Cairns

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.
Visit Four Mile Beach and Palm Cove Beach for some beach relaxation. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Historic Village Herberton and The Australian Armour & Artillery Museum. Venture out of the city with trips to Atherton (Humpy Nut World, The Bat Hospital Visitor Centre, & more), Palm Cove (Hartley's Crocodile Adventures, Kayaking & Canoeing, & more) and Port Douglas (Safaris, Fishing Charters & Tours, & more). Spend the 10th (Sun) exploring nature at Curtain Fig National Park. Spend the 7th (Sat) exploring nature at Danbulla National Park. There's lots more to do: look for all kinds of wild species at Birdworld Kuranda, see some colorful creatures with a scuba or snorkeling tour, delve into the lush surroundings at Daintree Rainforest - Cooper Creek Wilderness, and trek along Esplanade Boardwalk.
