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 out of town with these interesting Cairns side-trips: Port Douglas (Safaris, Port Douglas Golf Tours, &more), Daintree (Daintree Tea, Elizas Gallery, &more) and Mulgrave Settlers Museum (in Gordonvale). Spend the 8th (Wed) exploring nature at Curtain Fig National Park. There's lots more to do: see some colorful creatures with a scuba or snorkeling tour, look for all kinds of wild species at Wildlife Areas, take a leisurely stroll along The Jack Barnes Bicentennial Mangrove Boardwalk, and enjoy the sand and surf at Wonga Beach.

You can plan Cairns trip in no time by asking Inspirock to help create your itinerary.
