What does everyone reakon the top 5 things to do in Cairns are? I've already got scuba diving in the great barrier reef down!!

that's another question - we'll already have our padi licences by the time we go out to cairns, so is it quite easy just to hire out equipment and a boat out there?

thanks!!! anna x

Sugar world? I don't know. That's kind of a lame thing I guess. No I'd actually recommend seeing the rainforests. You can easily access them from Cairns and they're beautiful. Here is the sky rail link.

check out the Carins Race Track.
We spent a Saturday there (with the Locals) and was a great laugh!
We had horse racing in the day and Dog racing in the evening. Beer was cheap and it was gold coin entry (i.e. $1 each!)
Made a change from the Woolshed
