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.
Kids will appreciate attractions like Scuba & Snorkeling and Nature & Wildlife Tours. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Cairns: Palm Cove (Hartley's Crocodile Adventures, Palm Cove Beach, & more). There's much more to do: hike along Esplanade Boardwalk, see the world from above with a helicopter tour, don't miss a visit to Green Island, and cool off at Sugarworld Waterpark.
