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.
Discover out-of-the-way places like Crystal Cascades and Skydiving. Take a break from the city and head to Nature & Wildlife Tours and Hartley's Crocodile Adventures. Explore Cairns' surroundings by going to Palm Cove (Spas & Palm Cove Beach). Spend the 6th (Tue) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. It doesn't end there: brush up on your military savvy at The Australian Armour & Artillery Museum.
