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 Safaris and Four Mile Beach. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Cairns: Daintree National Park (in Cape Tribulation), Palm Cove (Hartley's Crocodile Adventures, Palm Cove Beach, & more) and Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas (in Port Douglas). Spend the 9th (Mon) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. There's more to do: hike along Esplanade Boardwalk and tour the pleasant surroundings at Trinity Beach.

To find ratings, maps, more things to do, and more tourist information, refer to the Cairns day trip app .

If you are flying in from New Zealand, the closest major airport is Cairns International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 30°C in July, and nighttime lows around 20°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 14th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
