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.
Bring the kids along to Palm Cove Beach and Safaris. You'll get in some beach time at Four Mile Beach and Yorkeys Knob Beach. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Cairns: Daintree National Park (in Cape Tribulation), Port Douglas (Port Douglas Microlights, Opal Reef, & more) and Kuranda (Australian Butterfly Sanctuary & Doongul Aboriginal Art Gallery). Spend the 7th (Tue) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. Spend the 23rd (Thu) exploring nature at Barron Gorge National Park. The adventure continues: relax in the rural setting at Hartley's Crocodile Adventures, look for all kinds of wild species at Tablelands, Waterfalls, and Spanish Castle, get curious at Daintree Discovery Centre, and get interesting insight from Shaolin Junk Cruises.

If you are flying in from Germany, the closest major airport is Cairns International Airport. In August, plan for daily highs up to 31°C, and evening lows to 20°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 28th (Tue) so you can travel back home.
