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 Wait-a-While Rainforest Tours. Appreciate the collections at Historic Village Herberton and The Australian Armour & Artillery Museum. Your cultural itinerary includes sights like The Crystal Caves and Mareeba Heritage Museum and Visitor Information Centre. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Cairns: Port Douglas (Safaris, Flagstaff Hill Lookout, & more), Hartley's Crocodile Adventures (in Palm Cove) and Wrights Lookout (in Kuranda). The adventure continues: identify plant and animal life at Granite Gorge Nature Park, go for a walk through Red Arrow Walk, delve into the lush surroundings at Cathedral Fig Tree, and take an in-depth tour of Spy & Camera Museum.
