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 visit kid-friendly attractions like Scuba & Snorkeling and Palm Cove Beach. Change things up with these side-trips from Cairns: Daintree National Park (in Cape Tribulation), Port Douglas (Safaris, Mowbray National Park, & more) and Hartley's Crocodile Adventures (in Palm Cove). The adventure continues: tour the pleasant surroundings at Trinity Beach, look for all kinds of wild species at Mossman Gorge, take in the dramatic scenery at Alexandra Bay Waterfall, and trek along Esplanade Boardwalk.
