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 Mossman (Shannonvale Tropical Fruit Winery, Mossman Golf Club, &more), Wangetti (Hartley's Crocodile Adventures & Rex Lookout) and Port Douglas (Safaris, Four Mile Beach, &more). Spend the 19th (Fri) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. Spend the 30th (Thu) exploring nature at Curtain Fig National Park. There's still lots to do: get a dose of the wild on a nature and wildlife tour, kick back and relax at Trinity Beach, identify plant and animal life at Atherton Tablelands, and trek along Esplanade Boardwalk.

To find more things to do, reviews, traveler tips, and more tourist information, read our Cairns route planner.
