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.
Start off your visit on the 28th (Fri): discover the deep blue sea with a scuba or snorkeling tour. Keep things going the next day: kick back and relax at Palm Cove Beach and then identify plant and animal life at Mossman Gorge.
