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.
Historic Village Herberton and St Monica's Cathedral will appeal to history buffs. You'll get in some beach time at Four Mile Beach and Palm Cove Beach. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Cairns: Palm Cove (Hartley's Crocodile Adventures & Spas & Wellness). Spend the 24th (Mon) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. Next up on the itinerary: enjoy the sand and surf at Trinity Beach.
