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 Hartley's Crocodile Adventures and Scuba & Snorkeling. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Cairns: Port Douglas (Safaris, St Mary’s by The Sea chapel, & more), Australian Butterfly Sanctuary (in Kuranda) and Palm Cove (Palm Cove Beach, Kayaking & Canoeing, & more). Spend the 3rd (Sat) exploring nature at Daintree National Park. Spend the 9th (Fri) exploring nature at Barron Gorge National Park. There's lots more to do: trek along Esplanade Boardwalk, enjoy unforgettable views with a balloon tour, tour the water at your own pace with Shaolin Junk Cruises, and look for all kinds of wild species at Tablelands, Waterfalls, and Spanish Castle.
