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: Hartley's Crocodile Adventures (in Palm Cove) and Port Douglas (Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas & Safaris). Spend the 6th (Fri) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour.

In July, daily temperatures in Cairns can reach 30°C, while at night they dip to 20°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 8th (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
