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 out of town with these interesting Cairns side-trips: Port Douglas (Safaris, Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas, & more) and Palm Cove (Hartley's Crocodile Adventures & Palm Cove Beach). There's still lots to do: have fun at Esplanade Lagoon Pool, stroll through Trinity Beach, take an unforgettable tour with a helicopter tour, and take in nature's colorful creations at Botanical Gardens.

To see maps, more things to do, traveler tips, and tourist information, read our Cairns trip builder website .

If you are flying in from Indonesia, the closest major airport is Cairns International Airport. January in Cairns sees daily highs of 37°C and lows of 28°C at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 12th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
