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.
Escape the urban bustle at Hartley's Crocodile Adventures and Safaris. Step out of Cairns to go to Palm Cove and see Palm Cove Beach, which is approximately 32 minutes away. Spend the 25th (Thu) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour.
