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.
Your itinerary includes some good beach time at Four Mile Beach and Trinity Beach. Venture out of the city with trips to Port Douglas (Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas, Safaris, & more) and Palm Cove (Spas & Wellness, Hartley's Crocodile Adventures, & more). The adventure continues: trek along Esplanade Boardwalk, take in nature's colorful creations at Botanical Gardens, choose your vessel at Shaolin Junk Cruises, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at St Monica's Cathedral.

To find where to stay, more things to do, traveler tips, and more tourist information, you can read our Cairns road trip planning site .

In July, plan for daily highs up to 30°C, and evening lows to 20°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 25th (Wed) to allow enough time to travel back home.
