A neat, cosmopolitan city of shaded plazas and laid-back neighborhoods, Cairns serves as a popular base for exploration of the surrounding region and the Great Barrier Reef, as well as a center for watersport activities like surfing or waterskiing.
Visit Trinity Beach and Cow Bay Beach for some beach relaxation. Get some cultural insight at Historic Village Herberton and Michael Seebeck Gallery. Explore Cairns' surroundings by going to Port Douglas (Scuba & Snorkeling, Safaris, & more), Daintree Discovery Centre (in Cow Bay) and Daintree National Park (in Cape Tribulation). There's lots more to do: take in the architecture and atmosphere at St Monica's Cathedral, see the world from above with a helicopter tour, choose your vessel at Shaolin Junk Cruises, and enjoy some diversion at Esplanade Lagoon Pool.
