Snorkel, dive, or do a trip to the Great Barrier Reef—a World Heritage-listed spectacular of coral islands and marine life. Enjoy the oceanfront energy of the Cairns Esplanade and trawl the restaurants, shops, and bars. Go white water rafting in the nearby rivers and take the scenic railway to the tranquil, butterfly-fringed village of Kuranda. Enjoy a day trip to the magical Daintree Rainforest, thought to be the planet’s oldest surviving tropical rainforest.
