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.
Change things up with these side-trips from Cairns: Jaques Coffee Plantation (in Mareeba), Historic Village Herberton (in Herberton) and Port Douglas (Safaris, Ngarru Gallery, & more). Spend the 1st (Mon) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. Spend the 5th (Mon) exploring nature at Barron Gorge National Park. The adventure continues: experience rural life at Hartley's Crocodile Adventures, look for all kinds of wild species at Mossman Gorge, enjoy the sand and surf at Palm Cove Beach, and enjoy unforgettable views with a balloon tour.
