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.
Discover out-of-the-way places like Atherton Tablelands and Kayaking & Canoeing. Visiting Hartley's Crocodile Adventures and Gallo DairyLand will get you outdoors. Change things up with these side-trips from Cairns: Palm Cove (Palm Cove Beach & Spas & Wellness). Spend the 16th (Wed) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. Spend the 22nd (Tue) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. Next up on the itinerary: step off the mainland to explore Michaelmas Cay, hike along Esplanade Boardwalk, identify plant and animal life at Tablelands, Waterfalls, and Spanish Castle, and get out on two wheels at Trail Bike Adventures.
