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.
Do your shopping at Village Gallery and Rusty's Market. Get in touch with nature at Daintree Discovery Centre and Safaris. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Cairns: Humpy Nut World (in Atherton), Historic Village Herberton (in Herberton) and Palm Cove (Hartley's Crocodile Adventures & Palm Cove Beach). Spend the 24th (Thu) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. Spend the 4th (Mon) exploring nature at Daintree National Park. Next up on the itinerary: stroll through Four Mile Beach, take a stroll around Tanks Arts Centre, take a peaceful walk through Daintree Rainforest - Cooper Creek Wilderness, and explore the galleries of Des Spencer Galleries.
