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 in touch with nature at Birdworld Kuranda and Off-Road Tours. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Atherton Tablelands and Behana Gorge Waterfall. Get out of town with these interesting Cairns side-trips: Hartley's Crocodile Adventures (in Wangetti), Opal Reef (in Port Douglas) and Palm Cove Beach (in Palm Cove). Next up on the itinerary: get interesting insight from Tours, get engrossed in the history at Spy & Camera Museum, head off the coast to Michaelmas Cay, and pause for some photo ops at 1876 Landing Party.
