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.
Escape the urban bustle at Safaris and Four Mile Beach. Visit Palm Cove Beach and Yorkeys Knob Beach for some beach relaxation. Get out of town with these interesting Cairns side-trips: Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas (in Port Douglas) and Palm Cove (Hartley's Crocodile Adventures, Spas & Wellness, & more). Spend the 3rd (Sun) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. There's still lots to do: trek along Esplanade Boardwalk, take an unforgettable tour with a helicopter tour, enjoy some diversion at Esplanade Lagoon Pool, and stroll through Trinity Beach.

For where to stay, maps, reviews, and other tourist information, go to the Cairns driving holiday planning site .
