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.
Step out of the city life by going to Hartley's Crocodile Adventures and Palm Cove Beach. Venture out of the city with trips to Palm Cove (Kayaking & Canoeing, Annie's Ladies Boutique, & more). Spend the 3rd (Tue) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. Spend the 15th (Sun) exploring nature at Barron Gorge National Park. There's lots more to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at Esplanade Boardwalk, choose your vessel at Shaolin Junk Cruises, take a memorable tour with Tours, and step off the mainland to explore Michaelmas Cay.
