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.
Relax by the water at Four Mile Beach and Trinity Beach. Take a break from the city and head to Hartley's Crocodile Adventures and Scuba & Snorkeling. It doesn't end there: tour the water at your own pace with Shaolin Junk Cruises.

To see reviews, other places to visit, and other tourist information, refer to the Cairns trip itinerary builder website .

If you are flying in from Belgium, the closest major airport is Cairns International Airport. In August, plan for daily highs up to 31°C, and evening lows to 20°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 16th (Thu) to allow enough time to travel back home.
