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.
Head to Sunday Market Port Douglas and Village Galleryfor some retail therapy. Relax by the water at Four Mile Beach and Trinity Beach. Change things up with these side-trips from Cairns: Port Douglas (Ngarru Gallery & Des Spencer Galleries) and Palm Cove Beach (in Palm Cove). Spend the 22nd (Tue) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. There's still lots to do: take a stroll around Tanks Arts Centre, view the masterpieces at Underart Gallery, and explore the galleries of Michael Seebeck Gallery.
