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.
Step out of the city life by going to Hartley's Crocodile Adventures and Nature & Wildlife Tours. Go for a jaunt from Cairns to Palm Cove to see Palm Cove Beach about 32 minutes away. Spend the 7th (Tue) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. There's much more to do: trek along Esplanade Boardwalk, do some two-wheel cruising with Trail Bike Adventures, kick back and relax at Trinity Beach, and pause for some serene contemplation at St Monica's Cathedral.
