Take a small ship cruise to the beautiful city of Cairns, located in the Northeast region of Australia, with port access to the Coral Sea. Cairns is a popular tourist destination due to its comfortable tropical climate. Still, it is most well known for being the gateway to the Great Barrier Reef: a common stopping point for travelers preparing to explore one of the world's most fascinating sights. To glimpse Australia's extensive history, consider visiting the tasteful Tjapukai Aboriginal Cultural Park. Join a small ship cruise like the Coral Sea to access smaller reefs, ports, and beaches.
