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.
Get outdoors at Safaris and Scuba & Snorkeling. Bring the kids along to Four Mile Beach and Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas. Explore Cairns' surroundings by going to Palm Cove (Hartley's Crocodile Adventures & Palm Cove Beach). And it doesn't end there: stroll through Esplanade Boardwalk, kick back and relax at Trinity Beach, and take in the waterfront at The Jack Barnes Bicentennial Mangrove Boardwalk.

For photos, more things to do, where to stay, and other tourist information, read our Cairns trip maker .

December in Cairns sees daily highs of 36°C and lows of 26°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 29th (Sat) to allow enough time to travel back home.
