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.
Night Markets has been added to your itinerary. Head to Village Gallery and Des Spencer Galleriesfor some retail therapy. You'll get in some beach time at Four Mile Beach and Palm Cove Beach. Venture out of the city with trips to Hartley's Crocodile Adventures (in Palm Cove) and Safaris (in Port Douglas). Next up on the itinerary: see some colorful creatures with a scuba or snorkeling tour, browse the exhibits of Underart Gallery, and take in the exciting artwork at Bones and Jones.
