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.
Satisfy your inner culture vulture at The Australian Armour & Artillery Museum and Bones and Jones. Get in touch with nature at Hartley's Crocodile Adventures and Palm Cove Beach. Take a break from Cairns with a short trip to Kayaking & Canoeing in Palm Cove, about 34 minutes away. Spend the 24th (Wed) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. Spend the 22nd (Mon) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. Next up on the itinerary: take in the dramatic scenery at Josephine Falls, kick back and relax at Trinity Beach, take in the pleasant sights at Red Arrow Walk, and explore the world behind art at Samurai Gallery Australia.
