Cairns is probably in the top5 of tourist destinations in Australia. From here you can go on tours to the Great Barrier Reef and Daintree and Cape Tribulation and of course all the islands and even further north into the Cape York peninsula.
If you a thrill seeker Cairns is the place to be. There's of course scuba diving, but you can also go rafting, bungy jumping, sky diving, canoeing and much more!
What I liked best about Cairns was the Esplanade down by the sea, you could see lots of different birds and the mountains in the distance. And of course I also went out to the Reef...
