Cairns

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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Port Douglas (Safaris, Four Mile Beach, &more), Wangetti (Hartley's Crocodile Adventures & Rex Lookout) and Mossman (Shannonvale Tropical Fruit Winery, Mossman Golf Club, &more). Spend the 19th (Fri) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. Spend the 30th (Thu) exploring nature at Curtain Fig National Park. There's lots more to do: hike along Esplanade Boardwalk, look for all kinds of wild species at Australian Butterfly Sanctuary, enjoy the sand and surf at Palm Cove Beach, and take a memorable tour with Tours.

To find reviews, other places to visit, photos, and more tourist information, you can read our Cairns trip maker site.
