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.
Kids will appreciate attractions like Safaris and Thornton Beach. Step out of the city life by going to Four Mile Beach and Scuba & Snorkeling. Change things up with these side-trips from Cairns: Port Douglas (Ngarru Gallery, Port Douglas Court House Museum, & more), Australian Butterfly Sanctuary (in Kuranda) and Palm Cove (Village Gallery, Hartley's Crocodile Adventures, & more). Spend the 11th (Mon) exploring nature at Daintree National Park. The adventure continues: kick back and relax at Trinity Beach, stroll through Wonga Beach, trek along Esplanade Boardwalk, and take in the dramatic scenery at Alexandra Bay Waterfall.
