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.
Discover out-of-the-way places like Etty Bay and Atherton Tablelands. Your itinerary includes some good beach time at Trinity Beach and Palm Cove Beach. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Cairns: Daintree Rainforest - Cooper Creek Wilderness (in Cape Tribulation), Babinda Boulders (in Babinda) and Cow Bay (Walu Wugirriga Lookout & Cow Bay Beach). The adventure continues: identify plant and animal life at Tablelands, Waterfalls, and Spanish Castle, make a trip to St Mary’s by The Sea chapel, kick back and relax at Wonga Beach, and stroll through Yorkeys Knob Beach.

To see other places to visit, where to stay, traveler tips, and other tourist information, go to the Cairns trip planner .
