Cairns

— 11 nights

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.
Visiting Safaris and Off-Road Tours will get you outdoors. Museum-lovers will get to explore Mareeba Heritage Museum and Visitor Information Centre and Doongal Aboriginal Art Gallery Cairns. Venture out of the city with trips to Hartley's Crocodile Adventures (in Wangetti), Mulgrave Settlers Museum (in Gordonvale) and Birdworld Kuranda (in Kuranda). Spend the 1st (Thu) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. Spend the 6th (Tue) exploring nature at Mt. Hypipamee National Park. There's lots more to do: kick back and relax at Etty Bay, identify plant and animal life at Atherton Tablelands, explore the gorgeous colors at Opal Reef, and make a trip to Cathedral Fig Tree.
