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.
Take a break from the city and head to Safaris and Four Mile Beach. Relax by the water at Palm Cove Beach and Cow Bay Beach. Venture out of the city with trips to Kuranda (Australian Butterfly Sanctuary & Doongul Aboriginal Art Gallery), Palm Cove (Hartley's Crocodile Adventures, Spas & Wellness, & more) and Port Douglas (Port Douglas Golf Tours, Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas, & more). Spend the 24th (Thu) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. Next up on the itinerary: enjoy the sand and surf at Trinity Beach, hike along Esplanade Boardwalk, look for all kinds of wild species at Tablelands, Waterfalls, and Spanish Castle, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Trail Bike Adventures.
