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.
We've included these beaches for you: Four Mile Beach and Trinity Beach. Head to Night Markets and Rusty's Marketfor some retail therapy. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Cairns: Palm Cove (Hartley's Crocodile Adventures & Palm Cove Beach), Port Douglas (Safaris, Sunday Market Port Douglas, & more) and Daintree Discovery Centre (in Cow Bay). Spend the 20th (Wed) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. There's much more to do: take a stroll around Tanks Arts Centre, hike along Esplanade Boardwalk, get outside with Esplanade Lagoon Pool, and browse the different shops at Smithfield Shopping Centre.
