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.
Relax by the water at Palm Cove Beach and Trinity Beach. Get outdoors at Hartley's Crocodile Adventures and Esplanade Boardwalk. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Cairns: Palm Cove (Village Gallery & Spas & Wellness). Spend the 22nd (Mon) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. Spend the 20th (Sat) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. The adventure continues: see what you can catch with a fishing tour, have fun at Esplanade Lagoon Pool, brush up on your military savvy at The Australian Armour & Artillery Museum, and explore the world behind art at KickArts Contemporary Arts.
