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.
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes Babinda Boulders, Seastar Cruises Reef Day Trips, Kuranda Scenic Railway, and other attractions you added. You'll get in some beach time at Four Mile Beach and Palm Cove Beach. For shopping fun, head to Sunday Market Port Douglas or Stockland Cairns Shopping Centre. Get out of town with these interesting Cairns side-trips: Palm Cove (Hartley's Crocodile Adventures & Kayaking & Canoeing), Rex Lookout (in Wangetti) and Cow Bay (Walu Wugirriga Lookout, Daintree Discovery Centre, & more). Spend the 2nd (Mon) exploring nature at Daintree National Park. Spend the 15th (Sun) exploring nature at Mowbray National Park. Next up on the itinerary: explore the galleries of Floravilla Ice Cream Factory, buy something for everyone on your list at Smithfield Shopping Centre, look for all kinds of wild species at Daintree Rainforest - Cooper Creek Wilderness, and pause for some serene contemplation at St Monica's Cathedral.
