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.
Explore Cairns' surroundings by going to Jindalba Boardwalk (in Cow Bay), Mulgrave Settlers Museum (in Gordonvale) and Port Douglas (Four Mile Beach, Flagstaff Hill Lookout, &more). The adventure continues: get interesting insight from Tours, get a dose of the wild on a nature and wildlife tour, scramble along the landscape with a canyoning and rapelling tour, and walk around Paronella Park.
