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.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Cairns: Port Douglas (Scuba & Snorkeling, Safaris, & more) and Palm Cove (Hartley's Crocodile Adventures & Palm Cove Beach). There's still lots to do: stroll through Esplanade Boardwalk, take in nature's colorful creations at Munro Martin Parklands, relax and rejuvenate at some of the top local wellness centers, and choose your vessel at Shaolin Junk Cruises.

Queensland’s biggest town and state capital, Brisbane has an attractive, manicured image based around its riverside aesthetic as well as the contrast between its high-rise center and extensive urban greenery.
