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 Scuba & Snorkeling and Hartley's Crocodile Adventures. Appreciate the collections at Village Gallery and Underart Gallery. Step out of Cairns to go to Palm Cove and see Palm Cove Beach, which is approximately 32 minutes away. Spend the 20th (Thu) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. The adventure continues: hike along Esplanade Boardwalk, stroll through Trinity Beach, browse the eclectic array of goods at Rusty's Market, and take in the exciting artwork at Doongal Aboriginal Art Gallery Cairns.
