An Aquatic and Coastal view of Tropical North Queensland  


* Please note the timelapse history from the 1st - 8th of June is not available due to technical difficulties. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.

The webcam is located on the top of Tower 7, between Skyrail's Smithfield Terminal and Red Peak Station and points in an Easterly direction towards the suburb of Smithfield and the Northern Cairns Beaches area, providing stunning coastal views of Cairns and the Coral Sea. There is a 120-watt solar panel supplying the camera and wireless antenna.  A daylight sensor is not used on this camera, therefore, it can be viewed 24 hours a day providing day and night viewing. This live feed offers views of the Cairns rainforest and an aquatic and coastal view of Tropical North Queensland.
