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've now added Foot and Body Massage to your itinerary. Head to Village Gallery and Sunday Market Port Douglasfor plenty of shopping. Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Daintree Discovery Centre and Ngarru Gallery. Venture out of the city with trips to Hartley's Crocodile Adventures (in Palm Cove), Port Douglas (Four Mile Beach, Safaris, & more) and Walu Wugirriga Lookout (in Cow Bay). Spend the 4th (Sun) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. There's lots more to do: trek along Esplanade Boardwalk, get some fabulous bargains at DFO Cairns, Direct Factory Outlets, buy something for everyone on your list at Stockland Cairns Shopping Centre, and brush up on your military savvy at The Australian Armour & Artillery Museum.
