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 Artistree Gallery. You'll get in some beach time at Four Mile Beach and Palm Cove Beach. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Cairns: Birdworld Kuranda (in Kuranda), Hartley's Crocodile Adventures (in Palm Cove) and Port Douglas (Safaris & Opal Reef). Spend the 25th (Mon) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. Next up on the itinerary: head off the coast to Michaelmas Cay, look for all kinds of wild species at Tablelands, Waterfalls, and Spanish Castle, hike along Esplanade Boardwalk, and kick back and relax at Trinity Beach.
