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.
Head to Village Gallery and Rusty's Marketfor plenty of shopping. We've included these beaches for you: Four Mile Beach and Palm Cove Beach. Venture out of the city with trips to Hartley's Crocodile Adventures (in Palm Cove), Port Douglas (Safaris, Studio 49 Artisan Gallery, & more) and Daintree Discovery Centre (in Cow Bay). Spend the 12th (Fri) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. Next up on the itinerary: take an in-depth tour of Historic Village Herberton, appreciate the history behind 1876 Landing Party, admire the striking features of Freshwater Station, and explore the galleries of Underart Gallery.
