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.
You'll get in some beach time at Four Mile Beach and Trinity Beach. Museum-lovers will get to explore Daintree Discovery Centre and Bones and Jones. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Cairns: Port Douglas (Safaris & Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas), Historic Village Herberton (in Herberton) and Palm Cove (Palm Cove Beach & Hartley's Crocodile Adventures). Spend the 21st (Fri) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. Next up on the itinerary: identify plant and animal life at Mossman Gorge, enjoy some diversion at Esplanade Lagoon Pool, have some family-friendly fun at Cairns Kart Hire Track, and do a tasting at Shannonvale Tropical Fruit Winery.
