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.
You'll enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at Four Mile Beach and Palm Cove Beach. Head to Coffee Works and Tanks Arts Centrefor some retail therapy. Get out of town with these interesting Cairns side-trips: Hartley's Crocodile Adventures (in Palm Cove), Port Douglas (Safaris, Sunday Market Port Douglas, & more) and Historic Village Herberton (in Herberton). Spend the 4th (Sun) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. Spend the 12th (Mon) exploring nature at Daintree National Park. There's still lots to do: browse the different shops at Smithfield Shopping Centre, browse the eclectic array of goods at Rusty's Market, look for gifts at Luminous Lights, and take a peaceful walk through Daintree Rainforest - Cooper Creek Wilderness.
