Cairns, the gateway to Australia's Great Barrier Reef, is one of the most gorgeous places in Queensland, Australia. Known for its tours going to Daintree National Park, or transfers to the shores of the Great Barrier Reef, there's also plenty to see and do inside Cairns. Spend half a day discovering Cairns' most popular landmarks, starting with a visit to St. Monica's Cathedral, one of the most breathtaking cathedrals in Australia. After that, drink some delicious afternoon tea at the Flecker Botanical Garden, then go on a guided walk and learn about the various flora and fauna you can find there. Next up, head to the Lower Barron Gorge National Park, and see Surprise Creek Falls. Finally, get a taste of the world famous beaches in Australia and stroll along the beautiful Palm Cove - the perfect way to end half a day of discovering some of Cairns’ best.
