Cairns

A neat, cosmopolitan city of shaded plazas and laid-back neighborhoods, Cairns serves as a popular base for exploration of the surrounding region and the Great Barrier Reef, as well as a center for watersport activities like surfing or waterskiing.
Venture out of the city with trips to Palm Cove (Hartley's Crocodile Adventures & Palm Cove Beach), Port Douglas (Safaris, Four Mile Beach, & more) and Cape Tribulation (Daintree Rainforest - Cooper Creek Wilderness & Daintree National Park). Spend the 26th (Wed) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. And it doesn't end there: have fun at Esplanade Lagoon Pool, tour the pleasant surroundings at Esplanade Boardwalk, identify plant and animal life at Mossman Gorge, and admire the natural beauty at Botanical Gardens.

December in Cairns sees daily highs of 36°C and lows of 26°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 4th (Fri) to allow enough time to travel back home.
