Cairns

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.
You'll visit kid-friendly attractions like Daintree Discovery Centre and Scuba & Snorkeling. Do some cultural sightseeing at Shannonvale Tropical Fruit Winery and Des Spencer Galleries. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Cairns: Daintree Tea (in Daintree), Palm Cove (Palm Cove Beach & Hartley's Crocodile Adventures) and Port Douglas (Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas, Four Mile Beach, & more). And it doesn't end there: enjoy the sand and surf at Trinity Beach, tour the pleasant surroundings at Yorkeys Knob Beach, view the masterpieces at Underart Gallery, and enjoy some diversion at Esplanade Lagoon Pool.
