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 a sense of the local culture at The Australian Armour & Artillery Museum and Samurai Gallery Australia. Discover out-of-the-way places like Josephine Falls and Crystal Cascades. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Cairns: Palm Cove (Hartley's Crocodile Adventures, Palm Cove Beach, & more). Spend the 23rd (Tue) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. Spend the 21st (Sun) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. There's still lots to do: take the plunge with a skydiving experience, browse the eclectic array of goods at Rusty's Market, enjoy the sand and surf at Yorkeys Knob Beach, and stroll through Trinity Beach.
