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.
Family-friendly places like Hartley's Crocodile Adventures and Scuba & Snorkeling will thrill your kids. Get out of town with these interesting Cairns side-trips: Palm Cove Beach (in Palm Cove) and Port Douglas (Safaris, Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas, & more). The adventure continues: stroll through Esplanade Boardwalk, have fun at Esplanade Lagoon Pool, take a memorable tour with Tours, and let little ones run wild at Figtree Playground.
