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.
You'll enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at Four Mile Beach and Trinity Beach. Visiting Safaris and Esplanade Boardwalk will get you outdoors. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Cairns: Port Douglas (Horses in Port, St Mary’s by The Sea chapel, & more), Australian Butterfly Sanctuary (in Kuranda) and Cape Tribulation (Daintree Rainforest - Cooper Creek Wilderness & Daintree National Park). Spend the 26th (Fri) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. Spend the 13th (Tue) exploring nature at Barron Gorge National Park. The adventure continues: relax in the rural setting at Hartley's Crocodile Adventures, tour the water at your own pace with Shaolin Junk Cruises, have fun at Esplanade Lagoon Pool, and engage your brain at Daintree Discovery Centre.
