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.
Relax by the water at Four Mile Beach and Palm Cove Beach. Escape the urban bustle at Safaris and Hartley's Crocodile Adventures. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Cairns: Daintree Discovery Centre (in Cow Bay), Thornton Beach (in Thornton Beach) and Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas (in Port Douglas). Spend the 4th (Mon) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. There's much more to do: trek along Esplanade Boardwalk, tour the pleasant surroundings at Trinity Beach, meet the residents at Cairns Aquarium, and enjoy some diversion at Esplanade Lagoon Pool.
