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 a sense of the local culture at Daintree Discovery Centre and Historic Village Herberton. Visit Four Mile Beach and Trinity Beach for some beach relaxation. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Cairns: Rex Lookout (in Wangetti) and Port Douglas (Safaris, Sunday Market Port Douglas, & more). Next up on the itinerary: trek along Esplanade Boardwalk, discover the deep blue sea with a scuba or snorkeling tour, take in the exciting artwork at Underart Gallery, and stop by OK Gift Shop.
