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 out of town with these interesting Cairns side-trips: Port Douglas (Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas, Safaris, & more) and Palm Cove (Hartley's Crocodile Adventures & Palm Cove Beach). And it doesn't end there: stroll through Esplanade Boardwalk, have fun at Muddy's Playground, tour the water at your own pace with Shaolin Junk Cruises, and admire the natural beauty at Botanical Gardens.

For reviews, photos, other places to visit, and tourist information, go to the Cairns trip planner.

If you are flying in from United Kingdom, the closest major airport is Cairns International Airport. July in Cairns sees daily highs of 30°C and lows of 20°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 17th (Tue) early enough to travel back home.
