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.
Explore hidden gems such as Opal Reef and Babinda Boulders. Appreciate the collections at The Crystal Caves and Historic Village Herberton. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Cairns: Birdworld Kuranda (in Kuranda), Mareeba (Jaques Coffee Plantation & Granite Gorge Nature Park) and Kayaking & Canoeing (in Palm Cove). Spend the 26th (Wed) exploring nature at Curtain Fig National Park. The adventure continues: look for all kinds of wild species at Tablelands, Waterfalls, and Spanish Castle, step off the mainland to explore Michaelmas Cay, kick back and relax at Wonga Beach, and have unforgettable encounters with a shark diving experience.
