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.
Visiting Scuba & Snorkeling and Esplanade Boardwalk will get you outdoors. Shop till you drop at Tanks Arts Centre and Rusty's Market. Venture out of the city with trips to Palm Cove (Hartley's Crocodile Adventures & Palm Cove Beach). Spend the 8th (Fri) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. And it doesn't end there: buy something for everyone on your list at Smithfield Shopping Centre, view the masterpieces at Bones and Jones, soar above the sights with a balloon tour, and look for all kinds of wild species at Michaelmas Cay.
