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.
Get outdoors at Daintree Discovery Centre and Scuba & Snorkeling. Get a sense of the local culture at Historic Village Herberton and Underart Gallery. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Cairns: Palm Cove (Kayaking & Canoeing, Palm Cove Beach, & more), Kuranda (Kuranda Arts Co-Op Gallery, Peter Jarver Gallery, & more) and Port Douglas (Eye to Eye Marine Encounters, Safaris, & more). Spend the 13th (Sat) exploring nature at Daintree National Park. Spend the 2nd (Thu) exploring nature at Barron Gorge National Park. There's lots more to do: stroll through Esplanade Boardwalk, kick back and relax at Thornton Beach, take a peaceful walk through Daintree Rainforest - Cooper Creek Wilderness, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at St Monica's Cathedral.
