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.
Attractions like Scuba & Snorkeling and Hartley's Crocodile Adventures make great kid-friendly stops. Get out of town with these interesting Cairns side-trips: Cow Bay (Walu Wugirriga Lookout, Cow Bay Beach, & more), Port Douglas (Safaris, Four Mile Beach, & more) and Palm Cove (Spas & Wellness & Palm Cove Beach). Spend the 7th (Tue) exploring nature at Daintree National Park. Next up on the itinerary: tour the pleasant surroundings at Esplanade Boardwalk, identify plant and animal life at Mossman Gorge, take a peaceful walk through Daintree Rainforest - Cooper Creek Wilderness, and make a trip to Green Island.
