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 ready for a full day of sightseeing on the 6th (Mon): experience rural life at Hartley's Crocodile Adventures and then enjoy the sand and surf at Palm Cove Beach.
