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.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Cairns: Palm Cove (Hartley's Crocodile Adventures & Palm Cove Beach), Port Douglas (Safaris, Four Mile Beach, & more) and Daintree National Park (in Cape Tribulation). Spend the 21st (Fri) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. There's still lots to do: trek along Esplanade Boardwalk, get your game on at Cairns Kart Hire Track, kick back and relax at Trinity Beach, and take a memorable tour with Tours.

To find maps, traveler tips, where to stay, and tourist information, use the Cairns trip itinerary planner.

London, UK to Cairns is an approximately 23.5-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 10 hours traveling from London to Cairns.
