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.
Visiting Opal Reef and Daintree Rainforest - Cooper Creek Wilderness will get you outdoors. Let the collections at Historic Village Herberton and Rainforest Gems Gallery & Studio capture your imagination. Explore Cairns' surroundings by going to Port Douglas (Four Mile Beach, Safaris, & more), Rex Lookout (in Wangetti) and Palm Cove (Hartley's Crocodile Adventures, Palm Cove Beach, & more). Spend the 30th (Thu) exploring nature at Curtain Fig National Park. Spend the 21st (Tue) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. Next up on the itinerary: head off the coast to Michaelmas Cay, look for all kinds of wild species at Atherton Tablelands, explore the wealth of natural beauty at Wooroonooran National Park, and get a new perspective on nature at The Crystal Caves.
