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.
Kids will enjoy Daintree Discovery Centre and Safaris. Let the collections at Village Gallery and Michael Seebeck Gallery capture your imagination. Venture out of the city with trips to Rex Lookout (in Wangetti), Port Douglas (Four Mile Beach, Studio 49 Artisan Gallery, & more) and Palm Cove (Hartley's Crocodile Adventures & Palm Cove Beach). Spend the 13th (Sun) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. And it doesn't end there: view the masterpieces at Underart Gallery, explore the galleries of Doongal Aboriginal Art, take in the architecture and atmosphere at St Monica's Cathedral, and make a splash at Sugarworld Waterpark.
