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.
Get a sense of the local culture at Daintree Discovery Centre and McLeod Street Pioneer Cemetery. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Historic Village Herberton and St Monica's Cathedral. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Cairns: Palm Cove (Palm Cove Beach & Hartley's Crocodile Adventures), Port Douglas (Four Mile Beach & Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas) and Venture Deeper (in Mossman). And it doesn't end there: trek along Esplanade Boardwalk, categoryPhrases.phrase.deepen_your_appreciation_for_local_ecosystems_through Trail Bike Adventures, and have fun at Esplanade Lagoon Pool.
