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.
Head to Tolga Woodworks Gallery & Cafe and Butterfly Shop Kurandafor plenty of shopping. Explore hidden gems such as Historic Village Herberton and Babinda Boulders. Change things up with these side-trips from Cairns: Port Douglas (Whileaway & Funstuff by Lynda) and Kuranda (Australian Butterfly Sanctuary & Kuranda Candy Kitchen). There's much more to do: identify plant and animal life at Atherton Tablelands, head off the coast to Michaelmas Cay, look for gifts at Luminous Lights, and discover the deep blue sea with Cairns Dive Centre.
