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.
Visit Historic Village Herberton and St Monica's Cathedral for their historical value. Kids will appreciate attractions like Daintree Discovery Centre and Scuba & Snorkeling. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Cairns: Palm Cove (Hartley's Crocodile Adventures & Palm Cove Beach), Port Douglas (Four Mile Beach, Safaris, & more) and Australian Butterfly Sanctuary (in Kuranda). Spend the 29th (Tue) exploring nature at Daintree National Park. There's still lots to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Trinity Beach, tour the pleasant surroundings at Esplanade Boardwalk, learn about winemaking at Shannonvale Tropical Fruit Winery, and delve into the lush surroundings at Daintree Rainforest - Cooper Creek Wilderness.
