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.
Your cultural itinerary includes sights like The Australian Armour & Artillery Museum and Cairns Art Gallery. Step out of the city life by going to Tablelands, Waterfalls, and Spanish Castle and Michaelmas Cay. Change things up with these side-trips from Cairns: Palm Cove (Palm Cove Beach, Kayaking & Canoeing, & more). Spend the 21st (Thu) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. Spend the 26th (Tue) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. Next up on the itinerary: enjoy the sand and surf at Trinity Beach, admire all the interesting features of Red Arrow Walk, hike along Esplanade Boardwalk, and choose your vessel at Shaolin Junk Cruises.
