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.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Cairns: Palm Cove (Hartley's Crocodile Adventures, Spas, & more) and Port Douglas (Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas, Safaris, & more). There's still lots to do: see some colorful creatures with a scuba or snorkeling tour, let little ones run wild at Muddy's Playground, take an unforgettable tour with a helicopter tour, and admire the natural beauty at Botanical Gardens.
