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 a sense of the local culture at The Australian Armour & Artillery Museum and Bones and Jones. Relax by the water at Palm Cove Beach and Trinity Beach. Change things up with these side-trips from Cairns: Palm Cove (Hartley's Crocodile Adventures, Spas & Wellness, & more). Spend the 24th (Mon) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. Spend the 26th (Wed) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. There's still lots to do: stroll through Esplanade Boardwalk, take an unforgettable tour with a helicopter tour, soar above the sights with a balloon tour, and admire the natural beauty at Botanical Gardens.
