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.
Esplanade Lagoon Pool has been added to your itinerary. Get in touch with nature at Four Mile Beach and Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas. Step out of Cairns with an excursion to Safaris in Port Douglas--about 1h 25 min away. The adventure continues: look for all kinds of wild species at Wildlife Areas.

To see maps, traveler tips, and more tourist information, refer to the Cairns online trip itinerary maker .
