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.
Explore Cairns' surroundings by going to Palm Cove (Palm Cove Beach, Hartley's Crocodile Adventures, & more) and Port Douglas (Safaris, Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas, & more). Spend the 26th (Thu) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. The adventure continues: trek along Esplanade Boardwalk, see the world from above with a helicopter tour, let little ones run wild at Muddy's Playground, and enjoy unforgettable views with a balloon tour.
