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.
On the 29th (Thu), stroll through Palm Cove Beach, then learn about all things military at The Australian Armour & Artillery Museum, and then take in the architecture and atmosphere at St Monica's Cathedral. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the 30th (Fri): look for all kinds of wild species at Wildlife Areas.
