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.
Kids will appreciate attractions like Hartley's Crocodile Adventures and Palm Cove Beach. Spend the 27th (Thu) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. Spend the 28th (Fri) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. Next up on the itinerary: have fun at Esplanade Lagoon Pool, hike along Esplanade Boardwalk, let the kids burn off some steam at Muddy's Playground, and take in the waterfront at The Jack Barnes Bicentennial Mangrove Boardwalk.
