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.
Explore Cairns' surroundings by going to Palm Cove (Hartley's Crocodile Adventures & Palm Cove Beach), Port Douglas (Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas & Safaris) and Rex Lookout (in Wangetti). There's still lots to do: identify plant and animal life at Wildlife Areas, take a leisurely stroll along The Jack Barnes Bicentennial Mangrove Boardwalk, don't miss a visit to Freshwater Station, and take a memorable tour with Tours.
