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.
Visit Four Mile Beach and Palm Cove Beach for some beach relaxation. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Opal Reef and Granite Gorge Nature Park. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Cairns: Port Douglas (Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas, Safaris, & more), Palm Cove (Hartley's Crocodile Adventures & Kayaking & Canoeing) and Rex Lookout (in Wangetti). Spend the 11th (Sat) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. Spend the 25th (Sat) exploring nature at Daintree National Park. Next up on the itinerary: look for all kinds of wild species at Atherton Tablelands, explore the wealth of natural beauty at Curtain Fig National Park, experience rural life at Gallo DairyLand, and step off the mainland to explore Michaelmas Cay.
