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.
Change things up with these side-trips from Cairns: Palm Cove (Hartley's Crocodile Adventures & Palm Cove Beach), Daintree National Park (in Cape Tribulation) and Port Douglas (Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas, Safaris, & more). There's lots more to do: hike along Esplanade Boardwalk, take an unforgettable tour with a helicopter tour, have some family-friendly fun at Cairns Kart Hire Track, and enjoy some diversion at Esplanade Lagoon Pool.

For where to stay, photos, ratings, and other tourist information, refer to the Cairns travel route planner.

If you are flying in from Singapore, the closest major airport is Cairns International Airport. June in Cairns sees daily highs of 30°C and lows of 22°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 6th (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
