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.
Do some cultural sightseeing at The Australian Armour & Artillery Museum and Samurai Gallery Australia. Take a break from the city and head to Tablelands, Waterfalls, and Spanish Castle and Skydiving. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Cairns: Palm Cove (Kayaking & Canoeing & Palm Cove Beach). The adventure continues: discover the deep blue sea with a scuba or snorkeling tour, kick back and relax at Ellis Beach, tour the pleasant surroundings at Yorkeys Knob Beach, and admire the sheer force of Josephine Falls.
