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.
Do some cultural sightseeing at St Monica's Cathedral and KickArts Contemporary Arts. You'll explore and learn at The Australian Armour & Artillery Museum and Bones and Jones. Venture out of the city with trips to Palm Cove (Hartley's Crocodile Adventures, Palm Cove Beach, & more) and Ross and Locke Park (in Little Mulgrave). Spend the 25th (Sat) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. Spend the 28th (Tue) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. There's still lots to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Trinity Beach, get interesting insight from Tours, make a trip to Green Island, and play a few rounds at Cairns Golf Club.

For maps, other places to visit, and more tourist information, read Cairns road trip planning website .
