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.

Spend the 20th (Thu) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. There's still lots to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at Esplanade Boardwalk, enjoy some diversion at Esplanade Lagoon Pool, and take in nature's colorful creations at Botanical Gardens.
