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.
Explore Cairns' surroundings by going to Palm Cove (Hartley's Crocodile Adventures & Palm Cove Beach). Spend the 21st (Mon) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. Spend the 24th (Thu) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. The adventure continues: tour the pleasant surroundings at Esplanade Boardwalk, enjoy the sand and surf at Trinity Beach, have fun at Esplanade Lagoon Pool, and see the world from above with a helicopter tour.
