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.
Explore Cairns' surroundings by going to Port Douglas (Safaris, Four Mile Beach, & more), Australian Butterfly Sanctuary (in Kuranda) and Palm Cove (Palm Cove Beach, Hartley's Crocodile Adventures, & more). Spend the 20th (Tue) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. The adventure continues: head outdoors with Esplanade Lagoon Pool, stroll through Trail Bike Adventures, see the world from above with a helicopter tour, and make a trip to Green Island.
