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.
We've included these beaches for you: Four Mile Beach and Palm Cove Beach. Take a break from the city and head to Opal Reef and Hartley's Crocodile Adventures. Change things up with these side-trips from Cairns: Historic Village Herberton (in Herberton), Malanda Falls (in Malanda) and Rex Lookout (in Wangetti). Spend the 12th (Sun) exploring nature at Curtain Fig National Park. On the 17th (Fri), spend an adventurous day with a kayaking and canoeing tour. There's much more to do: discover the deep blue sea with a scuba or snorkeling tour, meet the residents at Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas, trek along Esplanade Boardwalk, and take a memorable tour with Tours.

If you are flying in from Singapore, the closest major airport is Cairns International Airport. In August, daily temperatures in Cairns can reach 31°C, while at night they dip to 20°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 17th (Fri) to allow time to travel back home.
