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.
We've included these beaches for you: Palm Cove Beach and Trinity Beach. Take a break from the city and head to Kayaking & Canoeing and Hartley's Crocodile Adventures. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Cairns: Palm Cove (Spas & Wellness & Annie's Ladies Boutique). Spend the 3rd (Sat) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. Spend the 11th (Sun) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. There's still lots to do: identify plant and animal life at Tablelands, Waterfalls, and Spanish Castle, cross one thing off your bucket list with a skydiving experience, enjoy the sand and surf at Yorkeys Knob Beach, and admire the sheer force of Josephine Falls.
