The location of Cairns













Welcome to Cairns ...

So far, we have found very little information about Cairns. The little that we've found leads us believe that the community is historic.<1>

We've added Cairns to our Gazetteer with the hope that we can develop more information. If you can help us with Cairns, please Contact Us.


We aren't confident of the location of Cairns, so consider the above location as an estimate.<2>

Time Zone: The area where Cairns was located is in the Mountain Time Zone (MST/MDT) and observes daylight saving time. The time zone in French: MST- Heure Normale des Rocheuses (HNR).

Note: If you travel east from Cairns (for example, toward Macklin (SK)), you will leave Mountain Time and cross into the Central Standard Time Zone (CST). In addition, you will be moving from an area that observes daylight saving time to one that does not.

If Cairns still existed, it would have been in the (780) and (587)<3> area codes.

Footnotes ...

<1>We use the term 'Historic' broadly and it generally means that the community no longer exists. However, it can also mean that the community might still exist, but was significantly larger or had a more 'official' existence in the past than it does now. Unfortunately our sources of data have proven to be unreliable. If you can provide us with more specific information about Cairns, please let us know so that we can improve our accuracy.

<2>An 'estimated' location is one where we have been given GPS coordinates, but are unable to verify the accuracy. That said, we have some confidence that we have placed the marker near the actual location. A typical reason for being unable to verify a location is that it might be on private property or gone without an obvious trace.

<3>Area code (587) is an overlay for area code (780).

<4>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'point-to-point' distance. A straight line distance ignores obstructions like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line drawn from Point A (ie- Cairns) to Point B.

If you need the driving distance, we recommend that you use one of the Mapping Services listed on our Map Page for Cairns. Since we usually use Google Maps for our own planning, we've provided the following link: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Cairns

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Cairns. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 52.3472, Longitude: -110.5556     [Map].

<5>Unless noted otherwise, the population counts we use should be considered estimates. Our population values for Cairns were taken from various sources and although they can be traced back to Statistics Canada (StatCan), they should not be considered official.
