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.
Get some cultural insight at St Monica's Cathedral and The Australian Armour & Artillery Museum. Get in touch with nature at Hartley's Crocodile Adventures and Palm Cove Beach. When in Cairns, make a side trip to see Village Gallery in Palm Cove, approximately 36 minutes away. Spend the 3rd (Mon) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. Spend the 6th (Thu) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. There's lots more to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at Esplanade Boardwalk, take in the exciting artwork at Underart Gallery, explore the different monuments and memorials at McLeod Street Pioneer Cemetery, and admire the masterpieces at Samurai Gallery Australia.
