Tendering from Yorkey's Knob is a long, tedious experience but a necessary evil with large ships - Cairns itself is not much more than a city that seems to primarily cater to back packers. be very careful booking private shore excursions if tendering - you may not make it. If you want to see the reef, it's probably safest to go on a ship run tour

love the Whitsundays - don't bother with Airlie Beach - go to one of the islands such as Daydream or Hamilton if a tour is running.

big ships cannot berth close to the city, necessitating a boring 40 minute drive into the city. Either take a ship's tour or better yet, stay onboard!
