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.
Step out of the city life by going to Safaris and Scuba & Snorkeling. We've included these beaches for you: Four Mile Beach and Yorkeys Knob Beach. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Cairns: Daintree National Park (in Cape Tribulation), Australian Butterfly Sanctuary (in Kuranda) and Port Douglas (Opal Reef, Port Douglas Microlights, & more). On the 27th (Thu), spend an adventurous day with a kayaking and canoeing tour. Spend the 2nd (Wed) exploring nature at Barron Gorge National Park. Next up on the itinerary: experience rural life at Hartley's Crocodile Adventures, look for all kinds of wild species at Mossman Gorge, kick back and relax at Palm Cove Beach, and stroll through Trinity Beach.

To see reviews, other places to visit, and more tourist information, use the Cairns trip maker website .

If you are flying in from Switzerland, the closest major airport is Cairns International Airport. In December, plan for daily highs up to 36°C, and evening lows to 26°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 6th (Sun) so you can travel back home.
