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.
Shop till you drop at Tanks Arts Centre and Luminous Lights. Your inner history buff will appreciate Historic Village Herberton and St Monica's Cathedral. Get out of town with these interesting Cairns side-trips: Port Douglas (Coffee Works Port Douglas, Funstuff by Lynda, &more), Palm Cove Beach (in Palm Cove) and Hartley's Crocodile Adventures (in Wangetti). Spend the 16th (Tue) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. The adventure continues: browse the eclectic array of goods at Rusty's Market, stroll through Trinity Beach, get some fabulous bargains at DFO Cairns, Direct Factory Outlets, and look for all kinds of wild species at Mossman Gorge Centre.
