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.
Escape the urban bustle at Nature & Wildlife Tours and Four Mile Beach. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Cairns: Hartley's Crocodile Adventures (in Palm Cove) and Safaris (in Port Douglas). There's more to do: hike along Esplanade Boardwalk and admire the natural beauty at Botanical Gardens.
