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 out of town with these interesting Cairns side-trips: Palm Cove (Hartley's Crocodile Adventures, Kayaking & Canoeing, & more). Spend the 25th (Thu) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. Spend the 4th (Sun) exploring nature at Barron Gorge National Park. And it doesn't end there: tour the pleasant surroundings at Esplanade Boardwalk, see the world from above with a helicopter tour, get a dose of the wild on a nature and wildlife tour, and have fun at Esplanade Lagoon Pool.
