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.
Head to Sunday Market Port Douglas and Rusty's Marketfor some retail therapy. You'll enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at Four Mile Beach and Palm Cove Beach. Venture out of the city with trips to Hartley's Crocodile Adventures (in Palm Cove), Cape Tribulation (Daintree Rainforest - Cooper Creek Wilderness & Daintree National Park) and Port Douglas (Safaris, Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas, & more). Spend the 5th (Wed) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. Next up on the itinerary: stroll through Trinity Beach, enjoy the sand and surf at Yorkeys Knob Beach, take a stroll around Tanks Arts Centre, and identify plant and animal life at Mossman Gorge.
