Cairns

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.
Get a sense of the local culture at Historic Village Herberton and Bones and Jones. Museum-lovers will get to explore Daintree Discovery Centre and Doongal Aboriginal Art. Get out of town with these interesting Cairns side-trips: Daintree National Park (in Cape Tribulation), Palm Cove (Hartley's Crocodile Adventures & Palm Cove Beach) and Port Douglas (Funstuff by Lynda, Sunday Market Port Douglas, & more). Spend the 6th (Wed) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. There's still lots to do: take a stroll around Tanks Arts Centre, browse the eclectic array of goods at Rusty's Market, explore the world behind art at Cairns Art Gallery, and view the masterpieces at Floravilla Ice Cream Factory.
