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.
You'll get in some beach time at Four Mile Beach and Yorkeys Knob Beach. Get outdoors at Safaris and Scuba & Snorkeling. Get out of town with these interesting Cairns side-trips: Daintree National Park (in Cape Tribulation), Port Douglas (Horseback Riding Tours, Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas, & more) and Palm Cove (Spas & Wellness, Hartley's Crocodile Adventures, & more). There's lots more to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Trinity Beach, have fun at Esplanade Lagoon Pool, tour the pleasant surroundings at Cow Bay Beach, and choose your vessel at Shaolin Junk Cruises.

To find more things to do, where to stay, other places to visit, and more tourist information, refer to the Cairns trip planner .

If you are flying in from Norway, the closest major airport is Cairns International Airport. In June, plan for daily highs up to 30°C, and evening lows to 22°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 9th (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
