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.
Change things up with these side-trips from Cairns: Palm Cove (Hartley's Crocodile Adventures, Palm Cove Beach, & more). Spend the 2nd (Sun) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. Spend the 4th (Tue) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. There's lots more to do: trek along Esplanade Boardwalk, enjoy unforgettable views with a balloon tour, have fun at Esplanade Lagoon Pool, and get interesting insight from Tours.
