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.
Do your shopping at Sunday Market Port Douglas and Australian Leather Company. Explore hidden gems such as Opal Reef and Tablelands, Waterfalls, and Spanish Castle. Explore Cairns' surroundings by going to Palm Cove (Hartley's Crocodile Adventures, Palm Cove Beach, & more), Port Douglas (Four Mile Beach, Safaris, & more) and Birdworld Kuranda (in Kuranda). Spend the 13th (Wed) exploring nature at Curtain Fig National Park. Spend the 6th (Wed) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. And it doesn't end there: relax in the rural setting at Gallo DairyLand, identify plant and animal life at Granite Gorge Nature Park, enjoy the sand and surf at Trinity Beach, and explore the striking landscape at Babinda Boulders.

To see photos, maps, where to stay, and tourist information, refer to the Cairns online driving holiday planner .

If you are flying in from New Zealand, the closest major airport is Cairns International Airport. In June, daytime highs in Cairns are 30°C, while nighttime lows are 22°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 20th (Wed) so you can travel back home.
