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 Cairns' surroundings by going to Palm Cove (Hartley's Crocodile Adventures & Palm Cove Beach) and Safaris (in Port Douglas). Spend the 6th (Sat) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. There's lots more to do: stroll through Esplanade Boardwalk, have fun at Esplanade Lagoon Pool, and pause for some serene contemplation at St Monica's Cathedral.
