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.
Relax by the water at Palm Cove Beach and Yorkeys Knob Beach. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Cairns: Palm Cove (Spas & Wellness & Hartley's Crocodile Adventures). Spend the 5th (Fri) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. Spend the 7th (Sun) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. There's still lots to do: stroll through Trinity Beach, see the world from above with a helicopter tour, have fun at Esplanade Lagoon Pool, and take in nature's colorful creations at Botanical Gardens.
