City of Light

A modern metropolis of glassy skyscrapers, waterside boulevards, and lush residential neighborhoods, Perth sits on the edge of the Swan Coastal Plain.
Venture out of the city with trips to Zig Zag Scenic Drive (in Gooseberry Hill), Fremantle Prison (in Fremantle) and Dolphin & Whale Watching (in Mandurah). There's much more to do: walk around Kings Park and Botanic Garden, find something for the whole family at Adventure World, take a leisurely stroll along Elizabeth Quay, and pause for some photo ops at State War Memorial.

The Gateway to the Great Barrier Reef

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.
Get out of town with these interesting Cairns side-trips: Port Douglas (Horses in Port, Safaris, &more) and Hartley's Crocodile Adventures (in Wangetti). Spend the 26th (Thu) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. Next up on the itinerary: trek along Esplanade Boardwalk, enjoy some diversion at Esplanade Lagoon Pool, and get a dose of the wild on a nature and wildlife tour.
