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.
Kids will enjoy Palm Cove Beach and Yorkeys Knob Beach. Get in touch with nature at Scuba & Snorkeling and Hartley's Crocodile Adventures. Go for a jaunt from Cairns to Palm Cove to see Spas about 30 minutes away. And it doesn't end there: get a dose of the wild on a nature and wildlife tour, soar above the sights with a balloon tour, look for all kinds of wild species at Atherton Tablelands, and kick back and relax at Trinity Beach.
