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.
Escape the urban bustle at Daintree Rainforest - Cooper Creek Wilderness and Scuba & Snorkeling. Change things up with these side-trips from Cairns: Hartley's Crocodile Adventures (in Palm Cove) and Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas (in Port Douglas). There's still lots to do: step off the mainland to explore Michaelmas Cay and trek along Esplanade Boardwalk.

If you are flying in from Singapore, the closest major airport is Cairns International Airport. In December, daytime highs in Cairns are 36°C, while nighttime lows are 26°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 25th (Tue) so you can travel back home.
