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.
You'll explore and learn at Daintree Discovery Centre and Underart Gallery. Get in touch with nature at Nature & Wildlife Tours and Four Mile Beach. Change things up with these side-trips from Cairns: Palm Cove (Hartley's Crocodile Adventures & Palm Cove Beach), Port Douglas (Safaris & Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas) and Rex Lookout (in Wangetti). Spend the 8th (Mon) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. Spend the 14th (Sun) exploring nature at Daintree National Park. Next up on the itinerary: tour the pleasant surroundings at Esplanade Boardwalk, take in nature's colorful creations at Botanical Gardens, play a few rounds at Cairns Golf Club, and enjoy the sand and surf at Trinity Beach.
