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.
Escape the urban bustle at Tablelands, Waterfalls, and Spanish Castle and Atherton Tablelands. Do some cultural sightseeing at The Australian Armour & Artillery Museum and Bones and Jones. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Cairns: Palm Cove (Hartley's Crocodile Adventures, Palm Cove Beach, & more). Spend the 8th (Fri) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. The adventure continues: identify plant and animal life at Michaelmas Cay, head outdoors with Esplanade Lagoon Pool, get out on two wheels at Trail Bike Adventures, and explore the galleries of Doongal Aboriginal Art.
