The best things to do in Cairns

If you're wondering what to do in Cairns, you'll find the answer in the coasts, forests, and beaches surrounding the city. The city and its surroundings are a spectacle in itself. Of course, many of the most popular Cairns activities can be found in the Great Barrier Reef, which is without a doubt the most important of the places to visit in Cairns. You can dive here and enjoy what's called the world's largest reef.

But there are things to do in Cairns without getting wet, too! One of the attractions in Cairns is Daintree Park, which is called the world's oldest tropical rainforest. Another option for exploring the tropical area is taking the cable car to Kuranda, which has a 7.5 kilometer hiking route among trees millions of years old. 

For more stuff to do in Cairns, go to the esplanade and enjoy swimming, barbecuing, and biking on the beach. Other Cairns attractions are the Rainforestation Nature Park and Tjapukai Aboriginal Cultural Park, where you can learn a bit more about the local culture. Finally, Port Douglas is one of the things to see in Cairns. Its white sand beaches are the ideal place to relax and unwind after a day of intense activity.
