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.
We've included these beaches for you: Palm Cove Beach and Trinity Beach. Step out of the city life by going to Scuba & Snorkeling and Esplanade Boardwalk. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Cairns: Village Gallery (in Palm Cove), Tolga Woodworks Gallery & Cafe (in Tolga) and Historic Village Herberton (in Herberton). Next up on the itinerary: take in the exciting artwork at Underart Gallery, browse the exhibits of Doongal Aboriginal Art, hunt for treasures at Rusty's Market, and admire the landmark architecture of Freshwater Station.
