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 outdoors at Hartley's Crocodile Adventures and Palm Cove Beach. Spend the 24th (Sun) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. Spend the 22nd (Fri) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. And it doesn't end there: tour the pleasant surroundings at Esplanade Boardwalk, take in the exciting artwork at Bones and Jones, enjoy unforgettable views with a balloon tour, and cast your line with a fishing tour.
