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.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Historic Village Herberton and Golden Drop Mango Winery. You'll enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at Four Mile Beach and Palm Cove Beach. Explore Cairns' surroundings by going to Palm Cove (Hartley's Crocodile Adventures & Kayaking & Canoeing), Rex Lookout (in Wangetti) and Port Douglas (Safaris, Horses in Port, & more). Spend the 21st (Tue) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. Spend the 1st (Sat) exploring nature at Curtain Fig National Park. There's lots more to do: identify plant and animal life at Birdworld Kuranda, head off the coast to Michaelmas Cay, explore the striking landscape at Babinda Boulders, and delve into the lush surroundings at Daintree Rainforest - Cooper Creek Wilderness.
