Airport Avenue.

As one leaves Cairns International Airport to drive into the city; a short drive down Airport Avenue there is a parking bay next to mangrove forest. There are two boardwalks here that provide safe and very easy access into the swamplands. Myrmecodia beccarii and a number of epiphytic orchid species may be seen here along with fauna such as crabs and mudskippers.
