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.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Cairns: Safaris (in Port Douglas) and Hartley's Crocodile Adventures (in Palm Cove). Spend the 28th (Sun) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. The adventure continues: enjoy some diversion at Esplanade Lagoon Pool.

For where to stay, traveler tips, ratings, and tourist information, you can read our Cairns journey planner .
