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.
Take a break from the city and head to Trinity Beach and Palm Cove Beach. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Nature & Wildlife Tours and Australian Butterfly Sanctuary. Venture out of the city with trips to Hartley's Crocodile Adventures (in Palm Cove) and Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas (in Port Douglas).
