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.
You'll visit kid-friendly attractions like Safaris and Palm Cove Beach. Relax by the water at Four Mile Beach and Trinity Beach. Explore Cairns' surroundings by going to Daintree National Park (in Cape Tribulation) and Hartley's Crocodile Adventures (in Palm Cove). Spend the 21st (Tue) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour.

For reviews, photos, traveler tips, and other tourist information, use the Cairns day trip planning site .

If you are flying in from Germany, the closest major airport is Cairns International Airport. In August, daytime highs in Cairns are 31°C, while nighttime lows are 20°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 25th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
