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 Port Douglas (Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas, Safaris, & more) and Hartley's Crocodile Adventures (in Palm Cove). There's more to do: trek along Esplanade Boardwalk.

To find ratings, photos, maps, and more tourist information, use the Cairns visit planner.

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airport is Cairns International Airport. In July, daily temperatures in Cairns can reach 79°F, while at night they dip to 64°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 5th (Thu) so you can travel back home.
