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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Port Douglas (Four Mile Beach, Ngarru Gallery, &more), Palm Cove Beach (in Palm Cove) and Hartley's Crocodile Adventures (in Wangetti). Spend the 7th (Thu) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. There's still lots to do: hike along Esplanade Boardwalk, observe the fascinating underwater world at Cairns Aquarium, don't miss a visit to Green Island, and take in the exciting artwork at Bones and Jones.
