Cairns - is a small city with many things you can do around, they are fantastic, such as the Great Barrier Reef (and if you can go to the outside reefs better, as the inside reefs are not so spectacular, although the cost will be well more expensive.). The Cable Car until Kuranda over the rainforest offers unique views and you can go for a stroll and watch the waterfalls and forest in a closer look. Other day tours worth to visit such is Port Douglas and a little further Daintree National Park (considered the forest with the biggest variety of plants per square meter on the planet).
