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.
You'll discover tucked-away gems like Daintree Rainforest - Cooper Creek Wilderness and Opal Reef. Venture out of the city with trips to Yungaburra (Cathedral Fig Tree, Curtain Fig National Park, & more), Palm Cove (Spas & Wellness, Hartley's Crocodile Adventures, & more) and Port Douglas (Four Mile Beach, Safaris, & more). Spend the 13th (Sun) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. Spend the 27th (Sun) exploring nature at Lake Eacham Crater Lakes National Park. The adventure continues: step off the mainland to explore Michaelmas Cay, explore the striking landscape at Babinda Boulders, admire nature's wide array of creatures at Kuranda Koala Gardens, and identify plant and animal life at Birdworld Kuranda.
