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.
Get out of town with these interesting Cairns side-trips: Palm Cove (Hartley's Crocodile Adventures, Palm Cove Beach, & more). Spend the 13th (Sat) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. Spend the 15th (Mon) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. Next up on the itinerary: hike along Esplanade Boardwalk, explore the wealth of natural beauty at Barron Gorge National Park, take a memorable tour with Tours, and have fun at Muddy's Playground.
