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 some cultural insight at The Australian Armour and Artillery Museum and Cairns Art Gallery. Get in touch with nature at Michaelmas Cay and Atherton Tablelands. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Cairns: Palm Cove (Spas & Wellness, Palm Cove Beach, & more). There's much more to do: look for all kinds of wild species at Tablelands, Waterfalls, and Spanish Castle, stroll through Yorkeys Knob Beach, see Multi-day Tours, and contemplate the waterfront views at Centenary Lakes - Cairns Botanic Gardens.
