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.
Take a break from the city and head to Safaris and Hartley's Crocodile Adventures. You'll get in some beach time at Four Mile Beach and Trinity Beach. Explore Cairns' surroundings by going to Palm Cove Beach (in Palm Cove), Port Douglas (Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas & With Sugar) and Daintree National Park (in Cape Tribulation). Spend the 3rd (Sun) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. There's much more to do: hike along Esplanade Boardwalk, explore the activities along Centenary Lakes - Cairns Botanic Gardens, identify plant and animal life at Mossman Gorge, and get your game on at Cairns Kart Hire Track.

To find maps, reviews, ratings, and other tourist information, use the Cairns trip maker website .

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airport is Cairns International Airport. In June, daytime highs in Cairns are 79°F, while nighttime lows are 66°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 9th (Sat) to allow enough time to travel back home.
