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.
Explore Cairns' surroundings by going to Palm Cove (Hartley's Crocodile Adventures, Cairns Tropical Zoo, & more), Port Douglas (Scuba & Snorkeling, Safaris, & more) and Cow Bay (Walu Wugirriga Lookout, Daintree Discovery Centre, & more). Spend the 11th (Wed) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. Spend the 26th (Thu) exploring nature at Barron Gorge National Park. Next up on the itinerary: hike along Esplanade Boardwalk, explore the striking landscape of Daintree National Park, walk around Paronella Park, and take a memorable tour with Tours.
