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 in touch with nature at Four Mile Beach and Hartley's Crocodile Adventures. You'll get in some beach time at Palm Cove Beach and Trinity Beach. Get out of town with these interesting Cairns side-trips: Port Douglas (Scuba & Snorkeling, Safaris, & more) and Daintree National Park (in Cape Tribulation). There's still lots to do: hike along Esplanade Boardwalk, choose your vessel at Shaolin Junk Cruises, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at St Monica's Cathedral.

For where to stay, ratings, and tourist information, refer to the Cairns travel site .

July in Cairns sees daily highs of 30°C and lows of 20°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 28th (Sat) to allow time to travel back home.
