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.
Your itinerary includes some good beach time at Four Mile Beach and Palm Cove Beach. Get outdoors at Hartley's Crocodile Adventures and Scuba & Snorkeling. There's still lots to do: stroll through Trinity Beach.

For maps, traveler tips, where to stay, and other tourist information, you can read our Cairns online itinerary planner .

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airport is Cairns International Airport. In June in Cairns, expect temperatures between 79°F during the day and 66°F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 2nd (Mon) to allow time to travel back home.
