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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Palm Cove (Hartley's Crocodile Adventures & Palm Cove Beach) and Port Douglas (Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas, Safaris, & more). Spend the 7th (Fri) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. And it doesn't end there: enjoy some diversion at Esplanade Lagoon Pool, tour the pleasant surroundings at Esplanade Boardwalk, take an unforgettable tour with a helicopter tour, and let little ones run wild at Muddy's Playground.

To find other places to visit, where to stay, and tourist information, use the Cairns itinerary planning site .

If you are flying in from Singapore, the closest major airport is Cairns International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 36°C in December, and nighttime lows around 26°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 12th (Wed) to allow time to travel back home.
