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.
Get outdoors at Gallo DairyLand and Babinda Boulders. Step off the beaten path and head to Michaelmas Cay and Shark Diving. Explore Cairns' surroundings by going to Kayaking & Canoeing (in Palm Cove) and Jaques Coffee Plantation (in Mareeba). There's more to do: identify plant and animal life at Atherton Tablelands.

To find reviews, maps, ratings, and other tourist information, use the Cairns trip planner.

In July, plan for daily highs up to 30°C, and evening lows to 20°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 22nd (Sun) to allow enough time to travel back home.
