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.
Bring the kids along to Scuba & Snorkeling and Hartley's Crocodile Adventures. Venture out of the city with trips to Palm Cove (Kayaking & Canoeing, Village Gallery, & more). Spend the 20th (Fri) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. Spend the 7th (Tue) exploring nature at Barron Gorge National Park. There's much more to do: trek along Esplanade Boardwalk, cool off at Sugarworld Waterpark, identify plant and animal life at Atherton Tablelands, and take in nature's colorful creations at Botanical Gardens.
