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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Palm Cove (Hartley's Crocodile Adventures, Palm Cove Beach, & more). Spend the 20th (Wed) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. Spend the 22nd (Fri) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. There's much more to do: hike along Esplanade Boardwalk, take an unforgettable tour with a helicopter tour, get interesting insight from Tours, and let little ones run wild at Muddy's Playground.
