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.
Take a break from the city and head to Scuba & Snorkeling and Hartley's Crocodile Adventures. You'll enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at Trinity Beach and Palm Cove Beach. Change things up with these side-trips from Cairns: Shannonvale Tropical Fruit Winery (in Mossman), Daintree Rainforest - Cooper Creek Wilderness (in Cape Tribulation) and Port Douglas (Safaris & Four Mile Beach). There's lots more to do: trek along Esplanade Boardwalk, take in the waterfront at The Jack Barnes Bicentennial Mangrove Boardwalk, take in the architecture and atmosphere at St Monica's Cathedral, and choose your vessel at Shaolin Junk Cruises.

Plan my Cairns trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.
