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.
The Australian Armour & Artillery Museum and Doongal Aboriginal Art Gallery Cairns are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Your itinerary includes some good beach time at Four Mile Beach and Palm Cove Beach. Step out of Cairns with an excursion to Rex Lookout in Wangetti--about 54 minutes away. Spend the 19th (Fri) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. Next up on the itinerary: take in the architecture and atmosphere at St Monica's Cathedral, see the world from above with a helicopter tour, admire the masterpieces at Cairns Art Gallery, and hike along Esplanade Boardwalk.
