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 get in some beach time at Palm Cove Beach and Wonga Beach. Visiting Hartley's Crocodile Adventures and Four Mile Beach will get you outdoors. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Cairns: Cape Tribulation (Daintree National Park & Daintree Rainforest - Cooper Creek Wilderness), Port Douglas (Eclipse FNQ Charters, Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas, & more) and Shannonvale Tropical Fruit Winery (in Mossman). Spend the 1st (Mon) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. Spend the 22nd (Mon) exploring nature at Barron Gorge National Park. There's much more to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Trinity Beach, look for all kinds of wild species at Atherton Tablelands, explore the galleries of Daintree Discovery Centre, and stroll through Yorkeys Knob Beach.
