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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Babinda Boulders (in Babinda), Paronella Park (in Mena Creek) and Kuranda (Wrights Lookout, Kuranda Koala Gardens, &more). Spend the 30th (Thu) exploring nature at Eubenangee Swamp National Park. There's lots more to do: discover the deep blue sea with a scuba or snorkeling tour, tour the pleasant surroundings at Esplanade Boardwalk, admire the natural beauty at Botanical Gardens, and see exotic creatures in open habitats at a safari tour.
