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.
Relax by the water at Four Mile Beach and Palm Cove Beach. Take a break from the city and head to Safaris and Scuba & Snorkeling. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Cairns: Port Douglas (Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas, With Sugar, & more), Alexandra Bay Waterfall (in Diwan) and Historic Village Herberton (in Herberton). Spend the 15th (Sat) exploring nature at Daintree National Park. On the 22nd (Sat), spend an adventurous day with a kayaking and canoeing tour. The adventure continues: relax in the rural setting at Hartley's Crocodile Adventures, pause for some serene contemplation at St Monica's Cathedral, get out on two wheels at Trail Bike Adventures, and get curious at Daintree Discovery Centre.
