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.
You'll get in some beach time at Four Mile Beach and Palm Cove Beach. Step out of the city life by going to Scuba & Snorkeling and Safaris. Explore Cairns' surroundings by going to Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas (in Port Douglas), Palm Cove (Hartley's Crocodile Adventures & Kayaking & Canoeing) and Daintree National Park (in Cape Tribulation). There's still lots to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at Esplanade Boardwalk, pause for some serene contemplation at St Monica's Cathedral, tour the water at your own pace with Shaolin Junk Cruises, and kick back and relax at Trinity Beach.

For photos, more things to do, ratings, and more tourist information, refer to the Cairns trip app .

If you are flying in from Hong Kong, the closest major airport is Cairns International Airport. December in Cairns sees daily highs of 36°C and lows of 26°C at night. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 7th (Fri) so you can travel back home.
