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.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Cairns: Hartley's Crocodile Adventures (in Palm Cove) and Port Douglas (Safaris & Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas). Spend the 16th (Sun) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. And it doesn't end there: have fun at Esplanade Lagoon Pool, pause for some photo ops at Cairns Cenotaph, admire the natural beauty at Botanical Gardens, and stroll through Esplanade Boardwalk.
