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.
Attractions like Scuba & Snorkeling and Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas make great kid-friendly stops. Change things up with these side-trips from Cairns: Port Douglas (Safaris & Four Mile Beach) and Palm Cove (Hartley's Crocodile Adventures & Palm Cove Beach).

To see more things to do, other places to visit, photos, and other tourist information, use the Cairns online attractions planner .

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airport is Cairns International Airport. In December, plan for daily highs up to 88°F, and evening lows to 73°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 2nd (Wed) early enough to travel back home.
