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.
Step out of the city life by going to Hartley's Crocodile Adventures and Scuba & Snorkeling. Change things up with a short trip to Palm Cove Beach in Palm Cove (about 32 minutes away). There's more to do: trek along Esplanade Boardwalk.

To see other places to visit, maps, ratings, and tourist information, use the Cairns day trip website .
