Cairns

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.
Get some cultural insight at Historic Village Herberton and Rainforest Gems Gallery & Studio. Get outdoors at Michaelmas Cay and Safaris. Get out of town with these interesting Cairns side-trips: Birdworld Kuranda (in Kuranda) and Palm Cove (Hartley's Crocodile Adventures & Palm Cove Beach). Spend the 12th (Tue) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. There's more to do: look for all kinds of wild species at Atherton Tablelands.
