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 Palm Cove (Hartley's Crocodile Adventures, Spas, & more), Port Douglas (Safaris, Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas, & more) and Walu Wugirriga Lookout (in Cow Bay). Spend the 15th (Sun) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. Spend the 19th (Thu) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. Next up on the itinerary: trek along Esplanade Boardwalk, take a peaceful walk through Daintree Rainforest - Cooper Creek Wilderness, let little ones run wild at Muddy's Playground, and enjoy some diversion at Esplanade Lagoon Pool.
