Cairns

Whether you want to go away for a few days or a couple of weeks, Cairns is the ideal destination.

This is an area of Cairns and Northern Beaches that 150,000 people reside in.

Brisbane, the state capital, is roughly 860 miles southeast of Cairns, and Holloways Beach is 6 miles to the northwest.

After somewhere to take the kids? One of the most exciting family activities is Muddy's Playground.

Ready to try your luck? Take on the roulette wheel or simply enjoy the lively atmosphere at the Reef Hotel Casino.

You'll be inspired by the eclectic collection of local and exotic specimens on display at the Centenary Lakes Botanic Gardens and the Flecker Botanic Gardens.

When the weather is good, Michaelmas and Upolu Cays is the best place to go. Enjoy an invigorating stroll along the shoreline and keep an eye out for colorful shells.

Switch your phone to silent and take a break from the noises of the modern world at Esplanade Lagoon and Mount Whitfield Conservation Park. Nature-loving tourists will also have a wonderful time at Red Arrow Walk and Cattana Wetlands.

You don't need to be an artist to appreciate the pieces at the Cairns Regional Gallery and the Kick Contemporary Arts.

How can you ever be prepared for the ever-changing future if you don't know the past? Head over to the Cairns Historical Society Museum!

Slip back through the mists of time at the Cairns Esplanade, one of the most significant snapshots of history in this area.

Take a trip to Cairns Central Shopping Centre if you like bargain hunting and mingling with local crowds.

If you enjoy an artsy adventure now and then, buy your tickets, settle in to your seat and prepare to be entertained at the Cairns Convention Centre or the Cairns Civic Theatre. The Jute Theatre and the Rondo Theatre are also great spots for local and touring performers.

Tee off at the Cairns Golf Club and watch your ball float down the luscious, green fairway. This peaceful hangout is a great place to practice that swing.

Looking for something different? Check out the Center of Contemporary Arts, the Reef Teach or Cairns Zoom and Wildlife Dome.
