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.
You'll enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at Four Mile Beach and Palm Cove Beach. Family-friendly places like Daintree Discovery Centre and Hartley's Crocodile Adventures will thrill your kids. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Cairns: Rex Lookout (in Wangetti), Thornton Beach (in Thornton Beach) and Port Douglas (Safaris, Horses in Port, & more). Spend the 14th (Wed) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. Spend the 26th (Mon) exploring nature at Barron Gorge National Park. And it doesn't end there: browse the exhibits of Historic Village Herberton, look for all kinds of wild species at Mossman Gorge, take in the architecture and atmosphere at St Monica's Cathedral, and take a peaceful walk through Daintree Rainforest - Cooper Creek Wilderness.
