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 Four Mile Beach and Scuba & Snorkeling. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Cairns: Hartley's Crocodile Adventures (in Palm Cove) and Sunday Market Port Douglas (in Port Douglas). There's more to do: pause for some serene contemplation at St Monica's Cathedral.

For ratings, photos, more things to do, and other tourist information, read our Cairns trip itinerary builder website .

Cairns is just a short distance from Kuranda. In June, plan for daily highs up to 30°C, and evening lows to 22°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 17th (Sun) to allow time to travel back home.
