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.
Reef Experience has been added to your itinerary. Explore Cairns' surroundings by going to Palm Cove (Hartley's Crocodile Adventures, Annie's Ladies Boutique, & more) and Port Douglas (Safaris, Four Mile Beach, & more). Spend the 25th (Thu) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. The adventure continues: hike along Esplanade Boardwalk, admire the natural beauty at Botanical Gardens, have fun at Esplanade Lagoon Pool, and admire the landmark architecture of Freshwater Station.
