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.
Explore Cairns' surroundings by going to Palm Cove (Hartley's Crocodile Adventures, Palm Cove Beach, & more). Spend the 3rd (Thu) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. Spend the 6th (Sun) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. And it doesn't end there: tour the pleasant surroundings at Esplanade Boardwalk, enjoy the sand and surf at Trinity Beach, enjoy unforgettable views with a balloon tour, and enjoy some diversion at Esplanade Lagoon Pool.
