Cairns can be done in a day - although there are day trips and tours once you escape civilisation - and of course the sea might have something to offer.. ;)
The town has this fabulous man-made lagoon for chilling/swimming, as the area is actually just mangrove swamps.
I popped into the local museum = a very entertaining experience - a slightly crazy tour guide who got us all to 'wear' croc skulls, shark jaws and even sawfish! Other weird stuff included gas-operated irons and water-powered kitchen mixers - it was all there!
The YHA had a great communal area - including pool and spa - extremely nice having a foot spa when waiting for midnight Greyhound buses! As I left the rain cleaned out Cairns.
