Cairns — 3 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.
Discover out-of-the-way places like Kuranda Candy Kitchen and Cairns Kart Hire Track. Step out of the city life by going to Scuba & Snorkeling and Palm Cove Beach. Take a break from Cairns with a short trip to Australian Butterfly Sanctuary in Kuranda, about 40 minutes away. There's more to do: stroll through Esplanade Boardwalk and explore the world behind art at Samurai Gallery Australia.
