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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Hartley's Crocodile Adventures (in Palm Cove) and Port Douglas (Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas & Safaris). Spend the 11th (Wed) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour.

To see other places to visit, reviews, maps, and tourist information, refer to the Cairns day trip planning app .

Expect a daytime high around 30°C in July, and nighttime lows around 20°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 13th (Fri) to allow enough time to travel back home.
