Kamerunga is a suburb of Cairns in the Cairns Region, Queensland in Australia, located 10 km (6.2 mi) northwest of the city centre. At the 2016 Australian Census, the suburb recorded a population of 1,049.
In the east farmland predominates, central areas are used for residential purposes and the west is mostly undeveloped bushland on the foothills of the Atherton Tableland escarpment.
While Kamerunga is now a suburb within the Cairns Region, it historically formed part of the Shire of Barron and was significant as a crossing point on the Barron River. A new high level road bridge opened in 1980 to replace the original bridge, which remains as a popular fishing spot during the dry season.
