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.
Change things up with these side-trips from Cairns: Port Douglas (Port Douglas Tennis Club, Mirage Country Club, & more), Cow Bay (Jindalba Boardwalk, Cow Bay Beach, & more) and Cape Tribulation (Daintree National Park, Daintree Rainforest - Cooper Creek Wilderness, & more). Spend the 16th (Tue) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. Spend the 3rd (Sat) exploring nature at Barron Gorge National Park. And it doesn't end there: identify plant and animal life at Hartley's Crocodile Adventures, trek along Esplanade Boardwalk, tour the pleasant surroundings at Trinity Beach, and have fun at Esplanade Lagoon Pool.
