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.
Get in touch with nature at Hartley's Crocodile Adventures and Esplanade Boardwalk. Do some cultural sightseeing at The Australian Armour & Artillery Museum and Bones and Jones. Venture out of the city with trips to Palm Cove (Village Gallery, Palm Cove Beach, & more). Spend the 2nd (Tue) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. Spend the 4th (Thu) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. There's still lots to do: choose your vessel at Shaolin Junk Cruises, see the world from above with a helicopter tour, identify plant and animal life at Atherton Tablelands, and take in nature's colorful creations at Botanical Gardens.
