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.
Get in touch with nature at Palm Cove Beach and Four Mile Beach. Venture out of the city with trips to Hartley's Crocodile Adventures (in Palm Cove), Port Douglas (Safaris, Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas, & more) and Australian Butterfly Sanctuary (in Kuranda). Spend the 3rd (Tue) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. Spend the 8th (Sun) exploring nature at Daintree National Park. Next up on the itinerary: hike along Esplanade Boardwalk, look for all kinds of wild species at Mossman Gorge, get your game on at Cairns Kart Hire Track, and choose your vessel at Shaolin Junk Cruises.
