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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Palm Cove (Hartley's Crocodile Adventures & Palm Cove Beach), Port Douglas (Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas, Safaris, & more) and Daintree National Park (in Cape Tribulation). Spend the 7th (Fri) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. Next up on the itinerary: have fun at Esplanade Lagoon Pool, let the kids burn off some steam at Muddy's Playground, take an unforgettable tour with a helicopter tour, and stroll through Trinity Beach.

For where to stay, ratings, more things to do, and other tourist information, refer to the Cairns attractions planner .

If you are flying in from Singapore, 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 your sightseeing early on the 14th (Fri) to allow enough time to travel back home.
