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'll find plenty of places to visit near Cairns: Palm Cove (Hartley's Crocodile Adventures & Palm Cove Beach). Spend the 29th (Thu) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. Next up on the itinerary: get outside with Esplanade Lagoon Pool, take in the architecture and atmosphere at St Monica's Cathedral, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Esplanade Boardwalk.

Ask Inspirock to suggest an itinerary and make planning a trip to Cairns fast, fun, and easy.
