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.
Get outdoors at Safaris and Hartley's Crocodile Adventures. Relax by the water at Four Mile Beach and Trinity Beach. Change things up with these side-trips from Cairns: Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas (in Port Douglas) and Palm Cove Beach (in Palm Cove). Spend the 3rd (Thu) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. There's much more to do: trek along Esplanade Boardwalk, take in the architecture and atmosphere at St Monica's Cathedral, enjoy the sand and surf at Yorkeys Knob Beach, and head outdoors with Aquatica.

Ask Inspirock to suggest an itinerary and make planning a trip to Cairns fast, fun, and easy.
