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.
You'll enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at Four Mile Beach and Palm Cove Beach. Head to Sunday Market Port Douglas and Funstuff by Lyndafor some retail therapy. Explore Cairns' surroundings by going to Shannonvale Tropical Fruit Winery (in Mossman), Port Douglas (Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas, Crystalbrook Superyacht Marina, &more) and Hartley's Crocodile Adventures (in Wangetti). And it doesn't end there: see some colorful creatures with a scuba or snorkeling tour, stop by Cairns Central Shopping Centre, hunt for treasures at Rusty's Market, and hike along Esplanade Boardwalk.
