hotel offers great pub facilities such as cold beers on tap, the only PubTAB in the City Centre and a modern Gaming Room with 35 of the latest gaming machines.
