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.
Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Historic Village Herberton and St Monica's Cathedral. Your itinerary includes some good beach time at Four Mile Beach and Trinity Beach. Change things up with these side-trips from Cairns: Port Douglas (Safaris, Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas, & more), Daintree Discovery Centre (in Cow Bay) and Floravilla Ice Cream Factory (in Daintree). Spend the 18th (Wed) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. Spend the 2nd (Wed) exploring nature at Barron Gorge National Park. And it doesn't end there: get interesting insight from Tours, look for all kinds of wild species at Mossman Gorge, trek along Esplanade Boardwalk, and kick back and relax at Palm Cove Beach.
