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.
Popular historic sites such as St Monica's Cathedral and McLeod Street Pioneer Cemetery are in your itinerary. Explore hidden gems such as Tablelands, Waterfalls, and Spanish Castle and Michaelmas Cay. Get out of town with these interesting Cairns side-trips: Palm Cove (Kayaking & Canoeing, Palm Cove Beach, & more). Spend the 19th (Fri) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. Spend the 4th (Sun) exploring nature at Barron Gorge National Park. There's still lots to do: look for all kinds of wild species at Atherton Tablelands, admire the natural beauty at Botanical Gardens, have fun at Esplanade Lagoon Pool, and try to win big at The Reef Hotel Casino.
