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.
Your day by day itinerary now includes Historic Village Herberton. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at The Australian Armour & Artillery Museum and Spy & Camera Museum. Take a break from the city and head to Hartley's Crocodile Adventures and Safaris. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Cairns: Port Douglas (St Mary’s by The Sea chapel, Horseback Riding Tours, &more), Lake Eacham Crater Lakes National Park (in Lake Eacham) and Shannonvale Tropical Fruit Winery (in Mossman). There's still lots to do: take in the dramatic scenery at Behana Gorge Waterfall, have unforgettable encounters with a shark diving experience, identify plant and animal life at Michaelmas Cay, and take the plunge with a skydiving experience.
