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.
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes Atherton Tablelands, Night Markets, Rusty's Market, and other attractions you added. Escape the urban bustle at Hartley's Crocodile Adventures and Palm Cove Beach. Get some cultural insight at St Monica's Cathedral and The Australian Armour & Artillery Museum. When in Cairns, make a side trip to see Village Gallery in Palm Cove, approximately 36 minutes away. And it doesn't end there: take a tour by water with Boat Tours & Water Sports, hike along Esplanade Boardwalk, and view the masterpieces at Michael Seebeck Gallery.
