Great Barrier Reef Webcam

An Aquatic and Coastal view of Tropical North Queensland 

Please note this webcam is currently offline due to maintenance. We apologise for any inconvenience caused during this time. In the meantime please view our Barron Falls camera.


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.
